SwerveMonkey's Street Goblin - 08 Donor

We use spiral wrap at work a bit for fiber optics. Its great for organization and reentry being able to see whats in it is a huge bonus. It doesn't do much to protect the cable or wire in it from sunlight, liquids or gas. We use it in an already sealed environment like cases and closures.
 
ok, this is primarily a check in post. I thinned out the main harness and now will begin organizing things... BUT,

I have an nagging feeling that somewhere along the line I might have made a mistake or snipped something I shouldn't have.
as mentioned in a previous post I have the photo to edit and label in Photoshop what comes out in the process for my own edification.

Big thanks to BAR-AIR for the notes he posted over in his own build log
&
Also a shout-out to BradR for his work in progress google docs sheet on the connectors for the Goblin harness.
I'll reference those moving forward to do sanity checks to make sure I still have all the wiring sorted.

they say this is the hardest part, as they say around my job " keep your head down and power through "

Happy New Year everyone!
 
Moved on to the body to dash connector labeling... found that i had cut the key lock actuator wire (B10 green/white)...

Not entirely sure i need this, ill have to research if this is mentioned anywhere or if this can be omitted. Thoughts?

Edit... also not sure where the coolant level wire is located... have to find which connector that is sourced from...

so having looked a bit for a wiring harness diagram for the goblin, with no luck aside from BAR's notes [mentioned in posts 62 here]... I wanted something to really be able to pin point which connectors have what on them... thus i started a diagram of my own... <here> is the link. it is a draw.io page using flow chart software. IDK if i am re-inventing the wheel here or just edifying my own obsessiveness, albeit it may be a useful too later on.

i am finding more and more stuff that sort of deviates from the instructional video and I want to be certain of whether i screwed up or there is acutally a difference in the donor i have.
 
I kinda started something similar
Yessir! thanks for starting that up, I noted your work earlier (post #62) and have been peeking at it for a couple weeks now.
my main thing at this point is trying to figure out which sorta minimal feature donor car i got lucky with :p

a couple hurdles, although minor, i have come up against in the wiring portion:
  • Donor was PZEV, so the fuel filter and fuel pump were located inside the fuel tank under the car
  • I snipped a bit too much when following the video guide (myfault, D'Oh) and missing having things labeled
  • Finding that there was a second video series that was more akin to what i was working with (again, D'Oh)


EDIT: update on wiring diagram... settled on color scheme and have gone through most of the fuse box and BCM plugs

I really should check in with the guys @ DF to talk about how to approach a PZEV donor, but I have yet to hit a dead end and or the need to call out for help...

for everyone else, who has a PZEV, there is a fuel pump harness for the lowest price [i could find] online with NAPA.

part # DFP FA10003

That is it. I think that is the one that I used. I may of gotten it from ebay since I think mine had all grey wires on it
 
so I have gotten the fuel pump soldered in and the ambient air sensor as well. both of which have excess length that can be trimmed later.
the video mentions having a light blue wire from earlier in the thinning process.... however, my light blue cable looks much lighter than what appears in the video guide... oh well... heavy gauge shouldn't be really critical i guess for a radiator fan
data wires extension has been integrated
now the data wires are extended by a tan brown pair... tn
tan-> tan
tan/brown -> brown

Um, heavy gauge wire is more important than the color... find any heavy wire, or cut the cord off your extension cord.
Just a thought, Mr. Fox.
 
sourced new 14 gauge wire ( dark blue ) from auto parts store... [pics later]
currently trying to sort out the lighting solution associated with the brown wires...
I cannot located all the wires that are supposed to be draped over the fuse box [at work right now, so couldn't point them out]

wanted to put in this post that the color coding for the wiring diagram for the LS donor is coming along nicely...

I am in the process of holding off moving forward in the harness wrapping until I can confirm each and every wire from one connection until the other...

not sure if I should push forward with the wiring harness guide and verify as I go or if I should verify evertyhing now and complete the harness after.
