Progress has slowed, lots of little things to complete that just seem to take lots of time. Still working on getting all components finished so that I can move to final body work.
Stole this idea from someone, can’t remember who. 1/4-20 rod with fasteners on the end and felt pads. These keep the dash really tight and I can unscrew if I need to. I’ll more than likely use velcro on the leading edge like fran suggested.
I had forgotten about the windshield wiper motor, hole is drilled and the few washers in the previous photo will space it out enough for the shaft to not be poking out as much. 3 wires fast low and park. I took off the GM column wiper arm and I’ll just use a simple turn knob wiper control. Works flawlessly.
The two autoloc motor controllers are mounted and partially wired. It is wired to a remote controller, the black one in the foreground, also autoloc. This setup works well and is super easy to wire. Since I am using the door actuators as locks this will be to constant power.
I used Scott’s mod for the door actuators, very solid. My welds on the end nuts aren’t pretty but I can guarantee they’ll never break off! Next is to cut the holes in the doors and mount them.
I created way more work for myself by welding these brackets on for the harness mounts. Totally forgot I could just wrap around the bar. I’ll be grinding these off and going with the wrap method. It will be a much cleaner install that way.
My lower harness mounts are ugly, but they’ll be under the seat so you’ll never see them. 1/8in steel with 1/2 bolts with larger fender washers.
Progress on the seats have stalled, so much work. I finally cut out the holes for the harness. I will have to add in filler on the bottom cut out since the seat was made from two halves. These will need a lot of refinement before I can carbon skin them.
Top hole mounts on the headlights are an issue, I’ll have to make some fiberglass brackets to hold those. I’ve been procrastinating on this.
Center duct is in, again needs some refinement, I try to do most of my fiberglass work at one time if I can. It extends all the way back past the cockpit and is completely fiberglass so no chance of water intrusion. It will be painted black inside. Should have done that first.
