Here is how the wiring looked when it was pulled in the shop. It's a bit of a tangled mess that would be overwhelming to most. It's a new aftermarket harness from Kwik Wire and over all, I really can't find any faults with it....at least yet.
So, at this point, the best thing to do is take it all out.
And there you go...
The issue that you can run into with an aftermarket harnesses is that usually there are several circuit that are not used. Most people simply coil the extra wire up and hide it under the dash. I beg you....please....don't do this. Take the extra circuits out. It takes no more that a couple of minutes and goes along way to keeping the wiring nice and tidy. Also, when you are laying out the the initial path of wires, use zip ties....but only to keep everything organized until you are ready to install the loom. I usually go through an entire packet of zip ties but when I am done, there are only a few left on the vehicle. They are cheap and make the job so much easier.
Well, it didn't take long to encounter the first problem. The fuse panel didn't have a mounting block and the wires stuck out the back of the panel about 3/4 of an inch. I bent a mounting bracket up out of some 18ga and was able to utilize the original fuse panel mounting holes.
