Been working on a new wiring harness for about a month now. Took a long time but I think I did a good job. I just plugged in the steering column, hooked up the battery and started running circuits. Whole e crap everything works!!! I am kinda happy now. Also a big thanks to Nick (Nicks Tricks) for talking me through a few problems.

Just wanted to tell the world.

Not that I suspect I would have the nerve to do it myself, but did you happen to take pics along the way? Just curious as to what your process was.

I think if I can do electric anybody should be able to do it. I broke my job into 3 pieces and finished as I went. Started at the back with the lights and moved toward the dash. Then started again in the front and did the same. Then did the dash wiring. One wire at a time, do the one's you know and ask about the rest. It was a giant step for me, I was so freaked out about doing the wiring.

awesome...I completed my RF harness a few months back as well. It wasnt too bad at all and turned out great.

FYI...one thing I didnt do that I should have done was leave more slack at the switches behind the dash. My next wireing job will have enough slack so the switch can be taken loose from the dash and dropped down for easy access in case the need to replace.
