Ron Francis EFI wiring showed up. Got a great deal on it over thanksgiving from Tom's Bronco parts.



ECM mount built. Working on routing wiring currently. Reworking the harness some to allow me to mount the components where I want them.

Got a little wiring work done. Tried to mount the relays and EFI fuse block where it was still accessible once the dash is in place. This is on the inside of the passenger foot well. Hoping to get back onto the chassis side of the wiring tomorrow.

Got a little more wiring done over the past couple of days. Still have a couple of grounds and the positive connections on the inside of the firewall to be made.



I routed the starter wire in between the header and the block and it's really tight in there. So I am looking for input on what type of heat protection to use. It looks like the fiberglass coated in silicone is what most desert guys run but the only advantage I can see is the better resistance to Fire. I just pulled some DEI pictures for you guys that only look at those.

for the ultimate in portection I really like the fiberglass/silicone for wiring. It stands up to repeated abuse with chemicals and pressure washing. the washing is a big deal over time the other fails.

Figure out what size and length you need I'll see if we have any left doesn't look like you'll need much

Well the 4 gauge is about 3/8" Diameter. The 6 gauge running along side is a little smaller but not too much. I was thinking I might be able to get away with 1/2". Do you have a couple of battery cables and some half inch to see if you can make it fit?

Finally got around to making my fuel line holders. I couldn't find anything off the shelf that fit what I wanted. Supply, return, wiring and brake line. So as usual I decided to try and make my own. I got a piece of 3/8"x1/2" Aluminum and cut them the same length. I then built a Drill guide to hold the drill bit centered over the two pieces of Aluminum. I chamfered the holes with a step bit and rounded the edges on the belt sander. As you can see I didn't get the jig built quite right the first time but the holders turned out great.





I added some "barb's" onto my heater hose pass through. My Harbor Freight lathe needs alot of work but for this kind of stuff it is perfect!



Last night I got started laying out what I wanted to do for a vent line. This is the idea but my tubing was just a few inches short. So I will redo that later this week. Also my buddy Jeremy stopped by over the weekend and brazed the tube on my tank as well. It didn't leak when I welded it and checked with soap and water but it had a damp spot around it that had collected dust.



Shoulder harness bar is tacked in place. Trying to decide if I should add a gusset on the bottom side. The cage has no triangulation but it's also not a race car.

SWEET!!!

On the belt bar I would do some bracing. Even though in the event of a hard tumble it will do its job and keep you and yours safe, some gussets in that area would help the belt line stay straighter and still allow the top portion to absorb energy. IMO the big thing is in a harder roll, doing a pirouette for instance, repair should be limited to the roof section and not require a complete rework. Those types of rolls are the ones I see most often cause the most damage, they tend to apply a lot force to a concetrated spot.




and yes I googled "pirouette" don't think this hill billy could spell that
