Re: Painless Wiring

I hav'nt used one my self but i read a step by step artical in street machine a few years back when they put one in a kingswood. I would call it not so painful as you still have to use parts of your old loom like dash light,gauge /switchs and connecters and solder them to the painless one. they also had to modify the fuse block to fit the stock position even though the loom was suposed to be the correct one for that model car.

Re: Painless Wiring

No worries, that's kinda what I thought. The wiring is all over the place in the ute as it has had a lot of add ons over the years from the previous owner which he took out before selling it, so i figured it would probably be best to start fresh

I'd get the loom out of an XF and work out whether I could mount the XF column switches onto the XR column - if not, install the XF column as well, like I did on my ZC Fairlane

I have loads of info on using the XF loom if you are interested - it truly is a bolt in proposition.

Advantages:

Wiper switch on the column
Intermittent wipers (if you use the XF wiper motor)
Hazard lights
Headlight flasher
Steering lock (if you use the XF column)
