Any tips on engine bay deletes/tucking/shaving?

Guys I need some knowledge and some insight on the whole delete/shave/tuck thing for the bay of my 94 VTEC.

I love the look of everything all clean and spaced out, not cluttered or anything. But my lude is a daily driver so I don't know how soon I will be giving up on my a/c lol. Its hot as it will ever be here in eastern NC. But I really am willing to accommodate to my preferences on it.

It seems like it would be pretty hard driving without power steering, but like I said...idk much of anything about how wires are tucked and so forth. I also am curious to know what exactly does "shaving" mean as far as this goes? I am not sure to what is shaved away. Im guessing the empty holes in the bay?

Help me out here guys!

Serious question:

Have you attempted to look into this at all? Same question into google gives you a couple hundred pages of shaved bays over on HT, and even some threads on wire tucks etc. on Preludes

I honestly haven't googled this question. But I will now that you brought it to my attention. Idk why I never think to research the more complicated things first. Lol maybe once I do this I can ask more specific questions.

DIY: Final 5th gen wire tuck! (no cutting required)
^^ read this.
If it's more than you are comfortable with...stay stock, simple green your engine bay and call it a day.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

How 'bout you do that, and search this site, prior to creating new threads.
Cuz chances are 99.9999% that the question has been asked before.


Kthxbye
