Nice, I prefer a bikini top over all others.

And yes, it is the pink wire for the sender.

Yes, Pink Wire. I'm Waiting on some new Rollover valves for the tank. And then it's going back in.

Fuel system is complete.
Tank is in and all fuel lines ran.
I went with rubber EFI hose from the sender to the Corvette filter/regulator and stainless from there to the fuel rail.
The lines coming out of the filter/regulator had to be reduced to hook up with the sending unit.
-Sending unit feed is 5/16 and return is 1/4.
-The Corvette filter/regulator inlet is 3/8 and return is 5/16.
- Then 3/8 stainless to fuel rail.
And here is a picture of the reducers, got them from Jegs. 3/8-5/16 &. 5/16-1/4

Well,
I just need to get a PCM & Stand Alone Harness and it should be Abel to make some noise.
I have been spending a lot of time double checking everything and making sure everything is tight.
Here is a tip for re assembly - After you tighten or torque a bolt, put a dot of finger nail polish (color of you choice) on the head to indicate its tight, Torqued, or checked. That way you won't keep wondering.

Good idea about marking the bolts, but I need to remember not to put stuff on upside down! C'mon, Shaun. Let's see another picture of the Jeep!

Very smart man, Navy uses stuff called Torque Stripe, apparently it's cheap. It's basically just like a colored elmers glue, when it dries it's pretty solid. Works wonders for all the vibrations on our helicopters.

Removed my dash again to do some much needed repairs. The volt gauge needle was broke and the oil gauge acted a little funny from what I can remember. And some of the lights were out.
I want to be Abel to read the LS2's Vital signs before I start it up, So off the dash came.

I found a new volt and oil gauge, And decided to clean up the gauges a little bit with a new look.
I still need to do the Tach gauge and put the oil and volt gauge back together.

I Also want to change the color that the gauges are backlit with from the blue to Red.
For this I removed the blue bulb covers from the gauges. And for the indicator lights I wiped the blue film off of the backs of the plastic screens with a little help from my wife's nail polish remover. I will then color with a Red Sharpie

I wanted to Remove the old dash overlay Around the gauges because it was cracked. I thought maybe I could go without it for a cleaner look. But the Previous Owner decides to hack up the dash to fit a radio, So that's not going to happen. I ordered a new overlay to hide his hack job.

I finished up the wiring of the old harness with the Neutral safety switch and back-up switch.
The loose yellow wire on top in the first pic. is for the 4WD indicator light when I get the transfer case all buttoned up.
