Default Can you make my wiring harness for $?

Yes, i am very scared of all things related to my cars wiring harness. Anyways my mechanic friend has been flaky lately and i need to have my project car finished in the month. I have an 83 242 turbo with a b230f+t......has 2.2 on it but theres a bad connection from the previous swap and i would like to find someone who can do a very clean swap.... i am willing to pay pretty damn well for this and alot of it will have to do with how much work is put in....anyways if ur up for the job let me know the car is located in the portland/tigard/tualatin area. If you need some extra cash or just wanna help me out let me know quick please!

heres the car:

Its actually really really easy to do. heck i did mine.

i went to a JY and found an 88 240 and pulled the harness out of it. when you do that look at which plugs go where and label them. when you get home pull your old one out and put the new one in in its place, its not that bad.

wait..... your engine bay is all not in the right place........ NM guess a stock harness wouldn't work then eh?

I'd love to help you, but I'm trying to figure out the wiring changes for my 2.2 to 2.4 upgrade I'm doing to my 89 744 race car. Plus I got the kid a bunch. Now it seems I have to do a motor swap on the magic bus, the real one, Further, for a gig it needs to go to on Aug 2nd. Susposedly they got 5k for me to do it, so I'll buy a rebuilt motor and slap it in and pocket the rest or just buy more bling with it.

Simon
