Wouldn't mind at all.

The sensors in the wheel well and their associated wiring doesn't look hard to remove, its the wiring inside the cabin I'm not sure about.

See the loom of wiring going from the driver to passenger side in this picture? This goes to the ABS ECU.

I'm thinking it would be best to cut it at the driver side where it branches out from another loom of wiring, then neatly tuck and tape the wires.

Any problems with that? Would I have to wrap each one individually to avoid shorts?

Here is what you have to completely remove the ABS:
- Lines: You have aready done that (or are doing)
- Sensors: I know that for the sensors.. you just have the sensors, and then any of the lines going to them.. But how much wire?
- ABS ECU: That is simple enough..
- Wiring: All that Damn wiring..

You have wiring to the Sesors, the ABS ECU, and to the Brick in the engine bay.
If you want to be anal then you would have to go to the point of removing ALL of the ABS wires.. untape the wiring harness everywhere, and then remove those lines, and then retape everything back up. (that sounds like a WHOLE lot of work).
Or, just at the different locations, you can go in and cut the related plug(s), and then tape up the wires there so they are not touching anything. That is what we did in the engine bay.. and it helped clean up soo much.
Inside of the passenger compartment, we just tucked the ABS ECU connectors away.
And the sensors.. well, we did not do anything with that.. although may go back and just remove the sensors and clean up any of the left over wires.

So, if you want to cut any wires.. the easiest thing to do is cut the wire.. take some heat shrink, fold the wire over, and then heat-shrink it, and bam, no chance of shorting anything.. or you could just electrical-tape off each wire. It is up to you.

Yeah I wouldn't bother unwrapping the whole harness to do it 100%.

Haven't actually started on anything under the hood. I'm planning to get all the parts I need like brake lines, a flare tool, bender, 3 way valve, etc. and do it all in one day.

Like you said, easiest way is to just cut and tape, making sure nothing shorts.

I'll just be removing the main loom pictured above, the sensors and their wiring. Will post pics and info in this thread once its done.

Since I'm making custom lines there will be some instructions on that too.

This has been posted before, but when you make your own brake lines, fill the lines with Sand, so when you bend, they will not deform. =)

i will be stripping back all the wireing to remove all what is NOT needed on the including a/c stuff, and any other b/s, maybe start a thread on just that.

thanks to justjoe's wife it makes me want to involve my soon to be wife to take pictures and help.

let me know what everyone would like to see mainly, and ill focus on what is asked.

ill have a very acurate scale as well and measure in detail whats needed.

I went to my local Toyota dealer and the parts guy told me that this part is now discontinued: p/n 90413-10182 : 3-Way valve

The AT180 proportioning valve, p/n 47150-16040 is still available in limited quantities at $450 CAD. :shock:

Is the 3-Way valve only a Tee or does it contain any check valve or other components?

No problem, this was only informative. I will go another way. I will install an adjustable proportioning valve.

Just use the one from your ABS brick :shrug:
