          Dang Fred wish I could, I had a ball wiring mine. I'd love to help ya out. I just used an EZ Wiring generic 22 circuit kit. Each wire is marked every six inches where it goes. Still a little confusing some times, and wiring is what I do. Lots of splicing. I will say for most that want an easier way, those oem replacement harnesses from Classic look like nice pieces. Only down side, if it is one, they're so correct they still use the bulkhead connector.
          BTW I posted a few wiring pics on my build thread starting about post #350 if it helps.

            The wiring harness I'm looking at deletes the bulk head harness so will work good for me.
            Would enjoy your help for sure.

                  Mine must be 20 I guess there is a in dent in the spare tire compartment so to fit the tank. Not sure but had several people tell me that it is an option having a bigger tank in that year.

                  318 and 904 tranny. Dealer installed A/C but was gone when I bought it.
                  I wanted a Dart but found this one for sale with factory sun roof 340 410 gears and original paint and little rust so looked good to me.

                      you are a good man to have done a great job raising all those kids. I only have a boy and a girl and finished raising them after my wife was killed in auto accident at 39 years old back in 1993. I never remarried either. BTW you have a beautiful car that you are doing an awesome job on, Joe
