    If you are a Patton, then we might be distant cousins.

    You may want to see if the dealership will run the wires for the jammers, dash cam, etc. while they have it stripped down so far. Often times dealerships won't do a full jammer install but will at least run the wires near the front and back bumper for you.

    I usually come up a few parts short, but then they turn up in my "misc" parts drawer months later. I've got more corvette rivnuts than I know what to do with.

    Or at least run conduit with a string through it. When I rebuilt my boat Phoenix I ran two lengths of 1" conduit from the engine room forward and aft. Just in case someday somebody had to run wire or cable through the floor boards. In my experience that always comes in handy.

    Here is the wiring harness. That’s why this is so labor-intensive. Holy moly. One little rubber grommet that was bent during production is what caused all this. Lol

    WOW. And they have to make you a new wiring harness at the factory. You now have a custom MB.

    That’s exactly why it took so long. Apparently my particular C450 is extremely rare because it’s loaded with absolutely everything Mercedes-Benz puts in a car. That makes its wiring harness very complicated. It took them two months to make it. LOL

    It is about $14K IIRC from another thread where someone else had a similar problem.
