I also hard wired in a battery tender wire loom so I can plug the car in under the dash when we're not driving it. Just thought I'd share my day.

Looks pretty good. You're doing better than I am. How did you wire in the batt. tender? I'm interested because I want to put in the batt. isolator under the dash and I'm not sure where.

The tender came with a hardwire option. I just extended it a little. Ran the wires thru the firewall with the inline fuse under the dash. The tender isnt attached to the car, just the wires. It plugs in under the dash, then into the wall outlet.
I added this due to concerns about the amp. I Installed for the ipod possibly pulling too much juice for the generator to restore.

I kept my car on a tender whenever not in use, but mine was wired through to my 'always hot' lighter outlet that I installed in the ash tray. It was nice because I could hide it away when not in use, and use it as a power outlet for my GPS when on trips =)

Your car looks gorgeous!
