Yes I did. These things are fantastic. I just need a hotter heat gun I suspect. Everything shrinks, but the center ring. And it only slightly collapses on one side. Suspect I need a larger blast with hotter air to do it quickly and efficiently.
Yes, The solder ring is designed to melt at around 350-400*. Your gun may work but it might need a shield to heat the sleeve properly.
You can make a shield that looks like this:
or this: (this is what mine looks like and it works great)

Yeah, I have one somewhere that looks like the first one. I need to find it.
Also, jrwgt, your harness is packed, I am headed out the door to the Post Office to ship it. You should see it in a few days. Any feedback is appreciated. I will start the remaining harnesses after I have feedback.
Edit: Scratch that... Forgot it was Good Friday... Will hunt down a UPS store, or ship tomorrow.

Harnesses arrived via USPS today! That was quick. They look great and will save me a lot of time. Wire lengths look good. Will probably be the weekend before I can do much with them.
That is fine. I have the next 3-4 Tier2/3 harnesses roughed, but I am sure people won't mind if I hold them as-is until you have fitted and given feedback. Again, call me while installing if you need anything. The ring terminal on the power harness is a bit small I realized. I have increased that size on the newer harnesses.
Updates: I could not delay anymore for measurement input. I have two additional harnesses in progress, and this will catch me up with the exception of Nashco.
Harness Waiting List:
1. jrwgt - T3 FMB - PAID - Shipped and received Still waiting on Input on this one. 2. Macs86GT - T3 FMB - PAID - In Progress 3. PS87GT - T3 FMB - PAID - In Progress 4. Nashco - T2 RMB NoH4 - PAID - on hold 5. Sphynx - T3 6. randye - T3 7. mikejhjr - T1 8. LeeLoo88 - T2 RMB 9. Typetooslow - T1

No worries here Synthesis. I know its something you do on the side not a full time job. I would rather see you get em done right and not burn yourself out doing so depriving others of the product. When i get mine installed ill see if i can get some measurement and fitment pics and dimensions.
Synthesis sorry for the delay in letting you know how things fit. The length appears to be just fine and I see no reason why it should not fit the same as it did on yours. I just got back from a 10 day road trip to Kansas City (work related) and was just now able to check the fit under the hood.
The only thing I will do is add a bit more tape or heat shrink around some of the joints of the flex.
I finally finished the next two harnesses. I stole a pair of crimpers from the shop I moonlight at. lol
PMs have been sent, then I will be building Nashco's harness, and any others for individuals who have paid.
I have also received a request to build an H4 to H4 headlight harness upgrade that will provide the same advantages as the Fiero1Fan upgrade, but for the stock H4 bulbs.
Yes, this harness will even help with the stock lamps and the light output. I will be using Ceramic H4 female connectors for the headlamp connections. The ceramic are longer lasting, more durable, and less prone to damage from heat. They come with a plastic sleeve that goes over the outside for protection and appearance.
I am able to build this style harness for the same price as a Tier 3. This will NOT turn both high and low on at the same time.
Cool, I could actually use mine soon. What's the timeline on the H9 connectors? Thanks!
I just need to get yours onto the harness, and then loom it.
That will do it for my existing stock of H9 connectors, and will need to re-order. Checking my history, Larry Nakamura was the last one to pay in, so that will catch me up on paid harnesses, and then I can order more connectors. Monday, I need to call my local supplier and get some brackets shipped to me. They are the metal relay clips that allow you to mount the relays to the car. I ran out of stock on them, and need to get more before I can ship your harness Nashco.
Bump to the top.. Ordered the remainder of my supplies today to get these finished. I was shorted a few pieces on the seals for the H9 connectors, so I ordered extras of those from the supplier, along with new terminals and connector housings.
I will be going to pick up the mounting brackets, among other things for the relays at Noon.
My revision for the power harness for Front/Rear mount batteries will help simplify construction, and allow me to box and ship orders much more quickly.
Front mount batteries feature two fuse holders and two power leads connected to a single ring terminal for connection to the battery. The power harness ends in a 2 position weather sealed connector. The rear mount harness was the same setup, only much longer. The new design will feature the FMB power harness as usual, the RMB harness will be an addon length of wire with connectors at both ends. Simple extend the harness the length of the vehicle underneath, and plug it in. This way, I can just pick parts off the shelf and ship.
Got my harness a few days ago, just had some computer related issues preventing me from posting. It looks great, btw synthesis does that harness just plug in to the fiero's stock headlight harness on one side then the rest is handled by the harness im guessing?
Yep. You route battery power using the fused harness, plug it into the front harness, and then connect the H4 headlamp connection to it.
You received the version 1 harness. The relays on yours mount to the inner fender panel on the driver's side next to the headlight. When mounted and routed, the harness will lay on top of the existing harness, and route behind the headlamp doors.
I need someone who can document a complete photo shoot of the install on the harnesses in order to get a "manual" drawn up.
