Re: Can you tell where to tap on this harness?

Just a thought...

But how about installing a nice rubber grommet to 'finish-off' the hole that you drilled in that opening cover?

Re: Door indents?

'Detent' would be a better word to describe the door opening positions.

And none of these positions hold the front doors when & where I want them to. They are weak & need improvement.
