Mike your wiring is always top notch. The soldered joints and heat shrink should go a long way towards giving you years of trouble free use. What are you using to melt the heat shrink?

Thanks Jim. I am just using a standard cigarette lighter as I don't have a heat gun. It works good and doesn't take very long.

I installed the switch under the rest of the main controls. I couldn't put it on the left as there is just too much stuff in the way with the roll bar and the parking brake release. I didn't want to risk hitting it with my knee every time I got in and out of the Jeep. There were already holes that lined up so I didn't have to drill any new holes through my painted dash.


I had already ran the input wire to the relay behind the dash so I only needed to add the short power and ground wires. Once I had the terminal ends installed, I didn't like how close the exposed terminal ends were to each other so I took the next larger sized heat shrink and installed it over the outer edge of the terminal like a shield.






So now they are better protected from the elements and wont be able to short out to each other if they ever got bumped or squeezed.


I flipped the switch and the light turned green. I heard the relay click and my toolbox got brighter.

Got the soft top installed today. I'll post a few pictures later, late for a dinner date.

I got all the soft top hardware installed. Nothing to fancy to detail there so I'll just post the pictures.







It was a pretty tight fit. I used to pull the rear bar to the second hole adjustment but I could only get it to the first hole this time. I think the top needs to sit out in the sun for a little while to soften and stretch.

You finished the Jeep before I finished reading thru the build pages. Couldn't resist flipping to the end of the book though! Great job.

Your Jeep is a thing of beauty. Now that it's 'done' you will need to post a monthly picture of it to keep this thread alive so we all don't go through withdrawl.

Is that SuperTop? I just did the tinted windows and upgraded to sliding glass doors on my ragged old SuperTop. I'm happy with it.
