Cleaning the harness up







Been a while since I’ve updated. Been super busy and haven’t made a ton of lead way. Hopefully the summer is more fruitful. Almost have the brake fully done, still waiting on some odds and ins. Motor rebuild will start within the next 2 months hopefully.

yea man a clean rewrap and tuck. Will most likely have to do some cutting and extending of certain wires for alternator etc. Pass that bridge when I get there😂

Tom, Thanks a ton man, thats what i have prided myself on with this build. Well yes it will be a front bumper off job. I dont have any updated pics on here yet but it was directly under the front support where the hood latch goes but do to the way my v-mount will be setup its gonna have to sit up front. There was no other good place other than inside the cabin which would have required the while harness to be cut shortened etc. Gonna run quick latch fasteners for the bumper so shouldn't be too bad.

Honestly, wow. This is fantastic. Seeing the first picture of how the car was found to where it is now is one heck of a transformation! The quality of parts going into this thing is unreal. I wish i had the means to make mine as nice as this (a garage would be nice too, but Okinawa ). Wonderful work, man. Maybe in a couple years I can see it at Daikoku when I move on up to Fuji. Looking forward to that!

Thanks a ton man! I have really tried to get the best I could possibly afford on the car without going completely overboard track car with it. Having the car in a garage has been a life saver, itís actually my buddies garage, (red rx7). I wish I could get the car down to daikoku. Itís 10hrs from where Iím at and I know you know the price of travel here in japan. On top of that no jci and it def wonít pass anymore. I do want to get it down to 7ís day this year before we head back to the states in September. Will see how everything goes.
