The one issue I ran in to was once you pull the panel, there wasn't much slack wire- made it hard to be able to see what wires went to which plugs. Mine was an 88, so maybe in later years they left...

If the 86 is similar to the 88, you should be able to get some thick plastic, like Starboard, and cut out a spacer block. If you make the block large enough to span a pair of holes, it should be...
