ya thats what i am thinking but is there a way to isolate the main wires that need to be kept and keep them in tact and routed into the fuse box?

new update...got the old wiring harness out while still keeping all my electronics i wanted to remain. for future reference on this subject...dont cut out anything you want to keep. i.e. i listened to a friend of mine and cut the head lights and the blinkers about two foot out, realized they would have worked after i made the big cut, so i had to rewire them back into the remaining harness. then i figured that i would use some common sense and just cut the main wiring harness that cut across the dash..and cut it off, capped it and taped it. bam still have all my head lights and blinkers, brake lights interior power everything i wanted to keep. have the old dash board ripped out and will be builiding my new one out of sheet metal starting this friday. now that the electrical part is out of the way, i will be tackling the dash with all my new gauges...

I was thinking of the "wispering sweet nothings into Dubs' ear" pic but the "murse" pic also works.

I looked back through all my g2g pics and didnt come across any of anyone holding hands. I did find a pic of Paul passed out at every event we've had though. -God bless us every one.
