Then ran a wire from the splice location through the firewall under the dash. Also tucking everything nicely back into the plastic harness cover.



Finally mounted a small toggle switch under the dash.



All in all, I think it came out pretty good.
What exactly does that do?

Basically sets the idle from 750 rpm to 1000 thus increasing the output of the alternator withotu needing your foot on the gas. Police package XJs had this feature so that their batteries didn't die due to all of the equipment they had.

Nothing exciting happening today so I "washed" my XJ.. More interesting things to come mid-week.

Overhead Console, painting

Went to the junk yard today and scored a overhead console and mounting bracket out of a grand caravan for $10! I already got a trip/ mileage display out of my dad's overhead because his is a 96 and there are no wires to connect it.



After that I got bored a painted my knee bolster black. Ill probably paint more of my interior later on with the same color.
