Question to you Bob. How old is the body on your car? Is it before '92 when I got mine? I thought all of the 34 Classic Motor Carriages,Fiberfab,SB kits had metal cages going through the roof. You must have metal in place in both door jams left and right where other Manufacturers bodies used wood I am assuming. If so I can't help but wonder how you used wood in place of the steel frame tubes.
No need to apologize, I got mine in 89. They made a lot of changes after mine, they change the braces in the trunk, they changed the wiper motor placement from up above the windshield as they should be to down below on the cowl, I believe they changed the bracing under the dash. as far as I can remember they had metal coming up behind the door like it was a "B" pillar then tubing going over the top of the door and down and it went onto the "A" pillar, or what they called the "A" pillar, not like any "A" pillar I ever seen. The "A" and "B" pillar were to be welded to the floor, but if you but if you did that you could not ever take the body off the frame, so I bolted all mine in.
There was a bar or tubing going across from one side to the other right above the windshield, and another going across right above the fiberglass piece that went below the headliner. My body is also different than most in the firewall and the hump. I can't remember how all the metal work was, I will post a picture of my body, you can see the difference. It's dirty but you get the idea.

Yep there is definitely a difference Bob especially behind the engine in the fire wall area. Hard to believe being it is only 3 years difference from '89 when you got yours to '92 when I got mine but there surely is a difference and there must be other differences I am willing to bet.

Yes there were a lot of changes, they had the firewall looking like it was in a steel car, the one thing wrong with it was they could not make the tunnel big enough for a modern transmission, or better yet the bigger transmissions, like the AOD like I have. I had to cut mine out, then I made one out of S/S and had to make a bump on the driver side to get the linkage to work without rubbing.

I know there are a lot of changes in the frame work, and how things are mounted, like the wipers.

Well I promised mine manual to someone, I have his Name somewhere in this here computer, But I can't go up steps yet as I just got home from breaking my leg. But before I send it, I can scan it and send you the pictures. I think the wiring they give you is way overdone. I just bought a Enos board and used my own wire, lot less wire lot cleaner look.

I have to agree with Bob on this - find a good aftermarket module and wiring and you will be time and effort (way!!) ahead. There are just too many good ones available then to fool with SB ho-hum wiring arrangement. American Autowire, Painless, Haywire, It's a Snap are some that quickly come to mind. Ron Francis is also good but tends to be quite a bit more expensive.

Well I really don't know how much help the manual will be, as it doesn't have the circuit name on the wire does it? I didn't have any on mine, but I have a old car still CMC.

You didn't say how much of a hurry you were for it, or if you wanted me to scan mine when I can get upstairs in my shop.

Just put my CMC Factory Wiring Harness still in new shape up for sale in the Electrical Parts for sale section on this forum. My harness was numbered or labeled don't recall with out looking at it again but I went in a different direction at the time when building mine. Not a bad wiring harness but of course you will need a Fuse Box to go along with it. Wouldn't use that crazy contraption of a fuse box as shown in the manuel. That for sure won't work out well. Also have seat covers and glass listed in the for sale section for the same car.

Hey all,

This is a very timely post! Could you all (or at least all of you that are willing to post) please post pics of your electrical for your Street Beasts rides? We're going to fire up ours this week for the very first time and I'm very excited about this.

Don't have any pictures of any of the electrical work done on my build. Doubt if you are going to find many that took pictures of everything they did in building the car. I have plenty of pictures I took during the build but nothing showing exact detail like one might find in a manual. Actually when you come to think about it most people have different things in their cars so wiring it would be completely different from one car to another.

Whatever you do, don't wire it like this!! This is what it looks like under my dash. Notice the unlabeled make ready fuse box that was installed. I've had some electrical problems, and it takes forever to trace and follow a wire in this mess. This is the way the car was when we bought it. I never found out if this car was assembled by Street Beast or the first owner. I've debated if we should purchase a quality wiring kit and fuse box and rip out the present bee's nest of wiring, but maybe more trouble than it's worth.

I have to say that that wiring has to go - besides being a futile project to find a problem, it might be a fire hazard.

Looks like the fuse panel, if you can call it that is the old style boat fuse panel. I would rip it right up and put something that at least looks safe.

That was my first thought, too. None of the fuses are labeled, so I would have to use the process of elimination to identify each one. If I do hold on to this car, I was hoping to re-wire and install a fusebox like the one in photo, in the trunk. At least it would be accessible.
