Re: OT Gutting Wiring Harnesses
I'm not asking what i can take out but how to do a "clean" job of it.
I don't plan on taking anything engine wise out besides the egr, i even ordred a gm block off plate today at work when i was bored since gm lists one for the 4.3. I don't know if i'd call it broke but now that i've cut off the front clip and am not using the head lights, ac, heat, horn, cruise, power locks/windows (truck has manual doors on it now), factory dash/ cluster, courtsey lights, abs and i'm sure i'm forgetting other things. There's lot of connectors that don't go to anything that look tacky and are just waiting to cuase problems. There's tons of wires that can come out and that engine compartment is so cramped it will help to get rid of everything i can. I have plenty of time right now working from 9-4 with nothing to do at night besides work in my shop since all my buddies are home for break.
It's not costing me much and i might as well do it right while i'm stalled wating for frontend parts. I also wanted to make a new dash/ heater setup/ gauages and swtiches since the factory stuff is cobbed and cobbing stuff together isn't the way to do it. It's starting to bug me when my stuff is 1/2 assed and I know i'm the one that 1/2 assed it and i should do it right.
