06-30-2013 09:37 PM 1930u Wiring will begin soon
Today I took some time to inventory all the electrical components. I'm using a the USA made Haywire T universal harness. It looks like a nice product... it should work fine for my simple Hot Rod. I'm really wanting to get this thing going but I'm taking my time and thinking this all out. I only want to wire it once!

Today I removed all the A/C lines. Their all cut to length and the fittings are ready to be crimped. The lines are laying like snakes in the seat of my car. I will drop them off tomorrow at the NAPA store to be crimped.

06-30-2013 09:13 PM 1930u Oil pressure sender and safety switch
This weekend was a bust but I did get a few things done. Here's some shots of my oil pressure transducer switch and fuel pump safety switch. The safety unit controls the electric fuel pump. The pump will not run unless the engine has oil pressure.

06-26-2013 07:20 PM 1930u Started on the instrument panel
Tonight I took a few minutes and put the dash back in just to make sure the back of the gauges missed all the mechanical parts and a/c unit mounted behind the dash. All is well. I still haven't decided where I will mount the tach...definitely not on the column and I'm leaning towards the top of the dash. I figure since the blower scoop already limits the line of site a bit I'll put the tach on the dash behind the blower scoop and not restrict my vision to the right or left. I still have a lot of work to do!

I was really busy over the weekend but I did get to work a little on the old 30. I picked Auto Meter gauges. I really like these because they have the 70's style retro look. Stewart Warner was cool too but I remember when I was in high school seeing so many gauges with of this type of orange needle. I won't be using a speedometer, just these four gauges and the tach. When the gauge wiring is complete...I will finish all the wiring and start this thing.
