[Es2] my 20vt project

I have looked at your 20v turbo conversion web site and followed some of
your progress on your conversion.
I have been inquiring about my 20vt (3B) conversion project into a 1990
quattro, looking for some basic advice on getting started.

I have always done most of my own work, including engines, transmissions,
brakes, body, etc. I have had 7 or 8 quattros and still have 5 or 6.  I have
four coupe quattros,
one 20v coupe for the street, one parts car, one that I transplanted a 10vt
engine into for track use only, and another that I am starting on now.

I'm hoping you have a word of advice for me. I am comfortable with the
issues, but when I started taking out the coupe wiring harness, the mess of
started worrying me. On your project, how did you start the wiring? My old
harness has a few wires that I think will be needed, but I am inclined to
pull out the old one completely and then come back later to add the ones
needed. Did you start this way, or try to merge the two as you went along? I
would also like to know if you cut a new hole in the firewall or used the
original one. If so, where did you locate it?

Any advice you can provide to help me get started will be greatly
appreciated. Thanks.
