Extrudabody EFI setup

Spent this morning testing some of my new wiring. Because I'm paranoid I'm using an AC/DC transformer 12V, 1.5A ouput) to light up the new harness.

In 98 I went through the suspension and replaced all the rubber bushings with poly ones, rebuilt the kingpins, brakes, steering rack and replaced all the rubber around...
