    i just opened up the sheathing a little bit (well all the way around) in one spot and wrapped the wires together pretty good and taped it off...no i didn't do anything with the seats in the whole process besides having to move them back and forth a lot when i was taking off and putting back on all the panels...but i ended up deciding that it was too difficult to run the wires under the carpet and decided to run the wires along the door sills and up under the steering wheel panel area making my way back over to the center console and just back to where the cigarette lighter is...there is plenty of wiring to do it that way and i just thought it was easier than messing with snaking the wire up under the carpet

    man thanks alot for the info. It's helps alot. couple more questions. When you spliced into the wires in the cigarette lighter did you actually cut the wires and splice the ends together or did you just open up the sheathing on the wire alittle to expose it and then wrap the controller wire around that. Lastley did you have to take the seats out at all to get the wires under the carpet or was that pretty easy. Thanks again. I think I may try it.

    oh...one last note - it was a little difficult to pop out the power jack/cigarette lighter and usb connection in the center console so be gentle and patient with it...from what i remember there might be tabs in the back that release them because i struggled to pop them out for the install...particularly the usb connection was the most difficult so be careful

    i went to pep boys and found an epoxy putty that is reinforced with steel that sets great and seals it off perfectly...and to finally answer your battery question - no, i didn't disconnect the battery and everything seems to be fine

    if you choose to do it like i did you'll have to drill a hole in the chassis near where the wire will come out of the drain plug on the passenger side and then wire it diagonally so that it pops out of a hole already in the chassis a few inches away and from there you connect the wire to the motor - note: i decided to do it that way because i had to deal with the fact that the exhaust shop welded the cutouts a little too close on one side so that the electrical would have been touching the hot exhaust piping on the motor side so i therefore had to mount the motor facing out instead of in...when you go to drill the holes in the drain plug/plugs it will need to be 1/2 inch at least so that the wires can fit through - and when you go to seal the drain plug after everything is completed i would recommend using what i used...

    all the instructions provided in the DIY thread for the QTP install regarding disassembling the panels and covers on the center console are pretty straight forward so there's not really any issues with that - but what i ended up doing with the wires that go under the car to the motors was running each wire through its respective side instead of running both through the drain plug under the driver's side feet...

    yeah i got the electronic controller as well and no i didn't need the yellow wire so i just taped off the end and tucked it away neatly...i wired my controller like they recommend - to the power jack/cigarette lighter in the center console...what you have to do is splice the green with white wire and connect the red wire to it making sure that it catches a good feed from that wire and that you tape it off sufficiently so that you never have to go back and do it again...then you splice the black wire from the same power jack/cigarette lighter and connect the black wire from the controller to it - again making sure that it gets a good feed from that ground (the black wire is always ground) and that you tape it off sufficiently so that it can't come undone and you won't have to bother with it ever again...

    did you get the electric controller and if so did you do anything with the yellow wire. How did you wire your controller and what to. I would like to have all my wiring done prior to taking it to the shop as well so I can be in and out, but I am not the best when it comes to electric stuff. Did you undo your battery like they said when you wired it up? Thanks man sorry for all the ?'s but I'm ready to get these damn things in already.
