2nd Chance Camaro 2.0 - Cleaning Up the AAW Harness
2019 07-02 Update - Cleaning Up the AAW Harness


Okay now it's time for an actually update.

Reposting this pictures JIC we all forgot what the plan was.



Remove this junction block as it is not needed and it has to go. It's as simple as cutting and joining them back together.






I separated all of the wire so they all had there own Tech-Flex wrap and also shortened them as needed.



Don't worry I twisted these together just so i could get the lengths correct.



Man it sure would be nice if my table was a little bigger.



Left side is finally separated





Need to look at the wiring diagram to see where these wire go as the were not wired to anything in the car.



Yes I have issue and one of them is working in a somewhat clean & organized environment.



First set of wire wrapped in the Tech Flex loom.



Over the years I have learned a few things. Twist Ties, Wire Nuts and a good pair of wire strippers make big jobs easier.

I use the twist ties to keep all of the wires together that terminate at a common plug and wire nut keep the harness from flopping around on your work bench while you are soldering.

I pretty sure I have had these blue wire nuts for 30 years.



So I couldn't find my alligator clip thing for holding the wire so i found a new use for my vise grips.



I staggered all of the unions so I didn't have all the bulk in the center of the harness.



Everything is officially joined and resting on the floor.

On to the fun part joining all of the wires and installing heat shrink on each union.



Boy would it be nice to be working on a bench instead of the floor.

Need to fix this union.



Starting to look a little better.



Hours of work and this is all of the scrap I made



Calling it a night and plan to wrap it later in the week

2nd Chance Camaro 2.0 - DEI Sound Deadening
2019 06-25 Update - DEI Sound Deadening

Another, while I am here moment just happened.

Might as well add more sound deadening since the dash is already off.



It's nice having an Eastwood store 30 minutes from my house. A quick trip an to get some more sound deadening and possible stop at Baskin Robins for an Ice Cream Cone.



Good thing I save all of the boxes





Having the right tools helps. Just kidding this is one job that only takes a few tools and it's actually fun to do.

This is the split loom for existing harness's



I also ordered some Tessa Tape which is perfect of the engine bay wire harness.

2nd Chance Camaro 2.0 - AAW Tech Flex Wrap

2019 07-03 Update - AAW Tech Flex Wrap

So I have had this little table in my garage for at least year and I decided to pull it out and see if I could use it
in front of my workbench and what do you know it worked perfect.



okay close to perfect



Moving on to wrapping the harness with Tech Flex.





So before I wrapped up the main harness I slid a piece of heat shrink up the main section of the harness to hold it all together.



A few of the wires are not being used but I wanted to save them and also isolate them from any potential issues so I heat shrink wrapped each cut end.





Slowly but surely it is starting to look like a finished harness.







Getting closer



I also rerouted some of the section so that when I put the harness back in the car it lays exactly where
I would like it to lay.



so close





Once again all done for the night and now it's time to go for a ride.

Wiring terrifies me... I want the clean result but get lost trying to keep up with so many runs in different directions...
Thank you for sharing!!! ....and thank you for the laughs when I was fast scrolling through the pics and saw the wire nuts.... (because I have actually seen them used in cars before...)

I agree with you that wiring is terrifying and it took me a little bit to jump into this one as I new it was going to be very time consuming.

Wire Nuts - way back in the 80's I can remember people using them on car stereo systems.

In my quest to work on the car I decided that I would have the lower dash bracket powder coated for no reason other then personal because it is not like anyone will ever see it.





I also picked up some parts for the car from Midwest Hot Rods.





Since the headers are off and these where cheap I would install these exhaust port covers.



I need to make a few more holes so they would work.

Moving on to installing the harness and hope all of my planning pays off.

I plan to run the harness over the top of the steering column and secure it safely to the column mount.





so far so good



Picked up some needed parts from the local AutoZone. I used the door edge guard on the edges of the
steering column framework as I felt they could be a wear point for the harness.





Not sure why I always reverse the adell clamps but I just do and one day I will try to figure it out.



Okay so one wire needed to get pulled from the wrap and thankfully it was an easy fix.




Harness is in.



I even plugged in the cluster to make sure it worked. It did !!!









Calling it a night once again.
