Here's some work I did on the factory harness to clean them up.
Below are the step I did with all the factory harness:
Next, I remove the factory plastic tubing:
Next, I taped them completely with harness tape (different than electrical tape you get at HD)
Lastly, I covered them with Russell's harness wrap.
Next came doing the harness that runs down the fender.
I felt no need to reinstall this plastic shield.
You can see all the crud that came out when I pulled the sheild.
Here the harness completed.
Well almost, I felt the connectors could use some help. Didn't much care for all the scratches on the fuse box lid either.
I used three different tones of black to keep it interesting.
repainted the lid, no more scratches and now the connectors......much better than purple, etc.
And after countless of hours of sanding, priming and painting. No more big Vararam Logo, no more cheap looking casting seem down the side and much nicer finish.
One last shot of a mock-up. You can see in this pic I painted the power steering cap. I also did the brake, radiator and water bottle caps.
Got these in the mail. Will be using them to replace all the fender and radiator core support. They are made by the AWESOME Ring Brothers.
Hope it inspired to get out into your garage
