98 SV70/01 V70 (850?): Ask me for wiring advice, walkthrough, details

Post by CIK7 » Sat Oct 26, 2019 8:06 pm

Not sure if wiring for 850 is similar to SV70. But if you need wiring advice, walkthrough, details, please ask here. Seems that a lot of people don't know about auto wiring and may have difficulty with it. As you can see below, I have a 98 v70 xc and have had an 01 v70. If you need help with wiring such as where to cut, how to modify, what wires are which, I might be able to help. I'm the kind of guy that gets down to the details of a wiring project. On my 98, I've rewired the brittle cracked wires and broken connectors for my headlight bulb harnesses, modified the under-dash harness that powers the dome lights, cut/wired in LED light strip in driver footwell. I did a LOT of wire work on my 01 V70. Current project is making my SPARE 98 V70 seats into house chairs.
If you need help with some wiring, PLEASE ASK HERE.
