We could write an entire story on just wiring the cockpit and instrument panel—which took the entire fourth day. Your first mission is to remove the instrument panel, and check or replace all burned-out bulbs. Now’s the time to replace the old ignition switch, headlight switch, and the dimmer—which we got from YearOne. All these have independent terminal connectors that must be cut off of the OEM harness, and connected to the Painless harness. You’ll also need to salvage and connect the IP harness connector, steering column connector, heater/blower connector, high beam switch connector, and several others. With the new TCI Fast-Gate shifter, we also had to run wires for the neutral safety switch and reverse lights. Before attaching the IP to the dash, you’ll want to hook up the battery and do a full system check, including firing up the car. If everything works, you’re done!
