Haven't updated the thread in a while but still working. A lot of little stuff, not much picture worthy.
The jeep is at a shop right now getting custom rear axles, driveshafts, hydro-boost plumbed. Should be back in a couple of weeks.
Before dropping the jeep off, I was working on a lot of little things. Goal being to get it to a point I could start wiring when I get it back.
- Vintage Air gen V installed and rough plumbed through firewall
- Radiator and fan in
- New Sanden compressor installed (found the correct bracket at Mast motorsports)
- Some tweaks then painted/final install of PSC remote fluid reservoir. Took me three versions to get it shaped and spaced right
- Rear power window regulator/glass in
- Custom bits printed; filler panels for stereo/speaker cut out on the dash, mounting brackets for the InfinityBox power / master cells, wire guides (?) for front core support. I'm also having a few custom badges made for exterior and considering getting new center wheel hub covers done that will fit with the new wheels.
Since I dropped the jeep off I've shifted focus to getting a wiring plan done. I've been procrastinating on this but no more excuses now. Most/all of the core system diagrams are done. I'm still working on / figuring out some of the accessory stuff like parking sensors, back up camera etc.
Not a lot of interesting pictures to share but adding a few since pictures are always cool.
3D printed wire guide. They mount to inside top of core support. Thought I had a picture of them both mounted but couldn't find it. Most of the folks here probably know exactly where they go anyway.
A portion of wiring layout. Can't get the whole vehicle harness on one screen shot. I set up tabs so I have expanded view of individual sections; front, rear, console etc. with more detail as well. Should make future servicing easier if needed. Will print copies and stash in the rig somewhere just in case they're needed.
Made some changes in components along the way, including moving to a 1" thicker fan, and forgot to check new specs for clearance so had an OS moment when I went to install everything. Plenty of space. I did check this time to see if could run a supercharger in the future...it will work with factory pulleys so all good. Not that I'll ever do that but nice to know I could
Went with EzClip hoses for A/C. I pushed the A/C evaporator as close to the passenger kick panel as I could and it makes routing hoses very tight. The EzClip have smaller outside diameter (same I.D.) and grater bend radius so will just fit. It's also super easy to do connectors at home. At least the rough-in worked.
With inner fender and ECM/power cell mounted. Tight but works. Hoses route just to the outside edge of the mount so clear.
Front core support, fenders, dash etc. have all been on and off regularly. Will be easy when I finally do it the final time! Torn back down now but this look keeps me motivated seeing where I'm headed.
