Looks like my wiring in the buggy. I can get everything to work I just cant seem to make the harness look like anything but vegetable spaghetti. Cool shrinky-dink! Haven't seen those since I was a kid.

I haven't posted any here since they changed. Maybe imageshack? Flikr? I've been busy with my Astro van's engine, that site hosts it's own gallery. (Spun a bearing in the V6, rebuilding a 350 to squeeze into it)
