    Gordo, I buy everything through Milspecwiring.com. They are a division of MoTeC USA. I have nothing but good things to say about them. Great tech support. They are pricey and shipping is usually ground and is kind of expensive.

    i couldnt imagine someone spending 15k on a paint job either lol. most paint jobs can be done between 300 bucks and a couple grand if you do it yourself...time, quality, ingenuity are all factors...this is setting aside how much quality tools are, but painting can be done for inexpensive. and honestly anyone can shoot single stage and make it look decent...at least its one colour and getting runs is hard to do. 300 bucks would be absolute bottom of the barrel and have all supplies just sitting there...and the cheapest paint known to man. the average job can be done for sub 1k and a solid weekend...thought everything in USA seems to cost less than canada, so the number is arbitrary.

    Do you have a good source of multi-color mil-spec wire ? Planning ahead for when I do my Infinity.

    Agreed with Whoremouth. I love wiring. It comes so easily to me because I do it for a living on commercial aircraft. Most people are looking at wiring the way I look at bodywork. You all will get mad, but I've probably spent 4k on my wiring for this car easy. Don't care how dumb wiring seems to everyone else. I don't really understand why someone would drop 15k to paint a car, but whatever makes people happy
  7. Fuck, 10mm ? Would never clear my rear rims, I may have a whole 3mm between my wheel lip, and my coil-overs now.

    Guessing you all didn't take enough LSD when you were kids, I can see them just fine. Wait, you are mostly kids anyway, what am I talking about ? Can you not hear all the voices in my head neither ? Calling Brian, what the fuck is happening with this 'New & Improved' forum ??

    @LUMBERZACK Most likely isn't working because it looks like you have the photobucket "fix" addon running and gordo is posting photobucket links that should work. They also aren't working for me and I was running that plug-in too, but removing the plugin didn't fix the issue for me lol

    Who are we joking we are all delusional with our plans/intensions. I know for me I had one thing in mind when I started. One thing led to another, led to another led to 2 years and something that I no longer want to drive how I intended because I'm too pussy to smash it. Wiring is something that you shouldn't go through more than once on purpose. To me it's one of 2 solutions: adapt OEM, or new harness. "Refresh harness" with no mill spec? You are spending all that time making a new harness why stop going all out there for a couple hours of extra work on top of the several hours new harnesses take. I don't know shit about making a brand new harness (always want to but NoBalls) but just adapting harnesses takes several hours to do it in a non-sloppy/semi clean way. At least those cool round connectors allow for easy add ins in the event of going stand alone. Wiring is something Boris enjoys more than most, so it's given he'll probably be willing to above most to be happy with his product in that sense. We all be nit pickin

    You can run JZX100 rear arm's they are 10mm shorter so will give you camber, but if you buy adjustable ones you can sort it all out with arms and shit.

    I wouldn't say I'm all in this camp. My Cressida wiring is the bane of my life, but it's a car now and will be fully redone. I also own a bunch of cars that I can take my time on and I do small tasks and then finish up. I'm the first to admit I'm shit at a bunch of car stuff. My comment is that there's a ton of half start no finish tasks. Paint engine bay, fuck ya dude, go for it. But it still has open filler and then he's working on motor stuff and now wiring. I'm all for doing it right..or as close to the first time, and not jump some wires just to get it going...like my cars' previous owner, but why wouldn't you want to enjoy the car, at least in some small capacity? Do a refresh wire loom, no mil spec, fit the motor, mock up pipes and shit, pull motor, clean up engine bay and paint, throw back in, reassemble, start and go. Add more mods as you go along and money allows. L Maybe it's just the exposed filler for ages and then getting dirt and grease in the filler, I mean, even prime the bare bits.

    Kinda contradictory no? You say you're a one and done guy, but you're sticking with the twins until you go single down the road. Look I'm not knocking you for the type of person you are, the point I was trying to get across is what is your reasoning for reworking the stock harness and making it nice if you're going to tear it back apart to eliminate connectors once you go single. Rework seems contradictory to your "do it once do it right" life motto. Just trying to save you a month on your three year project so you don't end up like Gordo with a fabrication masterpiece you never drive.

    I mentioned somewhere earlier in my thread that I wanted to get the car looking as good as possible and get as much stuff out of the way to make my big single build easier when I eventually get to it. Instead of a clean engine bay, I should have just sloppily repinned/crimped some power wires, thrown in an uncomfortably stiff single clutch, bought shitty wheels, done no brake upgrades and called it a day. You know how hard it's going to be for me to go big single now that I've done all this work? It's not. The bay will be done, I will only have to pull out excess wires from the connectors that I won't use. Yes, it's a dumb amount of work, but I'm a "while you're there", "one and done" kind of guy. I'm not a "work out the kinks as you go" kind of guy. Shoot me for it.

    What is wrong with my pictures? Are you trying to read the forum on a cell phone? Never mind the fact that you are all crying about getting shit on your engine using a pop-rivet on hood vent that looks like it was meant for a house AC inlet, and I post one that is available here that doesn't.

    So you are saying: "I can throw shit together, with zip ties, duct tape, and split wire loom, why can't everyone" Not that either of you are in the zip-tie category, but just a little bit closed minded toward what other people want to do with their ride.

    Brian revamped the image uploading interface, now old man Gordo can't properly post a picture. What a time to be alive.

    He's currently neck deep in the rabbit hole of overbuilding his stock JZ swap. Normally I would commend this much work, but to know that you're completely redoing your harness with milspec connectors, yet still running factory ECU and twins is kinda strange unless you never plan on going single turbo or standalone. I just foresee you doing this work all over again. Just wrap up what you're doing and work out the kinks as you go lol.

    Why is this project so needlessly complicated? I did the quickest sanding putty work ever on the s13 and took zero time to block finish or even check everything and still looks 87% sick as before. Throw a sticky pad on a da sander and then give a quick scuff by hand then blow and wipe down and then shoot primer all over then single stage
