Nope... Friend from my old work/race team/shop/whatever.

He does race trucks and buggies all the time and does amazing work. Just the wires that go around the gauges and the split loom where needed.... love it

I cant either... i should have taken pics of the hack job wiring before.

The lights were stealing power off of the ignition switch. The starter/ignition/fuel pump and lights were all run off of one fuse. There were no relays at all, multiple splices all over the place.

There is a tupperware with a fuse block and relay panel all mounted nicely right next to the battery with a ground cutoff. I cant wait to drive it this weekend.

300 doesnt even cover the parts.

I'll be about 800 into the wiring/electrical and gauges when i am done, which includes all the connectors, switches, fuel pressure gauge, oil temp, volt and rpm.
