Did you guys strip out the harness as well? It was fun to realize the design engineer figured they should run out to the front bumper on each side of the car. It'* like a long horseshoe that starts at one headlight, goes in, back out on the other side of car to that headlight, plus all the interior wiring.

Wow, that had to be a bear. I remember having to do those on some tracked vehicles in the Army, but they were a lot more accessible then a car.

That'* what you get for letting the Wachowski brothers design an octopus!

Actually, it looks like something you might get from Scotty if you gave him some acid and told him to whip up a plasma restrictor.

Wow- that had to be a B!TCH to remove!
I used to install ALL the wiring harnesses in the 60" New Flyer buses for New York City, and those buses were the swivel buses too. Not fun at all. Even better was when a bad harness was found AFTER the whole bus was put together and I was the chosen one for removing it.
Oh, well, it was good experience.

We'll say six hours total over the course of a few days. Probably would have been 50% longer without Bill to help with the wires in front of the firewall. The good news is that the whole harness need not be reinstalled. For the most part, the 90 harness will remain but I'm sure I will need some of the electronics to support the L67. If so, it can be installed as an add-on similar to an aftermarket product.

If Helm EVER SENDS ME THE MANUALS I ORDERED, I would have a better idea of what I'll need.
