removing roll cage padding

i got a bit over zealous today and cut off the padding to the roll cage. everything is fine except the wires running up the dirver side roll bar into the speakers....it looks tacky as hell,and seems vulnerable to problems becuase its exposed... any ideas?

Encase the wires in some flex-loom. Flex-Loom, is the flexable plastic tubing that is cut along the length to encase wires from abrasion. It is what the factory uses to make wiring harnesses with. Just look under your hood. All auto parts stores and audio shops sell it.

More than likely, they are soldered in. Trace the wires twards the stereo and see if you can find a harness connector to disconnect them at. Flex loom is cut along its length, so you should not have to fish the wires from an end.

they aren't soldered, if you take the cover off the sound bar you will see a connector and all you have to do is unclip it.
