68 RS Conv Rear Harness Routing Help
« on: October 25, 2012, 12:06:28 AM »
I am in the middle of my restoration and am having a brain cramp on the correct routing of the rear harness. The area I am not sure of is from the passenger compartment into the trunk. Does it go through the area for the convertible top mechanism, or does it go outside that area along the seat back frame? If anyone has any pictures, I'd be grateful!

Along the driver side of the car (in the trench) and then over the driver side wheel well.

(Ignore the red wire I'm holding up. My son is running an amplifier in the trunk)

Awesome Ed - I have a fold-down rear seat and power top as well - this is just what I need! Thanks!

I am in the process of installing my rear harness, does someone have a pic of how it gets routed on the LH side inside the trunk?

Cannot find a page in AIM for the rear harness

Much appreciated

Mike, you won't find that in the AIM since the rear harness was installed by Fisher Body. However, take a look at UPC U25 sheet A1 and you'll get the basic idea.

Ed can you confirm on the convertible that the harness will go up & over the wheel well as in U25 and is between the trunk hinge and quarter panel area. 

Thanks

Mike, there should be a hole in the wheel tub flange for the plastic tree wiring harness stay. this should help you line it up.

Sorry I missed this Mike. Yes, that's exactly how it's routed.
