Before Vic went to work, we lifted the luggage rack with the solar panel onto the roof of the van, then I steeled myself to drill holes in the roof for the wires to run through. I threw some paint over them to hopefully prevent any rust. Once I'd put the grommets in, I ran the longassed wires through, then totally failed to get them down the B pillar - I think I need a long wire coat hangar or something. I put the luggage rack back on, then pulled out the driver's seat so I could wire up the solar controller to the battery array that lives under it. I then took the new seat from the passenger side and installed it on the driver's side, so the seat back adjuster is on the left hand side. It's also a pain to do anything on the driver's side, so that's all over and done with - when the new seat shows up, it should be easy to install now I have all the parts out.
