awesome job on the wiring.

Thanks, it's been some level of a beating. I've been on it for over a month and have not put power to it yet. But I am close. Targeting to finish up connecting the dots within the next two weeks or so.

They are expected to be installed on the rear of the spindle.

Thanks. I could not find any of that information online on their website. I guess I will have to reverse the spindles again. :pullinghair:

Yep, tore it down right before I started my Masters in Fall 2014.

It's not much, but I have been able to do some electrical validation on select circuits. I'll pin-out the ECU pin-by-pin before applying power to it. All else that I can check at this stage is functioning as it should.

There are signs of life!

Your cud looks good and coming along  well. I just a quick question are you using the original k-member or a qa1. I plan on doing this swap and was going to use a qa1 k-member.

Stock K. I feel that I can work around it to make a very good handling vehicle. From there, an aftermarket K was little value added to me, given the total cost.

Working through the gauge cluster modifications. I need to whip up a design to 3D print for the speedo retention. Once I get that in and clean a few areas up, I will prep the housing for some SEM coating to give it a semi-factory appearance.



I sent out for a 3D part to be made in order to mount my speedometer well in the stock dash. We will see how it turns out.





Wiring is getting closer as all of the lights are functioning. Just a short list left of connections to make before I can final wrap the harness.

LOL. A Masters and an E body rebuild. Two things that don't take up much time at all.  lol
Might as well do them concurrently.  :sly:

Congrats on all the above.
And of course the car...

I should be able to get working on the dash in a week or two using this new part.




I'm still pecking away at progress on weeknights after my daughter goes to sleep. Major power wiring is nearly buttoned up. There are significant ground and charge wires available to ensure I don't have issues down the road.
