So, I'm tearing into the interior of my Fiero... it's totally gutted, and I'm adding Performance Sound, upgrading to power mirrors, and re-wiring the power door locks correctly... and I notice something...
I've had this car for about ~15 years now... installed power door locks way back in 1998. I also installed a nicer stereo, but at least had the common sense not to trash the factory wiring. So I'm looking at all of my handywork, and I'm literally apauled by what I did back in the day. I know that I didn't know a damn thing about cars back then, but holy crap... I've never seen such a **** -job every done before in my life... and to think it was me that did it, is down-right emberassing. Somehow... my power door locks managed to work the past 10+ years. The wiring is horrendous. It's like I used whatever I could find to wire it all together. I've counted so far, about 12 of those piggy-back clips that dig into a wiring harness so you can attach a wire onto it.
Man... I'd post a picture of the mountain of crap wires I pulled out of the car, but I'd be too emberassed. I notice however that the factory didn't do a totally awesome job either in some places. There's places that you can tell a wiring harness was SUPPOSED to go through, but they decided instead to route it another way...
