More like lack of workers, Covid and an outrageous living cost in NJ where people can not afford to work at these shops and live here.
That is a thought, true everything is down low, good idea!!! How did you secure the harness to the crossmember?The wiring harness will be a fun project if you haven't already started on it especially if you aren't keeping AC and/or emissions. One idea is to remove those metal wiring harness holders (carefully now that you painted them) and run the engine wiring down on the crossmember for a tucked look and becuz most the electrical accessories (starter, alternator, oil sending sensors, ...) are all down there once the electrical emissions devices are removed from firewall.
