Hiding A/C Wiring and Relays

PO installed Gen IV VA and left the relays and wiring screwed all over the engine compartment, mostly on passenger side fender. I want to hide everything so I don't have to look at it, but want it someplace dry, of course.

1) Do I move it inside the firewall somewhere?
2) If so (or no), where, specifically, should I attach the relays?
3) To move everything, do I just get longer wires?
4) Can you share pic/ideas of where you run your wires and relays?

I have the VA install manual, but the diagram doesn't seem to jive with what the PO set up here. Don't know if he just did his own thing, or what?

Here's some video - sorry it's so dark, but you can get an idea of what I'm dealing with:


Thanks for everyone's time.

Cool video. reminds of blair witch project. It doesnt look that bad, the wiring job.

Why do you want to move it? Asthetics?

Only thing it's missing is dead people and woods!

Yeah, purely an aesthetic issue for me. It just looks... Messy.

Re: Hiding A/C Wiring and Relays

Here is pic of my Gen IV 69 Camaro install I did. Those two relays are inside my car and I ran the other wires behind the fender.

Re: Hiding A/C Wiring and Relays

That's exactly the look I want: no mess! Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you, Scott.
