Re: Project Lex

Car is getting close. Unfortunately this PnP harness has been not so PnP.
- Wrong Alternator Plug
- Wrong TB Plug
- Wrong Starter Plug
- Wrong coolant sensor plug
- Coolant sensor plugs routed to wrong side of engine (GTE is exh side but GE is int side)
- Starter wire pinned incorrectly where it plugs into chassis harness
- TB plug wired incorrectly (working through that currently).

So on Monday Brett/FenFab worked with the remote tuner Vlad to check things out. They planned to start the car. Everything seemed to check out with the exception of the TB. Something isn't wired correctly there so they are working through that. Hopefully get it started soon.

I'm setting up a plan to drive back on Friday next week to bring it home. So pretty pumped about that.

In the mean time, I had shattered my new front poly lip loading it on the trailer on the way out there. So I bought another one. But I can't keep paying $200-$300 to have these damn things painted if I just keep breaking them. So I decided to try wrapping for the hell of it. Picked up some Vvivid CF wrap for $30. It's not perfect, but for my first time ever wrapping I'm actually quite pleased. And way better than spending money on painting it again!
