    Wiring to the battery on Astra G cabby

    I couldnt find how to get through the bulkhead to the battery at the weekend, but i need to really. I took the glovebox out, but couldn't get my wire through where the rest of the wires are.

    How does everyone else do it ?

    If thats the case, should i run the audio cables up the left and power up the right? i know they should be on different sides, usually power is up the left and audio up the right.

    can do it that way, though i left my RCA cables down the right-hand side, and ran the power cable past the RCA's (kind of zig-zagged the power cable from left to right) and under the dash to run down the left-hand side under the door trim to the boot.

    Covertiables are a little more tricky to get into the boot that a hatch but not as bad as the MK2's

    possibly. believe it depends on the type of accelerator (electric or on a wire like a pulley) you have. best to just have a look either from inside the car, or from the enigine bay (can be hard to spot)
