Hehehehe don't worry I ain't gonna have everything ready by May anyways. Not changing the wiring until I can afford to put the sound system in at the same time.

I'll tell you, getting that dash off was a real chore. Then Steve sat there on the ground for a while getting it out. But that was nothing compared to pulling the main body harness. Wow, it was everywhere.

My hands feel like they got that many miles on them, and my back.

The carcass should be picked up on Thursday. I'll have to go over it and make sure there'* nothing I want.

Main harnesses usually stretch from headlight to taillights in my experience. It'* a blast to lay it out and see how long they are.

Looks like a lot got done. Great job guys..
