Default Yes, I know this is overkill ( 11-14-21 )

I think I am going to rename this car to Project Overkill

Once again I am taking the passenger side header off so I can get to the wiring at the starter.







So I dropped the lock washer of course my floor is speckled gray so it blended right in.



Eventually I laid on the ground with the flashlight so I could find the freaking thing.

Default Wiring toolbox ( 11-14-21 )

So the other day I was looking at all of the tools I have collected for wiring this car and I thought I would share pictures of my tool box that is completed dedicated to wiring. So when the car is done it will be going back to my warehouse.

Default Fuel Line Routing & DEI Heat Protection ( 11-20-21 )







I need to widen this rectangular hole so the fuel line can pass through this opening safely.







I installed the DEI Heat shield and EXO-Sleeve.





I am still trying to figure out if I am going to secure the line to the firewall or just let it hang from the fuel rail. Which doesn't sound good as I type this.



This is the final AN fitting that I need to finish the fuel line.

Default ARP Battery Bolts ( 11-25-21 )

I am not a fan of battery bolts and I really like ARP bolts. Since Rad Rides uses them on their builds I might as well use them on my car.



Apparently the bolt got a little warm.



I ran the bolt all the way in to make sure it wasn't to long. Eventually I will order the correct bolt.

Default I Know I Know this is so not necessary ( 11-27-21 )

So totally not necessary but I did it and it looks really nice as it made the lines disappear.







He's almost full grown.







While I cleaning up the lines I noticed the passenger side line was really close to the trans coolant lines. So added a couple washers under the bracket to raise the line up.






I finally received the black dipsticks from Lokar. So I figured I would install them while I was here.







Trans Dipstick.

Default So I think I am going to leave it ( 11-28-21 )

I have been going back and fourth on this for weeks if not months.

Do I have Mario paint the Radiator, Fan Shroud and A/C Condenser or leave it natural for this version of the car.



Today I am going back and touch up all of the holes I drilled in things. No reason to let things start rusting.





I am also removing the blue tape on the frame for the last time.



So I learned this trick when I was still in High School. My buddy's father put grease on the core support body mount to stop the creaking that old cars made and still make.





It's hard to tell what I am doing here but this was the only way I could get the washer on the Core Support upright brackets.







It's hard to believe I used all of these tools to install three bolts
