Got the exhaust built and the motor/trans in.



Tailight/turn signals, dual coils mounted along with the oil filter adapter.



Used 6" offroad lights and rewired with DOT legal HI/LOW beam halogen units.





Started the wiring for lights and engine. Also need to plumb the lines for the oil cooler which is now inside the car. My plan is to have it on the road the first of the year.

Planning on using a fuse panel and several relays for all the lights and accessories. Lots to do.

Got a little more work done. Still chasing a few wiring gremlins, but it is coming along nicely. Hope to start it this weekend and then start testing.



Added another light to the front. The middle one fills the space nicely.



Found these fasteners at Lowes. I was not going to put the trim back on and I think these fill the trim holes and look relatively clean.



Started the plumbing for the oil lines.



Routed lines through the body and protected them with some grommets.



Finished product. Lines nice and tight. Just need to build an oil line support bracket and I can cross this off the list.

Question What are those fasteners? They look like plastic rivets. My son is thinking of using pop rivets in his. More info please?

I suggest some sort of strap to support the Supertrapp off the exhaust.

I like the idea for the headlights. Are those EMPI 6" offroad lights? The H5006 units fit right in? Cool

Don't forget to wire for a license plate light and a dust light.

In regards to the exhaust. It came with a bracket. Just have not installed it yet.

Lights fit the housings perfectly with no modifications.

The plastic pieces are in the automotive fastener section at lowes. They have several different styles and sizes. Mine are made for a gm product vehicle.

Got a little more work done this weekend. Started with the off road air cleaner
setup.



Elbow is from Lowes plumbing Dept. A little modification and it worked great. Flexible hose is from a Ford Explorer. 25¢ at a local parts swap. Air cleaner is an off road unit from Latest Rage.



Fits nice an tight up under the rear cage.

Also wanted to create some spacers to keep the oil lines from touching.









Just need to buy some hose clamps to hold it all together.

Also finished up the wiring for the majority of the car.







Just a few more things to go.
