    Is that a red #00 going to a red #10? or, is that all red tape?!?! What a mess!

    Progress on the 39's wiring, let's show this with a before and after sequence..


    This car has the battery mounted behind the passenger seat, and the orange cable shown is the positive cable. (ground cable hidden above muffler) Both cables exit directly above muffler with not quite enough room for a good bend radius, as shown by the melted insulation.




    The other hoses shown are the heat and AC lines as that is also located behind the driver's seat. We relocated the battery cable entry points to in front of the muffler. The heat and AC lines were re-dressed and loop clamped to get them farther away from the muffler.. Rubber plugs were used to fill the old holes.








    This is the previous location of the fuse box (it's in there someplace)





    With the fuse box relocated under the dash, the floor area is cleared up with less chance of stepping on wires. The radio and antenna cabling will be routed into the glove box, the radio location.





    Previous underdash:





    Fabricated plate for mounting fuse box up under the dash..








    Steering knuckle sleeve weld...





    Despite grinding out the mud dauber's nest and wiping multiple times with acetone, we still got a pin hole in the weld. To limit damage (shrinking) from excessive heat we left it with the pin hole. Still much better than what was there prior.





    The links for the front sway bar as well as the radius arms had little left for bushings. The local auto parts store was not much help for replacement parts, so some delrin round stock was used to fabricate bushings.











    The tag light insulator was hard plastic and brittle, so our attempts to install a longer wire for the light resulted in a broken insulator. More delrin to the rescue..













    Left to do is the front end/engine compartment and re-assembly.

    Again, as always, Nice work. Carbide tooling and delrin. Seemed to cut okay. Was it intentional or just what was in the holder? I've found some Nylon would gum up with carbide tooling.

    That’s what’s I typically use, it’s worked well in the past.

    A recent find of some metalshaping tools, finally found a stake plate and stake anvils... Along with some dolly's I didn't have..







    The wiring harness installed, here's our first test start of the 39....







    Lighting tests:












    With that, the 39 has left the building... Here's the test drive taking it home. Also found out the easy way of opening the ash tray...

    You mean there are still tools you DON'T have? lol 8-)
    As always, good work on the car. I see the 4 way flashers work.. I was gonna tease you about the turn signals but then realized - you don't use'em anyway. LOL I'll have to watch the vids again... I didn't see any ash tray.

    under edit, I did go review the video and see now the ash tray opens under acceleration. Maybe he'll bring it back for you to build a new one?!?! HAHAHA
