Just showing off some of the things I've been up to. I'm always looking for ways to improve our wiring work and have finally got some reliable sources for OEM terminals, wire seals, etc for Toyota connectors. This allows us to do wiring work with NO splices in the harness at all. It also allows us to build wiring harnesses completely from scratch, to OEM specifications.

A few pics for you. :)

Brand new connector housing, wire, wire seals, and terminals.

Here I'm wiring up a new ignition harness for a 2JZGTE.

Hey Doc, you ever look into the aircraft grade TechFlex with the flame retardant strip in it? That stuff is amazingly durable. Might be fun to play with. I use it in stereo wiring installs. It makes everything look pretty as well as providing a nice amount of abrasion resistance. :)

Just something I thought you might have fun with.

Yeah I've used it a few times, but was never happy with the final look. I actually have some still :)

Ah. So what didn't you like about it in particular? :) I'm just curious.

Well you have to use those heat-shears to get a good clean cut that doesn't fray apart, or hit it with a heat gun. The heavy duty rubber harness cover that you see in the pics above is SO much easier to work with and I really like the finished look.

Tweak is the man. I know where I'll be going when I break a wire off inside the connector again!
