So progress is fickle, I spent the bulk of my day off "fabricating" a replacement vent for my driver side heater out of some aluminum I got out of the duct aisle from home depot. Unfortuantely/embarrasingly I learned that the adhesive I used was not effective so I will be re-gluing tonight after I get off work.
I have went ahead and begun paving out my new projects and plans for the future. Primarily electrical work!
Below we have a rough "before" pic of my electrical wiring, it is all wrapped in electrical tape, I have gotten 85% or so off. I don't really like the idea of re-wrapping it in E-tape.
I have seen some mixed reviews here of what people use to seal their electrical lines but how do we feel about plastic flex conduit such as this?

I like the idea of slicing the side like the image below so I don't have to undo/rewire anything. If this idea seems reasonable, then I could ziptie every 6 Inches or so to keep everything secure and tight.
I have seen other people mention using Pex or PVC as conduit, but I don't really want to undo everything and slide it through pipes. But it really wouldn't be that hard I suppose.
After much debate, I have changed my plans again to turn my passenger side stairwell into a battery box. This makes a lot of sense since I don't have the welding skills to make a good box that i can trust, and it will be much easier to keep the temperature stable within the box as well as perform basic maintenance on my flooded batteries. I will draw out a plan for my intentions later to present to everyone.
Amazing how fast time flies, it's already turning to April. Thanks again everyone for all your help so far! I look forward to presenting more satisfying progress to you before 2017!
