The 1xx chassis is an electrical dream to work on. Except for some bad choices in wire strand counts across hinges, the wires are nice and solid. You can actually maintain the connectors or worst case rebuild the harness with a soldering iron. Or you can do neat tricks like convert from a 4-pin to 5-pin OAT display without having to cut or splice any wiring.

You can actually still buy the housings and the pins and sockets.
