redoing the wire in my pathfinder. after 13 yrs of fixing, replacing and adding stuff, it was pretty bad. i'm not an ele
ctrician, so it doesn't look like a Yellowfin, but it's looking a lot better.
still have the trolling motor batteries and the rear battery compartment to do. also have a leak in either the jack plate reservoir or the power pole tank, keep getting milky oil in the bottom of that compartment. and the story never ends!

That is a great job! Wiring is such a pain. Any idea what it cost you for all the wiring?

wasn't bad, about $60 or $70 for wiring and heat shrink connectors. the fuse box was about $35 and buss bar about $10. most other stuff was reused from original. did buy a new battery maintainer for the troll motor batteries and it was right at $200.got everything on hold again. i decided to cut into the fuel tank and give it a real scrubbing on the inside. want to get rid of all traces of the ethanol residue in there before buttoning up the console.

You cut into the fuel tank? Is it plastic, aluminum? How did you reseal it?

OK-got the hole cut and you won't even believe what i got out of the tank. check it out. i'll build a couple flanges later in the week and post pics of the patch.



pure ethanol. tan when wet and dries to a fine grey talc. tank is spotless now. after i button it up, i'll go thru the filters and screens.
