well, back to this.... got most of the parts in - still waiting on window motors, but outside of that.... I think I have everything

I convinced myself this car was worth a Dakota Digital package... which almost didn't happen courtesy of that company we called FedUp



in other news, I wonder at why I had all sorts of pressure when I built this and very low pressure now...

well, if the distributor moves up....


yep, God was watching over me
and oil pressure

locked in place.. forever.. just like before


in other news, I have shaft rockers for this - and the rockers seem a bit loose

mirror, minus light


how to wire the doors

use picks to press in on the outside of the brass ferule

pull out to get loose of housing

note the silver mark - I mark the wire and its attendant hole so they don't get mixed up going back together

remove the housing

remove from the wire guard

there is a hole that lines up with the hole in the door... feed into the door jamb

feed the wire through the guard then into the door

snap the wires back into the housing

and then install the dust block



then onto wrapping sidepipes...edited


the stainless is growing on me


I used DEI wrap, then used two exhaust pipe clamps to hold either end.... that ain't goin' nowhere lol

time to show the result.

the metal band is over the DEI wrap

right next to it is 215 degrees

I had to adjust the front band to be sure it wasn't touching the bit that's 379 degrees - because heat does travel... that said, I may still paint "HOT" as a stencil ... stylistically I won't like it but I don't want to see someone get a nasty burn
to be clear, the point of the wrap is to prevent me or a passenger from getting burned getting in or out


then I worked on the power window motor... it's toast

note the step where the brushes ride...


hopefully the new motors will arrive soon - been patient because Zip was a lot cheaper... but time's up.

lights.... work



now to wire the linear actuators... there's a possibility that I'll either be buying more actuators or that they "only adjusted at the factory" means "only adjusted at the factory unless it goes to Aaron"
in other news, starting to get the interior sealed up as well
