See it HERE
Watch a 3 videos below
That plane went out the wind os a started mocking up the floors and trunk. No problem in the trunk really, but the Master Cell is too wide to sit proudly between the seats.
Andy was over today. We smoked, drank coffee and figured out the front 2 cells can go.
As you know from the brake changes I made (above) we have some space where the old master cylinders used to reside. The old mounting posts were cut away and I get my hands on some aluminum, I will make a panel that will sit there and hold them.
The Front Power Cell is outboard, right below the cowl opening in the body so it can be serviced as required without climbing under the dash; The Master Cell is toward the middle of the car... closest to all the switches in the console and new Dakota Digital Dash!

So now we know where all the modules will go, now it's time to start stringing the primary wiring from the battery in the back. The 1 gauge positive will run through the cabin to the remote starter solenoid.
I made a quick video explaining the status of the wire management to date. take a look.. it's 12 minutes long so sit back! I ramble on explaining the InfinityBox system in laymen's terms and also opine about the stereo system that will be installed.. Take a look!
|First I had to fab up another little dash board for the Power Steering Module and Dakota Digital Dash Brain|
|This is how it looks installed|
|The wiring in the trunk is starting to shape up. I will have to do some trunk lining before I clamp down the harnesses.|
Well wee will be away for a couple weeks so these are the days that I spent before leaving on vacation lengthening words and organizing things. Next will be switches for the power accessories etc.
|Drawing of how wipers will be wired into the system without using the great big ugly switch|
|The Dr. Ruth Console is fitted loosely. Much of the wiring will run through this down the centre of the car|
|Mods made to the tunnel to make it removable. You never know when you may need to get in there!|
|This is one of 2 plastic switch panel Mark O made for me at his work. He's one of dearest and oldest friends and is the owner of a Vacuum Forming business in Burlington called ProThermoForm (Click here)|
|So I make a harness for the 7 switches... Push Button Start, Window left and right up and down, Power Lock/Unlock and Trunk popper|
|This what it looks like mocked up in the console|
