Had my oldest crotch fruit with me this afternoon.

"We" go the passenger side out and the accessory drive and clutch linkage stopped us from getting the driver's side out today.

Also ordered a set of the sport series Bilsteins that will be here Friday.

Whoever wired this care previously should be fucking shot. Nothing was crimped or soldered together. Everything was just twisted and taped over for the starting circuit, I'm very surprised that it was operational but I can't leave it like that. So now I open this can of worms..

Yikes, I bought all my gel wiring from crimpzone. They have txl if you’re looking for that weight savings.

I ended up repinning the whole engine harness in the fuse block and it wasn’t bad. Got the connectors on Amazon if you want a link (assuming they’re the same which I’d guess so)

I'm fully prepared just to get a painless harness and stuff if needed but right now I just want to make it through the season with what we have. I just don't want it to lay on fire and melt down, although it is insured for a good amount

I’d go American auto wire over painless.
I honestly think I'll just buy a pin kit and spools of wire and go to town on the body harness so I just use what is needed, I don't need everything. The car is a stripped car.. And if I end up putting fuel injection on it then that will be stand alone

Their pricing is good and they’ve got a good amount of colors
I appreciate it, I'm going to keep it in mind when I place an order but for right now I'm just going through my wire scrapping to make everything work and not ignite itself and burn down a $90,000 car. Lol
