Soon we will get in all the new pins and start making the
Rust holes,...needs to be repair welded
the air beam system front left quarter
Wiring harness started
New catalog with newer electrical schematic pages
More parts bead
blasted, and etched primed
Breaking down the individual runs, identifying them, then documenting and
logging in the computer
Documenting and removing one harness at a time ..slowly but
It takes more time to document the wiring then it does to actually
remove it ..
This is called "BUS Archeology"
In some places the wiring
harness was installed, then they installed a wall or section ..
we have to disassemble the wiring harness within the chassis in sections ..
Not easy to remove but if we are careful enough it can be accomplished.
We are actually only
showing about half the images .
We will take a lot of images to make sure we document everything very carefully
for reassembly .
Today Tim and Dan worked on removing one of the last larger wire
harness's left .
Note how careful Tim needs to be so as not to damage the wiring.
We need these harness's to use as templates when we rebuild them
There are no accurate reference manuals...
More of the harnes removal
More of Tim removing that last harness..
No ,..That's not a
snake,.. if so,..It's a very expensive one ..
That's that last main harness coming out ..More to come but they are much
Rear Junction Box almost
ready to come out
Continuing to catalog
Slowly and slowly we
remove the wires,... one at a time,... mark them and then record them....
Removing wiring from
front junction box very carefully and
More Parts cleaned and painted
More wire documenting
Cataloging and Identifying all the wiring
