I'm sure everyone has done this so does anyone have install pics of PS lines. In trying to figure out where on the rack they run to. Pretty sure I followed them both down to the right spots but I can't get at the low pressure lines bolt. Any help please

If you do this what do you end up extending? I don't care about the alternator stuff or any of the easy things. I just want to stay away from anything engine harness related extending.

I am about to fly down there to handle it and get my stuff back. I don't think I have a choice, I have been getting lied to almost daily for months now. Otherwise the car is totaled.

This is how the car has been for the past 3.5 months now

Chase (chasebays) is local to me, hes moved shops 3 times in the last couple of yrs that i know of... Every time I've bought stuff from him, been cash on pickup... harnesses, made within a couple of days. But i did have wiring issues on a ls1 harness. Had to repin alot of the connectors.

Putting my fuse box in the steering column area only light wires needed to be extended, besides alternator stuff. No engine harness stuff.

Extended wires, 04 STi.



Not too bad.

Nice. Thanks for posting that. Extending some headlight wires (especially that many) is nothing. The way I have it now I was going to have to extend the alternator stuff anyway.

Looks like the fender is coming back off.

Yup, it's easy.

I de-pinned the fuse box wires, one at a time, and fed them through to the inside of the car. Then after feeding them you can decide which ones need extending.

Process of elimination of sorts.

You wouldnt happen to know what wire colors etc? I have a 04 Sti and this would help me out a ton with bringing the fuse box into the interior.

I don't know what each wire does if that's what you're asking.

Take off the fender. Remove grommet from wall that goes into car. Undo the connections from the fuse box. Then de-pin each wire and feed it through grommet one at a time. Plug in each wire you've de-pinned right after you moved it through the grommet.

Eventually you'll have transfered the connector piece through the grommet without tearing the grommet open to get the connectors through. Time consuming! But it works.

Best I can explain it without having pics.

This is going to go much better than the way I had it before. Fuse box inside. Engine harness I'll hack a hole in the firewall. Also figured I'll run my headlight harness on the other side in the bumper so that's hidden too. And the washer bottle fits perfectly inside the bumper. No more running wires for that thing.

No, basically I was asking if you could post which wires you extended. For example:

Purple w/ white stripe
Red w/ Yellow Stripe
Green w/ Blue Stripe

Etc.

Yep. Exactly. Once you lay it out it is really obvious which ones will still be in the fender and need to be lengthened.
