Getting closer to putting the dash back in. I ran most of the harness, have a few ends to sort out. I knew this was gonna happen, get towards the end and not remember exactly how the harness was run etc... i prepped the floor in the areas where the rust was found, it wasnt bad at all but it wasnt something i wanted to leave alone. i should be able to get that treated and covered this week. I have to flare the new brake line and install that, and then i should be able to button up the harness on the engine bay side. Trying to figure out how i can test this without putting everything back in the car. The gauge cluster's harness is in the dash, and ideally id like that to be connected for the test. I guess i could remove it from the dash.
i also plan to have the heater core swapped out and connected up for the test. its probably a bad idea to have open coolant lines with the car running. Its getting there, i've already fully accepted that this car wont be ready til the fall so with that in mind, i think its a doable goal and i wont kill myself or sacrifice family time trying to meet some ridiculous deadline i set myself.
