Thanks for the input,
You'll probably do much better than I did

My biggest issue was ground wire connections in the harness. I crimped them together using standard unisulated butt connectors and heat shrunk them. For some reason I got a few bad readings when checking the harness and had to open it back up and fiddle with the connections. I don't know what I would do different, but hopefully a good wiring guy would do better.

If I did it again I would use better heat shrink tubing. I used pretty good stuff, but I'd spring for Aero quality stuff next time. Especially since there are good Tee's and other shape shrink tubing from Aero suppliers.

I was glad I used good DTM connectors even though they're more expensive and require a $300 crimping tool, they are a much more positive connection than Weatherpack or others.
