Hi,

Is it possible to paint the inside of the van with the loom, fuse box and steering column in place? Has anyone done this and did it come out OK? I plan on removing everything else including windows / headliner...

Cheers
Steve

I'd rather re & re a full wiring system than a headliner anyday, if you are up for punishment like that a piddly wiring haness is nothing. Besides it offers you the opportunity to put it all back correctly and evict any PO's.

You can. Just wrap it in plastic and tape it all up. I would remove all the switches and bundle them up, too. But like Busdady says, probably a lot less hassle to remove the haness and fuse box and redo it right.

I just did this and it came out ok, just have to tape everything off like everyone else said. But I didn't have the time or resources to take everything else off so I taped pretty much the whole bus off. I agree it would be fairly simple to take out compared to everything else.

After the electric woes I've had with this bus i'd prefer not to touch the loom! I forgot to mention, the headliner was already removed... It's good to know some have masked the wires and the job came out OK...
