Work in progress 1996 e300d

Purchased the car for a pretty good deal from an older gentleman. He told me he just had the injector pump rebuilt and it died shortly afterwards and was told he would need a new harness and plugs. I have always wanted a diesel car and am currently in the process of redoing some wiring. Wires were all wrapped in tape when I got a hold of it with many bare still wires touching, only two glow plugs are bad. still have yet to drive it but enjoy learning about soldering which is my first time, electrical and diesel cars. posting a before and after of the glow plug wires, they were bare with an occasion piece of insulation every foot or so, now they are new gxl wires, purple was the cheapest. Plan to post lots of pictures after I am finished with the wiring and get it into running shape.
