Dash Complete~Other pix

Like I said, it's not perfect, but it's not bad either.


Things that haunt me at night:

Saturday, July 2, 2011


For those of you who are friends with me on FB know
 I began rewiring my car last weekend.
This wasn't the short quick process I thought it would be. 
However, I blame my new found pursuit of perfection on this and I'm not really
 upset that it took this long. Tomorrow the dash will finally go back in. 

Here's a picture book of fun! 

 This is in the beginning when I first pulled the full chassis wiring:

Then mocking it all back up to see what I need, 
what I don't, and where things can be made shorter:

Unweaving the first wave of bonus wires:

About 5' of shortening:

Then I took things back to my place once the shop closed:

Just a few of the wires I pulled:

Once things were fully removed,
 I began to see how I wanted things ran:

Then I e-taped it all up:

S13 owners, can you believe this is all you need for the 
engine bay chassis harness?
Approximately 3 relays and 5 fuses.

I left a LOT of length in case things change in the future.
This is how it was all mocked up without everything in
it's new home. 

I actually couldn't help but drive it like this too, 
so check it out:

I thought this would be a good time to also redo the dashboard.
(I have never done any of this in my whole life)

(break time~went to the track, then to dinner, then to pool hall)

Are you supposed to prime these things? 
Oh well, I did.

Finally, some flat black before 4am when I was exhausted!

Then this morning I was up and at it again
 with gloss black and rainbow flakes!

Some of the molding/paint turned out better than other parts of it,
 but overall I think it was a pretty successful adventure!

By the way, I retained power windows and door locks.

Should have the installed pic up tomorrow! (=

Internet was down for a while since I was moving and all, 
but here's the coverage from this past weekend.
I know there is more, I just haven't come across it yet!!!


This picture was taken at the trophy presentation.
I qualified 4th and took 3rd on this particular weekend. 

Team Hinga & Friends took 1st, 3rd, and 4th. 
Congrats to Cornell Williams, myself, and big brother Danny D. Diaz.
 Looking forward to next comp!

So much motivation to get the car ready for the next event!
