Novak made some translucent wire back a few years ago, it came with the xrs speedo. The colors definitely weren't as vibrant as the wire in the pics. I don't know if you can find it around anymore though.

I always thought that coiled wires make things look messy. You're better off folding them and tucking them between the servo and receiver.

About the photography? It's ok... The hot spot in the first shot is distracting and it will naturally draw the eye.

Hot spots in both. Colors are good the depth of field on the second one either needs to be a lot shallower or deeper.

Hot spots on the second are fine IMO... Depth of field definitely needs to be deeper on the second pic. Other than that, they are alright.

Something to do with the insulation or something.

Here's some pictures rather than video image:

The wiring is difficult to see. From what I can see it looks alright, but we need better light and angles.

Wiring looks good. Do you have a normal birds eye view of the car?
