Started rewiring a 99 dodge neon PDC for the ZJ. It will be the accessory block to clean up the gross wiring jobs, all fuses and relays in one spot. Additionally, this is a fun project to learn how PDCs work and strengthen my wiring knowledge.

Yea it's all within reach, just a few bolts and volia we had the motor completely out had to to motor mounts anyways, but with it out it's very easy to do everything nice having the rear main fixed and new gasket no more oil leaks lol.

Replaced the leaking oil pressure sending unit with a new one this afternoon. Not bad for the mileage.

Before

After - Cleaned with an APC, polished and glazed.
