I just made it to the garage. My wallet is only 200 dollars lighter. It's good to be the tire guy for a bunch of towing companies

Better than $1000 dollars lighter ...

Also good to find out what the problem was.

ECU? ABS? Data link? Not positive. Almost every connection is broken. Consulting the schematic is 50% helpful. There are a few rewires and non-OEM parts replacements I've discovered so far...

2:22AM...
The bus runs again.
It isn't pretty under there.
But, it runs.
That junction box will certainly be one of many electrical components that will be moved to the inside when I do my inverter setup...

Just for s&g, what is that corrugated thingie there? My guess would have been a shunt for an ammeter. Damn silly to leave it unprotected, even inside a closed box.

Exactly.
I was going to get around to finding out why the ammeter never worked. Now I don't have to.

Thinking about doing a "dropped" rear floor, like this:

Has anyone tried something like this?
