Got a little more done today. It's beginning to resemble a bus again... Motivation is low right due to needing to get all the wiring and the dash back in place. Wiring is NOT my favorite task to complete.......

Well, I bit the bullet today and began the PITA task of straightening the following mess: .................




at least I had the forethought to tag every wire. I did realize that I will need to replace the majority of the wire spade plugs. The few I began with were quite brittle.

Sorry for the slow response. Between my mom and dad having some health issues and working OT because of weather, I haven't gotten much farther other than preparing the gauges and dash for installation. Hope to make some progress in the next week.
