Anyone think this would be a helpful Tech article?

I just finished replacing every wire on my FJ and there are some tricks I had to 'dumb luck' my way through. Topics:

What to keep and how to tell if the switches are OK

How to route the different groups and what you can clip & coil.

Where do I need diodes?

Should I replace the ignition system too?

How to install & adjust a DUI distributer.

If this would make for a good technical article submission, lets hear.
I would sure appreciate it. I am a ways off from wiring yet, but my '74 40 is gonna need complete rewiring and I was thinking of going painless. I am also looking into going TBI--so trying to learn all i can about ignitions/distributors etc., before i make a final decision.
I just finished the frame--sandblasted/por/chassis coat--still have a long way to go before wiring!
