    Default Best option for wiring up engine

    Hey guys,

    I am looking for some advice on the best option/shop to take my car to get wired up.

    This isn't my first car build but it is my first 86 build.

    Car is an ADM AE86 (had a 4AC in it which previous owner removed to put in a 3S-GTE which never happened) with a converted front end. All of the interior wiring and a bit of the lighting has been done by the previous owner (Trueno converted front). I have recently dropped in a 4AGE smallport/T50 box which needs wiring up. I have never been any good at wiring and want to make sure the car is done right. It requires the ADM body loom to be splined into the engine loom. I do have a couple fuse boxes (one came with the engine, one is from the previous 4AC engine I think). Also the fuel tank has been switched from the carby setup to the JDM in tank pump setup. Most of the wiring leads to the engine bay but most of it has been cut so I am not sure what is what... One good point is that the guy I bought the engine from labeled most of the loom although it looks like the battery connection points have been chopped off it.

    What I think is already wired up:

    Taillights
    Wiring for old fuel tank setup
    Interior lights
    Dash and controls
    Headlights (pop up)


    What needs to be done:

    Front indicators
    New fuel tank
    Engine
    Body splined into engine/ECU

    I also need the 8mm EFI hardline so I can hook up the fuel tank but I can't seem to find one anywhere. Has anyone just taken off one of the 6mm pipes and had someone bend a new pipe to the shape?

    If anyone can recommend someone or a good shop in the ACT it would be much appreciated.

    Have a talk to Jo at Moonlight Garage (MaxHag on this forum)

    He is a bit of a guru, it will probably mostly depend on how much work Moonlight already has booked and the timeframe you need the car done in...
