Yup, I WTDT on my infamous '87 5kQ. I can tell you for a fact that the
door harness is well integrated with the front loom ... even to the ECU!
I didn't have the patience to do a nice soldered splice of the wires in
the door channel ... as a quick fix I simply crimp butt spliced them all
together and wrapped "the anneurism" (R) with polyethylene spiral wrap.
I then secured a chunk of loom that went ~5 inches into the area behind
the kick panel and was going to do a more proper splice there. Never
got a chance to follow through on that one ...
