I really like your attention to detail on this one. I've never really seen a nice S12 notchback before. The wiring looks like a scary job but I'm sure it'll end up as good as the rest of the car!

Yeah wiring is getting done by a friend of mine and its his first time doing a wire tuck. It is coming out really clean. The notches are not as common as far as people modifying them as much as the hatches. But for me i love my notch...i also have a 84 Turbo Hatch S12 as a daily driver.

I love the S12 cars and with the FJ20ET engine in it, it's fantastic! :tu:

Why do you strip the dash and remove the wiring?
