Stellar job creating that harness. Any details about how you made it if you don't mind me asking?

Eric, the fuel injection harness is made from 32 gauge wire and the wire harness loom is made from 24 gauge wire wrapped with the 32 gauge wire then it was all painted semi-gloss black. this is my first attempt at detailing a newer car so it took some time but im happy with the outcome

thanks for the comment :-)

Great work!! At first i thought the harness looked pretty bad but with it all hooked up and the engine sitting in the bay its a great addition!  And again great work!!

 

What color did you use for the valve covers?
