    Fuse Box relocation write-up

    ok so in reference to relocating the fuseboxes on the LS1 cars...

    requirements/tools:

    AIR pump must be deleted
    Sawzall or equivalent
    15mm wrench
    standard screwdriver
    wire loom or door edge trim
    candy bar



    So to get started.

    1. disconnect the positive (+) battery cable

    2. disconnect the main power lead to the fuse boxes (usually under the red plastic cap) using the 15mm wrench.

    3. take the fuse boxes out of their bracket using a flat head screwdriver

    4. pull the fuse boxes out of the way of the metal where the AIR pump mounted. (i used some cable ties to suspend them out of my way, a bored girlfriend would also work)

    5. CAREFULLY cut out some of the metal under where the boxes used to be to make the hole large enough for them to fit through.

    6. for added protection, put some wire loom or edge molding on the edges of the hole.

    7. push the fuse boxes through the hole and run the main power cable under the frame and attach it to its terminal and put the 15mm nut back on its stud.

    8. re-connect power cable.

    9. eat candy bar

    Optional:

    i made a lexan cover for the hole using the stock fuse box mount bracket thats spot welded to the inner fender. note that i also have a bunch of other crap in that area like my methanol pump, nitrous wiring etc.
