A lot of those under hood relays are emissions related and they could be deleted if you spend some quality time with a wiring diagram.
I have to go change my shirt, all the drooling from looking at your pics got it kind of wet.

yes, I will eliminate what i wont use, But I will be adding a few too. I like to put the headlights and wiper motor on relays. I will also not be using the electrovalve or the voltage regulator. I removed the emissions bracket from the inner fender on the passenger side today as well as sanded and prepped for paint tomorrow under hood.
