    Mike,
    At the rate you've been hitting it, I'm sure you will meet your goal!

    • Thanks Ryan. Today I made the small harness that runs from the blower switch to the blower resistor. That wiring is not included in the AAW wiring kit.

      • You’ve really been on a roll Mike! A lot of work for sure!! Wiring can really be a time consuming activity but well worth the end results. Keep up the good work!!

          Thanks Tater. Today after clearing some snow I started wrapping the wires under the hood into separate harness's. I ran out of the TechFlex harness wrap & had to order more so I am at a stand still.

          • Today I worked on hiding the harness that runs from the center firewall hole to the solenoid under the r/s fender.

            1st pic, I drilled a 7/8" hole in the r/s rear inner fender panel & ran the harness through a grommet out under the fender.



            2nd pic, Routing of the harness under the r/s fender.



            3rd pic, The harness re-enters the engine compartment through another grommet in the lower part of the r/s front inner fender panel & hooks to the solenoid.

            • Today I spent a few hours in the garage hiding the f/e lighting & horn wires under the l/s fender.

              1st pic, I drilled a 7/8" hole in the l/s rear inner fender panel just below & forward of the hood hinge & ran the harness through a grommet out under the fender.



              2nd pic, The harness re-enters the engine compartment through a grommet in the lower part of the l/s front inner fender panel & out through a hole in the l/s lower part of the radiator support to the front of the car.



              3rd pic, All the f/e lighting & horn wires temp in place until I can hang the fenders so I can cut the wires to length & install the plug ends.

                • Today I decided to move the EFI fuel pump relay to the interior by the AAW relay pack & the inertia switch. I mounted the ignition box on the l/s inner fender panel & started running the wires.

                  • Last Monday I hooked the rear body harness to the main harness along with the electric fuel pump power wire wrapped them & feed them through the rocker channel to the trunk.

                            Thanks Ryan. All those wires made nervous when I first started too. I just take one circuit at a time complete it, cross it off my list & go on to the next one. That way it is not to overwhelming.
