Running wires

Can street classes run wires under the vehicle? I was thinking of putting inside plastic pipe.

All of the components in the sound system (with the exception of an external podium or source unit) must be located within the external OEM "skin" of the vehicle. (This includes, but is not limited to alternators, batteries, power cables, amplifiers, enclosures, and speakers.)

Additional Guidelines:
  • If the vehicle is a pickup truck, then equipment may be installed in the bed of the truck provided the bed is covered by a commercially available bed cover or camper. Alternately, the equipment may be installed inside of a tool box. In classes where a no-wall restriction exists, compliance with the "wall test" will still be required.
Although the judge just said its a gay rule, and not enforced

wrong, the undercarriage of the car is not part of the external skin of the car, this is why battery boxes are allowed and so is wire under the car.

Straight from the dbdrag rule definitions:
Vehicle Skin - The dBDRA defines the "skin" of the vehicle as the external shell (top, front, back, and sides) of the vehicle's OEM body that gives the vehicle its distinctive appearance. This is also the part of the vehicle that is normally painted. The underside or undercarriage of the vehicle is not considered to be a part of the OEM "skin".
