I cut both, ended up with red and blue 740s

RIP to my 744. Looks more and more like I'll be taking all it's goodies for the wagon.

Definitely on the to-do list

First, though, I must address this blue interior Brought the car inside to warm up. It's chilly for us here in Modesto @34 degrees in the garage this morning

I wanted to when I woke up this morning, but then I found the joys of having a pre-90 wiring harness I have a spare LH2.4 harness. Is there a snowball's chance in hell I can use it as a replacement? Going to lay it out and have a look.

I'm all too familiar with that shiz. Big reason why I moved on from my old 85 740t.

I am trying to avoid the same fate with this one since it means so much to my Dad. I sure miss your silver car Square

Thankfully the interior electrical is in good shape Swapped in my Apline head unit from the 744
