<- Extended every wire on the Driver side main wiring harness coming from the firewall all the way to the fusebox.

90+ wires but they're going bye bye soon.

I'm an OCD electrician, didnt look away quick enough, what an abortion! LOL, I bought a 67 Charger 10 years ago give or take and a "custom" guy had hacked the wiring harness so bad I had to replace EVERY harness in the whole car to get rid of short to ground problems!

Yeah it did suck! If you want it done right so you never have to worry about it again, solder all your connections and then use heat shrink tube on it to seal out the elements, takes way longer and is a huge pain, but worth it in the long run! I was raised by an electrician who specializes in control systems for nuclear power plants, sooo i'm a perfectionist where it comes to electrical work!
