That is awesome. I'll have to look into that.

So really, 6 are already spoken for essentially. I do eventually want to get one more set of lights, but I'm not certain what type or where to mount them yet. I really, really, like having individual control over each zone, so each needs its own switch. On row two, the spare will likely power onboard air since my bumpers are made to hold compressed air. It also could be a switch to power an inverter or welder. I haven't bought or installed installed the RV water pump yet, but is on our "for certain" list, so it needs a home. Row three is really about fixing the mess the PO left me. He sort of re-routed everything really randomly, so I'm fixing it by centralizing it up. Switch three will likely house a solar battery charger, or engine warmer. While those type of things often have their own on/off switch, I like the redundancy of being able to cut anything off from either direction. Should I change my mind on that, or any of the proposed projects, I've got handy spares for whatever may come along; neatly installed, visually matched, and ready to go. It also will greatly simplify maintenance on the wiring, as I'll just have to unbolt the panel. 6 bolts and I have full access to the majority of all the wiring immediately. That beats the hell out of trying work upside-down tracing wire after wire.

electric fan for radiator, dual battery cut in, back-up lights, dome lights, passenger eject, air lockers need one for each axle.

Dude you need another panel.



were is your build thread? Would love to take a look.

I had to do glass work to both front corners because they had small cracks. Then I scotch brighted the entire top and wiped with final clean. Due to the glass work and filler I needed to get the texture back so I spray bombed all of it with Rustoleum Hammered in black. Then light scotch bright again and one more wipe before spraying enamel satin. I only thinned it enough to get it through the gun to gain a bit more texture.

Pulled the springs last night (sold), taking the rest of the D30 out. Brakes lines are giving me fits. Making room for the D44

I've been thinking of a fab tag to put on all my fabbed jeep stuff. You know, like a little weld on logo. This is attempt 1: you can make out the "D" in the outer shape and the"A" as the inner shape. Eyeball might be out, not sure. That spells my initials. I can have these water jetted for cheap. Could be fun

Today I got mr mum duty. Made it to 1 o'clock before I realized I could do jeep stuff. Decided to do something with my old center console. image-146306177.jpg Had a sub in the front which tucked under the dash and a flat section missing from this pic which had two beer holders. I chopped it back, removed the front panel which had the CB and original lighter fitted and re covered with new black vinyl. image-78707729.jpg image-2670749059.jpg image-2365823439.jpg image-1347011117.jpg I still need to reline the storage box image-3981516190.jpg At least I have something to lean on now image-287594853.jpg
In the front but between the flat bits that stick out I'll make a drinks holder thingo

Got all my wiring done on my engine, started her up and let it run for a while. Set my valves, put on my valve covers, started to install shifter but then realize I had a pinhole in one of my freeze plugs on the front of the block. So now next weekend I have to pull the grille and all the accessories off the front of the motor, knock out a freeze plug, put a new one in and then put everything back before I can drive it again. So close yet so far away.
