So since the coating I put on the floor was now hard I went back into there. Near the beggining of the thread I showed a picture of the fuse panel that was dead. Along with that I had some other issues I needed to resolve and the best way to get them resolved was pull the cluster. OMG that was not an easy task since there are no main connectors on these instead you have 11 individual connectors and like 8 bulb connectors. But I did manage to get it out and took good notes for when it goes back in.







So I had 3 issues that I knew of at hand to take care of. The first was the washer pump. The car from the factory has a washerpump but it was not wired like so and had wires just ran to it and not using any of the factory pass thru connectors. I got the wiper switch undone from the dash and found this.







I dug out my multimeter and one of the books my dad gave me(I am spoiled with the wiring schematics I use daily at work compared to this old stuff). Well my hunch was correct on where I "thought" the washer feed wend thru the firewall. There are 2 main passthru's and one double wire passthru and the washer feed went thru there.







The stotchlock had damaged the wire so I nipped it and replaced that section of wire along with the trerminal in the switch connector.



And here is the dead fuel block---I threw that damn thing away.







I went and installed the blade style fuse panels I use on my custom wire jobs for my customers. The car also had nothing I could find in the way of power feeds for the stereo and instead somebody had ran a hot wire from the battery. So I went and ran 2 new circuits at the new fuse box for the stereo.







I still have to make a bracket so it can mount under the dash on the lip of the dash.

Got the new fuel and vacuum line installed







I also got the carb put on. My dad ordered a new chrome valve cover and Don has sand blasted the old one for me so I decided I to paint it just so I could remove the rags I had covering the the valve train and it just also looked better,lol.

So since I got the wiring taken care of under the dash I was able to get the wiring passthru's installed into the firewall.







So now that is done I can finally start to getting the engine bay wired back up again--my way...



Started with the passenger side harness since it was the easier of the 2.







Got my start..







And here is where I got after 10 tonight and finally ran outa steam.

My dad also finally picked the color he wanted. He sat there thumbing thru colors and this one just caught his eye--he LOVED it--going to be an eye catcher. So he went with Don and bought the needed amount along with primers/ect.

Ok I put in another late night and chomped thru more wiring and moving faster than I thought for doing more than I origionaly planned on. I was going to rework the stock stuff but tossed it and doing all new..



Here is the stock drivers side harness ready to be hacked up for needed ends.







Here is the passenger harness where it goes down for the temp/oil pressure and coil.







Passenger harness at the firewall behind motor.







How I decided to run the harness down under the blower motor.







To the main relay..

New drivers side harness. I chose to integrate the washer pump into the harness and will tie it in with a bullet connector to the pass thru above the main one.







New harness down the fenderwell











And across the core support.







So the mian harness is almost ran and then to the ends--making progress.



My dad also dropped off another load of parts--man he's getting excited and even more when I told him we are a lil over a week for it to go to the body guy.

Passenger side corner







Main relay done. I fused(fusable link) every power circuit. One thing that I have noticed one thing that was lacking.











And down to the alternator.







So the only thing left in the wiring is at the ignition coil, both battery cables, main ground and starter cable.



My dad had been watching the webcam everynight and I got a text close to 11:30 and he was in ahh over what was happening--talk about a good feeling.. Ok time for sleep..
