i have a mild tuck on my hatch...t he only problem about this is most ppl on who try and do it but don't replace the wires could end up hurting yourself later down the road...i had a custom harness made with labels on  every single wire so there's no guess work if i break down or something

yeah that is the way I would do it.

growing up as a Mechanica l engineer with a cousin who is an electrica l engineer tend not to mess around.  Do it right the first time.

Wire tucks look best on EF's but they are the biggest pain in the ass ever. They are older and there is ALOT of wire extending . Just relocatin g your battery alone makes it cleaner in the engine bay. It's definitel y a weekend project.
I hate signature pictures.

I have done 2 wire tuck so fas and I don't think they are that hard to do at all. My first was on a EG civic and the second was to my CRX. Both came out really good with no problems.
