WOW.. its been a bit since I updated here.
Rad and fan installed
Brake light mounting holes opened up to 1/4-20 I couldnt find the right size for the stock holes
Found the wiring i was missing for the MSD box. It was on my work bench
Mounted the fuel pump.. again
drilled the holes for the steering wheel cover
Installed the dash to see how much wiring i need to change for the unforeseen column mount interference. Not as much as I originally thought.
Then tonite I walked out to the shop to grab a part and realized I was able to walk around the jeep with out stepping over parts hich means I either through a bunch of stuff out that i needed or more parts are on the jeep then are on the floor. Monday Im going to mount the fenders again and work on finishing the engine bay wiring. Once all the wirings finished and stuff is mounted Im going to tear em off and paint em. Heres some grill pics
Heres the pics of my fender fix. Im cheap so instead of buying a good new set of fenders Im using a set that Keith gave me. They are pretty good on the outside but cut for shock hoops on the inside.
I used the plasma cutter to cut the inners out of the bad fenders
Welded the patch panels in
Napa sells a decent bed liner in a can. I wouldnt use it for the bed of my truck but works nice for parts like this
Got a little bit more done today.. I actually made a list and finished every thing that was on it
I hung the fenders so I could mount all the ignition parts and head light harness.
Fabbed some brackets for the MDS 6A box I didnt like the position it had to be in to get it to sit flat. Now it sits nice and level. I also made a bracket for the street fire TFI coil. Of course after i got it all installed I decided I dont like the way the coil is positioned so i need to remove it and trim up the hole in the bracket so it fits better. I have a 12v positive stud to the right of the Coil so all my hot leads will go to it.
Friday Im going to remove the fenders and start to get em ready for paint. I want to be able to bolt up all the fender parts prior to placing them back on the jeep.. Hoping to keep the scratches to a minimum.
The little silver solenoid at the bottom of the pic is the fan solenoid.
Brought my tail lights with me to work today and fixed the wiring.
I added a dedicated ground wire for the tail lights.. hopefully they will stay nice and bright.
So.. Today I got the power steering return hooked up, steering shaft on, lower rad hose, headlights and blinkers in and head lights wired, painted a headlight bezel to see how it looks, painted a test peice of fender flares, bolted fenders on. I also made a 3hr trip to pick up parts from josh.. Not bad for a days work.
Sorry if it seems choppy for a post. *Ijust cut and paste from another forum.
