    One of the biggest thing i notice was most of the wires passed along the driver side of the car. So all of the rear tail lights wires and anything in the rear went under the door sill, through the back seat and into the trunk. From there it either passed throught the rear tail panel to the outside area or went to the lights inside the trunk.

    With the front, the wires passed through the firewall and routed along the driver side and around the front of the car when it came to the lights wires. Engine wires went along the engine side of the firewall and branched off where it needed to go.

    Under the dash it was routed along the cab side of the firewall and branched off where it needed to go.

    As for schematics, you can use the hanyes manual, the wiring diagram on this site's home page, and use the kit's wiring diagram.

    Be sure to route all wires where they won't get pinched and not exposed to unnesscary heat. Some time it can't be helped and you just keep it off the item that's hot.

    Also don't expect this to be done in a day, I mean this thread is proof of that!

    so this thread kinda dropped off the face of the earth. i was researching this kit and came across this thread.

    you ever get it running and everything working?

    this looks like the perfect thing for electrical dummies like us.

    Sorry , I'm never really in this section.
    I only researched this thread to link it to the 442 forum I'm a member of for another guy.

    Yes, it's 100% completed as of right around March 1st. I spent 3-4 weeks doing
    a custom rear LED tail light setup and finished that a few weeks ago too.
    Took me awhile because I kinda lolligagged

    Car is 100% functional with my LS1 / 4L60e and computer, etc.
    It's really a kit for dummies, it's really THAT simple to follow. 100x easier then a Painless kit.

    Aces... The car is 100% functional? :D

    I haven't noticed an "I finally drove it" thread yet.
    What's the hold up? (I forgot..... Interior stuff?)

    Being all over the news has taken him away from his camaro duties.

    Hell I fixed that 2 years ago ^ ^ :p
    I even finally hooked up the rear back up switch and neutral safety switches. :eek:

    Not the car itself. Just the electrical.
    Although today I discovered somehow my new Gentex mirror is always on and sucked my battery dry. :screwup:
    So now I have to go back and see where I sourced 12V from. Obviously the 12V hot at all times post was wrong.

    DOH!!!!!

    But yeah, I just drained my fuel lines today (bad gas), priming my fuel pump repeatedly
    til I got about a gallon out. Then I took off my fuel rail and shook all the gas out of it. Tomorrow the battery
    goes back in, and I will HOPEFULLY be able to start it now.

    All I have left to do is weld some bolts to my heater box to mount my PCM.
    Finish hooking up my MC and Booster and bleed the brakes.
    Then reinstall the interior. Everything is ready. Then I can drive it.

    THEN I'm going to get all new glass and PC all my trim molding too.
    I'm going to be driving it probably this weekend.

    Actually it's the opposite.

    We've been going out ALOT LESS to stay out of the limelight and risks of trouble.
    This is high profile time and we have to be Saints......so the Camaro is getting more attention now then ever :crazy:
