Front wing - turn signal wiring / routing question
So maybe I'm overlooking something or not thinking clearly. I've got the front wing apart, and I'm trying to make sense of the wiring routing as it sits currently.
As can be seen in the attached photo (with my notes on it), the wiring loom comes in essentially from the top of the wing (technically over the galvanized inner fender) on the outside and drops down from the top.
From here, it wraps underneath the headlight opening and heads towards the inside of the wing (towards the radiator surround). Here the wiring connects with 2 bullet connectors, and heads out of the cavity through a grommet and then loops BACK on the outside...coming back up the other side through a similar hole/grommet. It then connects to the turn signal.
My question is why does it take this seemingly strange, long, path? Why not when it drops in from the main loom coming in from the top just plug into the turn signal?
At first I thought it may be for a quick disconnect if one were to take the wing off but wanted to leave the turn signal assembly in the headlight bezel you could just pull it through the grommet underneath from the outside. BUT the marker light would still be connected and have to be undone anyhow, so doesn't make sense for one to be accessible and one not.
The reason I ask is that I've got the wing off and am planning to put some weatherpaks in place of the current wiring and was wondering if I could skip the strange wiring path it seems to take (or if there was some reason I should use the same routing).
