Mark's MAD Electrical (New Stuff) - Can you show me your install?

Hi - I am in the process of upgrading to Mark's "New Stuff" system and looking for some ideas on where to mount the following:

- Terminal Block on the firewall
- Relays for the headlights
- Remote starter solenoid (battery is in stock location)

Ideally I would like all the hardware not to be in plain view. Tucked away but still accessible.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Re: Mark's MAD Electrical (New Stuff) - Can you show me your install?

I have never seen one of these kits installed but by the description on the webpage I would think the headlight relays are best on the radiator shroud by the Horn Relay/Main Bus. Maybe the best location for the terminal block is next to the trim-tag where vehicles with power top/windows mounted the circuit breaker. Remote starter on the pass side fender skirt or firewall above the heater box?

I only did the headlite upgrade and mounted the new relays just below the horn relay. Worked out well. Good upgrade.

How do you remove the solenoid from a GM starter and mount it somewhere else?

I put the relays next to the horn relay also,but I also went with the 12si alt. so no voltage reg. box in the way. Lights work so much better.

"How do you remove the solenoid from a GM starter and mount it somewhere else?"

You don't, you end up adding ANOTHER relay that will make problems, and keep the one that should have been cooled off correctly in the first place, on the starter.

You add a solenoid if you are doing a battery in the truck. The terminal block basically does the same thing as the buss on the horn relay.

I am upgrading to a 12SI so that will free up some space where the current voltage regulator is. Would be a good spot for the headlight relays.

@69-Pace - Is that power top/windows mounted the circuit breaker you referred to in the assembly manual? I do see some dimples near my trim tag that might be for mounting.
