Man thats coming along very nice, as far as the relocation and the disconnect switch, I've always liked my buddys idea. He used a oldsmobile flip down license plate, drilled a hole behind it to mount the switch. So all he had to do was flip down the plate at the track when needed it and flip it back up out on the street no one ever new it was back there.

Thanks. I was thinking that might be the way I'm going to have to do it. Did you run your cables under the car or inside?

That's the way I'm going to run mine . We are going to run the hot wire in 5/8 heater hose for added protection.

He ran the wires inside the car and underneath the trunk lid. Gave himself a little slack to open the trunk with out stretching the wires.
Dont get me wrong it involved alot more work and cable but came out pretty nice.

They are walbro 392's. The setup is really overkill but I got a great deal on it. I don't know if you seen I had a better luck removing the evap canister from the tank then most do.

Went by the shop today to look at were to mount switch .Like the idea of running extra cables so the trunk can be raised . One of the fabricators came up with the idea of using the ford emblem on the trunk as the switch handle .He said he can mount it behind the emblem leaving it almost flush then making sone mounting hardware to attach the emblem. It will be kind of stealth looking except for the on/off he plans on airbrush on the trunk lid.

I will be installing subframe connectors a the same time. We only have a 2 post lift so we are thinking installing the roll bar with all 4 wheels on the ground first. Then installing the subframes on the lift. We are hoping this will limit the body flexing on the lift. Will this work.

So I had to put this project on hold for a little bit due to spinning a bearing in my 87 T Type. I have finished that project so it's time to get back on this again. I moved the car to another shop to get this thing going.
They are going to weld cage in subframe connectors battery relocation and do fuel system. They got right to welding the cage in

Started the battery relocation today








Had wanted to put switch in different location but this was most practical place to put it

Finished battery relocation had to redo it because first way we wired it up it just killed the ground instead of the power.

With the battery relocation done it's on to wiring up the fuel pumps. Installed the fuse block with 30 amp fues. Nice block has 6 circuits that can be run off it.

Only got 2 of the 3 relays in the 3 one should be here shortly .


Got to 2 wires run up front for the hobbs switches. The first hobbs switch will turn on the 2nd pump at 5 psi and the other hobbs switch will turn on 3rd pump at 10psi. Hopefully this will help keep the fuel a little cooler

Hopefully will have tank installed and plumbed up by the end of the week
