    Drivers seat assembly is in and mounted to the floor. The passenger seat is assembled and I will get it mounted this weekend. I also got the coolant reservoir mounted, the upper radiator hose installed, and the bracket to support the air intake. I fabricated some small panels to help seal around the harness attachment points.IMG_0043.JPGIMG_0044.JPGIMG_0046.JPGIMG_0047.JPG

    Well the passenger seat is mounted and all of the Dyna Mat in the cockpit is done. I have started routing the transmission lines. It is a job keeping them away from the heat and not be in the way of anything else. I will need to mount the drivers harness in preparation for first start and go cart. Oh, and the steering wheel would be nice too. There is still a lot of wire terminating to do first. Somehow I keep putting that off.IMG_0051.JPGIMG_0052.JPGIMG_0050.JPG

    It is spring time and I spent most of Saturday scrubbing the pollen off of everything on the back deck, after the rain stopped. I did manage to get the hole for the F5 fuel fill covered and the new one for the Boyd tank cut, with the grommet and fill hose installed. I also located and temporarily installed the battery box.

    Coming along! Couple of questions for you - who's fuel filler cap are you using? When I deleted the FFR tank it also deleted that so I need to get one. Also, battery "box" source? Looks great!
    Thanks & Cheers, Steve

    Hey Steve. I ordered the filler assembly from Factory 5 and the battery box is a Billet Specialties item # 135-248915 from Jegs.

    I drew this up yesterday and put it together last night to control the cooling fan. It allows the ECM and the a/c t-stat to control the fan independently without back feeding and the a/c stat is priority. IMG_0069.JPG

    Great idea! I think I would be wise to do this too.
    What relays did you use and where did you mount them? Under the dash is getting pretty crowded...

    Thanks Keith. I ordered the relays from amazon, about $10 for both. I hear ya about the over crowding. I spent about an hour and a half staring, trying, and more staring. Trying to find the best place for them to live. I finally gave up and went inside. Mine is especially bad since I moved the LS fuse box and the power steering controller inside. The dimmer relays are also attached to the pedal box. Fortunately these relays are relatively small.

    Not much done this weekend. We had a house full of grandkids all day Saturday and I spent the day yesterday with the wife for Mothers Day. However I did sneak into the garage for a bit Saturday afternoon and started on my temporary gauge panel. I can't say enough about the Can-Bus gauges for the LS. It reduced the RF dash harness to 8 or 9 wires, plus the OBD2 connector. Super simple. IMG_0072.JPGIMG_0073.JPGIMG_0074.JPG

    Cooling fan relays are installed and wired, also the ignition switch and headlight switch. Tonight I will work on the relay pack for the column mounted dimmer switch.IMG_0077.JPGIMG_0076.JPG
