So I haven't totally disappeared. I did ignore the car for a while again mostly because the entire harness building thing is so much of a learning curve that I haven't had time to get into with work being crazy and getting moved into another new position there.
But! I had a friend come over and start on the harness just doing a bit of work a few nights a week. The engine bay side is mostly done but I'm waiting on my bulkhead connector to finish it off. Unfortunately my Passport and almost new Galaxy S5 were stolen last time I was in Detroit picking parts up so I can't make it back across to pick any parts up anytime soon.
Bought some more wiring supplies as well. This has been an interesting learning process that's for sure! The goal is to have everything loomed nicely with new terminals crimped on as much as possible and no electrical tape being used anywhere because it's gross. So braided loom, heat shrink, and DEI Fire Tape are the only things being used to wrap the harness. It's turning out really nicely
Cam sensor, TPS, IAC, and IAT. Could've hid the IAT a little better but oh well; that's part of the learning process lol
Here's a pic of that first harness, the injector harness, and fan harness.
The fan harness will join with the crank sensor harness along the frame rail on the passenger side where they'll run up to the bulkhead together.
All the fan wiring is staying tucked underneath to keep things looking clean
All the wires are run up to the point the bulkhead will go through the firewall. Once the IM is back on and it's finalized w/ the bulkhead almost all the wires will be hidden
Starter and alternator still need to be wired but I was just waiting on some thicker gauge wire for that so hopefully that'll happen tonight or this weekend. Also need to figure out the coilpack wiring and get that done.
All the chassis wiring will be OEM except for what needs to be extended to hide the headlight wiring, etc. Going to be moving the main fusebox under the dash as well.
