In the plastic under floor wiring protector sleeve, add a few 12 & 14 gauge wires from the dash to the trunk. You never know what you'll need in the future and you won't have to pull out the seats and carpet to add wires.
Thanks for the tip about the windows, and I was planning on pre-wiring for an electric fuel pump and probably a trunk actuator.

Let me know if you would like a picture of the fuse panel and I will upload it tomorrow sometime. Here in the future I will probably rip out the harness I have now and start from scratch, but for now I don't have the patience...

A Picture would be great thank you.

As of the moment I am leaning toward the Painless harness because it has the extra circuits I want, still doing research though. Also it is looking like the gauges I want wont be available till June so that is going to slow things down a little but more time to save up some cash.
