Does anyone know of one for sale new or do I just have to rebuild that part of harness? My 85 ccc fresh paint and i terior done had a carb fire which only affected the front part of engine burned up electric fans blistered both fenders cooked top of hood scoop never touched firewall or rear of engine but cooked top and bottom of engine radiator popped replacing also inner fenders look fine did warp the insert of front clip that's plastic but fiberglass nose is fine I replaced the original (torn up)with honest charleys replacement. Yeah all this happened on my birthday was a day trust me. Any info on harness is apprecited. Pete

That's nasty business. Good body shops are as difficult to find as repair garages. And there are less of them.

I'm extremely fortunate. I have a trustworthy shop with a good reputation and a very decent cooperative owner who keeps my 86 in the same bay for over 2 1/2 years now. And it may not be done until Easter. :hail2:
