    I painted the parking brake, brake pedal bracket and PCM bracket after the de-rusting.

    I kind of hate to put them back where they won't be seen.

    You can't see those parts now.

    I put the dash in today. I carried the dash into the car on my shoulder, because I didn't have access through the door while it's in the garage. It's kind of heavy and bulky.

    It worked out great though, I easily set it down vertically, on the carpet, in the back seat area, and worked it into position from there. Of course, I couldn't have done that with a hardtop.

    It's my grey dash for now, I might be getting a black one, or painting it in the future, I'm not sure yet.

    I finished up connecting the dash harness.

    I ran into one connector difference between the 93 and 94.

    The 94 dash harness has a grey 8 pin connector, the 93 had a black 12 pin connector.

    The wire colors are the same, so I just took the connector off the 93 dash and re-pinned it on the 94 dash harness.

    I'm guessing no one ever ran into this problem before.

    Since I don't have a 93 manual, I just used these photos when I re-pinned it.

    I've got a 93 EVTM if you want to borrow it.

    Love the bracket restoration Bill, looks great!

    Thanks Eric.

    I'm hoping this will be the only difference that I run into. I'll be sure to ask you for a look into the 93 EVTM if I run into another one.

    I've got the 94 EVTM and for some reason the pinout for that connector, C218, is not even in that manual.

    I'll add it to the trailer full of parts I'm going to dump on your driveway.

    I mean, its OBVIOUS, unless you're color blind....one is for a gray dash, one is for a black dash...DUH!

    EDIT...I looked it up:

    that connector goes to the thingy that controls the whatcha-ma-call-it, you know, over by the you-know-what...glad you were able to re-pin it, or your whatcha-ma-call-it wont do you know what when you connect that other thing-a-ma-jig.


    Nice.

    I put the rest of the gubbins and trim in the dash this weekend. I had the black top dash panel and steering column as spares, so I used those in the mix.
