So I didn't like how my previous wiring was done...the car used to be my daily driver (technically it still is, but since I'm now working from home, I depend much less on the car) so most of the wiring was done in hurry to get the car back on the road.

I have lots of sensors and dataloggers on it:

Innovate LM-1
Innovate LMA-2
Innovate LMA-3
4x LC-1
Innovate SSI-4 (and I need another couple of these to get everything in)
Innovate TC-4
Innovate DL-32

So yeah, wiring was a bitch. I took them all off the car, and started modding them, grouping them in boxes, redoing the wiring in the car, using positive lock circular connectors everywhere. So after measuring, soldering, drilling, cutting and swearing, they are ready. Result:

Left to right:
1) MS2 w/VVT controller, my expansion board and Boris' KnockSenseMS inside it
2) My junction box (From MS2 to engine bay and dataloggers)
3) LM-1 and LMA-2
4) TC4, SSI-4 and DL-32

Not pictured is the LMA-3, which sits on the fuel tank lid, and will probably stay there.

It's one of those moments where you ask yourself, do I really need to put these back in the car?

LMA-3, will move it inside an aluminum case like the other dataloggers and add another SSI-4 as I have a bunch of channels to add there.
