put some new fuses in the whole fuse box yesterday. Gonna make the whole lightning work and test everything thats OE plugged, then, ill jump onto the Holley.

i sold my HP last week and just ordered the New Terminator Max LS set up that Holley just released. Cashed on my HP and this thing at 999$ is killer and even has more input/output than my HP!! LOL!!

Is there a circuit in particuliar you need help with?

Thats how we did the 68. Thats how I do all my swaps I leave the chassis harness and factory fuse block all intact and isolate the engine with its own relay/fuse block. I did not partake in the actual under dash clean up of that build though but it was plug and play being factory. Is yours awol PSJ?

I bought new front and rear harnesses, and the under dash one they plug into as well. So I could potentially make it all work.

I'm hoping to also strip out wires I don't need from the front harness... alternator... etc

Ahh simple. Plug in the whole harness, run what you need to use and all the leftovers that dont have a home? Pull those pins out to clean it up and leave the rest. Should work fine

I decided to pull the OEM harnesses that I installed, and build one from a kit that I was suggested to get. My buddy Al will buy this stock stuff for his '67 vert flip car.

I got this, suggested by Brandon Doller the guy who built my sick board: https://www.ezwiring.com/product-pag...5R-KaY4v5dhDRA

That kit looks nice and easy. Good plan this way someone doing a real resto can mess with the OG tube fuses and you can have the new easy modern type

Yeah I was barely going to use the OEM wires seemed like a waste to to chop up the harnesses. Plus those stock glass fuses for a 8 (7?) second car... eesh.

Pulled front and rear factory harnesses, Will pull the interior one too after I take a few pictures.

We are continuing on with the wiring. Going to try making straps to mount the board too behind the glove box. Seems like the best way to have stuff accessible.

Wondering if aluminum or steel for the straps...?

im getting to laying out my wiring as well.

i seen a nice set up where the guy put his electrical system on a piano hinge. He screwed the hinge to his under dash bar and it was super sano. It made him able to (he used Dzeus fasteners at the other end of the hinged panel) un dzeus the panel letting it fall vertically under his dash when access is necessary. Very clean and well tought out. Thinking of doing similar.

dont know if i save a pic.

well check and show if i have it.

Edit, found it! Its on MIA’s White Mustang project on here. You surely seen it but ill send pics via pm.

...Stil wiring. Reason we are so slow, (1) I'm helping and doing some haha and (2) both me and my buddy been pretty busy.

Once we mount up the computer I'll post more pics, and the progress will pick up big time. I'm trying to get it crankable in the next week and a half.

Not sure if you need to read this or not but instinct compels me to share it so I hope you see this as a support gesture;


Install all sensors in position with plug and or pigtail. From the ECM run leads on wire at a time to the sensor plug, and the power feeds to the fuse box/relay and move onto the next. One wire at a time, through each sensor respectively. I like to use tie wraps and just keep bundling them over the main trunk as I go and then cut them all off after its completed while I wrap the harness with tape. Done many now, its tedious but not hard if you do it one wire at a time to its final resting place. If you utter or here the words "for now"? Thats a warning and time to stop for the day.

Terms like "good enough" are not to be used in these types of builds EVER imo. Nor is terms such as "I'll redo this better later"

Do it right, do it once.

JK we are chipping away at the wiring, have the power cables run, starter wires, just have to make some brackets for the computer board, and then hang that in the dash, then can plug everything thing else in.

I'm shooting to crank the car over in the next 10 days.
