I decided to purchase from Potomac Packard. They do cost a little more but the quality sounds better. The delivery time is 4-6 weeks. So I am still waiting for them to arrive. I will let everybody know when I get them and the instructions they provide.

Thanks for your advice.

WJAMES I understand your question. The answer is yes. I had driven it about an hour and stopped by the gas station and filled it up with non-ethanal gas. Then parked it.

Thank you for your recommendations. I sent an e-mail to Potomac Packard yesterday requesting a quote. I also sent a message to Harnesses Unlimited with the questions you recommended I ask. I will try RI Wiring next. I'll keep you posted.

Sincerely,

One day I f...
