I know I've cycled it but I cant find pics for the life of me. The headers are about .25" from the frame. They hug pretty close. The tires don't really get that close them since they are sticking pretty far out. I'll snap some pics when I cycle it next. All my pics are bump and lock in the opposite direction

I got a little bit farther on the wiring. It ended up being a lot more complicated than I thought it was going to be. I'm not reusing any of the stock wiring or than the modified wiring harness and probably door wiring.

I'm wondering what the hell I got myself into at this point

Final wiring leaving the firewall. one loom goes to the front and the other to the rear

Half the dash wiring lands on this fuse panel and the other half goes into the bulkhead connector

The dash is officially in. I just need to land all the wires. I decided to put voltage in the empty gauge spot. I'll make covers for the empty switch holes. I didn't end up needing the ones I had planned to put in there. I'm sure I'll need it for something.

That switch is different than the one on my a340 shifter. I wonder why they used a different switch type since the shifters are so similar.

My recommendation is to drawing everything out before you start. include color and line amperage. Yours should be a little easier with the switch pros. I also regret doing the panel fuses on the dash. It makes sense for a race truck but not for a play truck. At least it looks cool

Are they still contact switches?

Tinycad is a great free program for making Schematics and line drawings, with symbols and all.
