Does AAW facilitate or can it facilitate with longer wires the relocation of the Fuse panel to the trunk of a Tri5?

No, not with the Classic update product. You could use the universal Hgwy 22 with the trunk mount kit, but we do not recommend it. That car is too big and the fuse panel ends up being too far away from things. On something like a 32 car, you can get away with it. In addition, the Classic update has all the items to complete your install in a tri5. Those items are not available separately.

Donny,
That is disappointing. So does the harness allow for placement in any other location OTHER than the stock location?

It does not mount in the exact location as the accessory panel does. Go to our website and you can download the instructions so you can see where it mounts. We give you a mounting plate and all the specialized hardware to mount it. What are your concerns?

Thank you Donny, That kit looks pretty self explanatory from looking at the instruction sheets. My only concern is from the initial look the colors do not necessarily correspond to the Tri5 colors so perhaps I can make the Classic update kit work by relocating the fuse panel to the original Tri5 glove box by fabricating a panel to mount it with in the area behind the door. It looks like the distance is about the same with (again without know the lengths) only some very minor concerns regarding wire lengths towards the driver's side). What are your thoughts about doing this?
Thank you,
Bob

No Bob, that will not work. The dash harness is built and all the lengths to the connections and switches are based on the fusebox being mounted on the LH side of the firewall. In addition, the wire colors are later GM style, not 55-7 style. Only OE style stuff will be the original color. What are you building? Details, perhaps I can offer a suggestion or two.

Rewiring a '56 2 door 210 Del Ray. Custom Restomod.
The gauges are VDO Millennium. The ignition is MSD Digital and the Battery is a Yellow Top Optima mounted in the trunk using 1/0 Gauge positive and negative running up the frame rail to the engine compartment. The headlights are HIDs. The ignition switch is yours.
