    Got a little work done.

    Today the weather at the Jersey shore is beautiful, mid 70's & mostly sunny so I decided to take advantage of the good weather & roll the 69 Coupe out of the garage & cut out the l/s front torque box & floor support. Here is as far as I got when I busted my last sawzall blade.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    Today I wrapped more of the under dash wiring, secured the turn signal switch wiring, installed the lower steering column cover, & ran the wire for the r/s dome light to the rear.

    Today I spent a few hours in the garage working on the turn signal switch wiring. I had to cut off the Ford plug & install new terminals & install them into the AAW supplied plug to mate up to their harness plug.

    Today I spent the day in the garage working on the wiring for the dash mounted parking brake warning light. I had to lengthen the wire going to the center mount parking brake warning switch, & add an inline fuse since the AAW harness doesn't have a connection for it. I am going to tap off one of the accessory terminals in the fuse box & mount the fuse holder by the relay pack, & the inertia switch.
