    Probably the coolest car I’ve worked on.

    Spent the day doing various wiring. Accessory fuse block to run the fog lights, fuel pumps, gps, and lighting. Red dash lighting, and white interior lighting via led strips attached to the roll bar padding.

    C5763B8E-1050-4056-AB5E-B0311DDFDB1E

    Monit timing computer mounted directly to the glove box door, reminiscent of vintage rally timing clocks.

    Chevy truck fuel tank selector rocker switch to toggle the dual fuel pumps and relays. ..and cleaned/re-glued the loose vinyl. New air control knobs from Sierra Madre.

    GPS antennas on both corners of the hood opening/cowl, and Spot Trace mounted in the center of the dash under glass… They say gps antennas need a minimum of 12” separation. We have three of them.

    Thanks!

    Another late night. Wiring mostly done. Rugged radio intercom and accessory fuse block.

    Fuel pumps and relays look nuts. Pat made mounts for the foot board and monit foot switch.

    Monit gps foot switch to reset trip/section times while driving, needed a mount also. Tube clamp and a piece of alum plate handled it. E3F56CC5-EA68-415A-8B1B-5DBCAFFD4B252CC7DAB2-0583-4D77-82D2-AABE216D0444DB4AAFD8-1AF4-4884-A62B-FA319AF2E366

    Dzus fasteners mounted to the floorboard also. Working on tab mounting this morning. 756D29BB-024C-4FAD-901D-58E053A70E258C5FEA37-6FF0-4C01-9C13-B10EDCB1500F

With the new struts we found out we needed different front calipers. They finally arrived today! Pat and I installed today.

    Franz has been finishing wiring.

    Doug came and finished some of the interior! Fixed a small rip in the headliner and made us some floor mats. Lightweight baby!

Tank in. Starting to move stuff around in the trunk. With the cage welded in we are having to love a couple things like the brake fluid reservoir and gas vapor box. Here we go!

    Fuel tank and foam seal went in this evening. We had to come up with a plan to re-mount the brake fluid reservoir(there is a roll cage tube in the way of the outlets).

    Thing are looking good. We are running out of parts to install. Front bumper install prepped for tomorrow.

    Pat made a sick brake fluid reservoir mount to mount a 73  VW beetle reservoir on this morning.

    I did’nt show this last night…I utilized the crack in the dash pad to route the gps wires 😁
