...anyone who makes HD electrical accessories(alternators, fuse boxes, wiring kits) for the 4000 platform? If so, who? I figure while mine's getting a new motor I can do some peripheral repairs that might turn into a pretty thorough restoration. TIA.

heavy duty 130-160 amp alternators at decent prices. As far as the wiring and fuse boxes go I can't help you there. LMK if you want any more info on the alternators...

you started clipping wires and installed new sockets in the tail lights and "things" like that.

I'm not sure exactly where the electrical problems with the 4000 sedans lie, but the alternator is a good start. Mine hasn't acted up yet, but better safe than sorry. So yeah, go ahead and post the info if you would!

Sockets, switches, worn wires, bad anal probes.
I think the alternators are OK. I'd change the voltage regualtor along with the alternator too, seems like changing the pair makes things happier for some reason many times.

Looks like I'll be in for a treat if I do decide to go through with it. Besides, you never can have too many amps, especially since I'm planning a decent stereo(nothing competition grade, just a nice sound). I've had electrical problems with my Scirocco too, and I don't want to go through that again.

By the way, I know electricity and electronics. I'm not a stereo expert but I understand all the theory and most of the practice.
If some punk is trying to sell you monster cable let me know. I'm a stereo salesmen's worst nightmare.

I know most of it is hooey, and I'm not gonna go all-out with the system, I've already got a good head unit, and I'll upgrade the speakers, MAYBE add an amp/small sub, but nothing big. I just like to not have to worry about my alternator.
