Tony,

I noticed on the wiring for your LS that plastic fiber loom works best with a bit of heat shrink on each end to hold it in place and keep a lot of junk from getting down inside it. Also helps keep the wires from slipping out later down the road since its just a curl. Just an observation, like the progress

I agree and still may do that but the heat shrink would have to be like 3/4 inch id to get over the connections... does that make sense ?

They make a shrink "tape" where you wrap it like electrical tape then heat shrink it, its really nice stuff for areas where you havent cut the wires or arent making a harness from scratch.

Are you guys talking about 3m Scotch rubber splicing tape? We use that wrapping Burndy fittings. Also a Scotch liquid rubber brushed over that to make it weather proof but that gives it a slightly browned look.
