Looks good...and really clean. What about making a bracket and mount it to the top of the ps bracket? wires would be close or in a bundle that is already there. You wouldn't have to drape it over the non cluttered place you cleaned up.
again, looks great!!

Hey, the bay looks good. Will be starting mine in the spring. What did you use for the welded seems on the apron panels. How were they prepped? Did you grind down the welds and seam sealer them? Cover all the bases for my go at it.
