Thanks guys. Its definitely far from perfect, but unless you get close you'll never notice, and that is plenty good for this car.

Welllllllllll, I screwed up. Yesterday I went to start my car and it cranked but never fired. My wife took me to work and I got a ride home from a coworker. I spent the night working on the car trying to figure out what the heck went wrong while I was working on it... Finally at 9:30 I checked the area where I had been working (huge duh) and found this. That part of the loom was resting against an area where I had welded...





It was a mess all melted together. So I slowly pulled each wire apart. Thankfully, only one was actually broken. So, I soldered it back together.





I then grabbed my roll of electrical tape and went to work repairing the insulation around the rest of the wires.





Lastly, I re-bundled the mess of wires with more tape.





The Metro is alive once again. Hurray.

Fixed my share of these in the past couples years, same issues exactly. Its alot easier if you get the preformed rocker panels from online, will look great when done, and made me more confident in the repair.
