Is that overhead console from a GW?

My '84 does not have one, and I would like to add it.

Came with non working overhead console. Went through a few computers and then rewired from drivers footwell to roof. Bought one computer that had wires and plug so I was able to de-pin and make it work. The lights/plastic/metal were all there, just needed to clean contacts, do wiring, pop in new bulbs, and replace burned up computer.

6/11/22: Took down tank, repaired frame rail. Not much to weld to and I'm a lousy welder. Will clean it up tomorrow. Took off NP228. Took off exhaust. Painted BJ's steel tank. Drained coolant. Tomorrow I need to disconnect everything from engine/transmission and pull it out. Then a lot of cleaning.

Busy weekend. Got 6 hours in on Saturday and Sunday. Unhooked everything, cut off exhaust, pulled the motor. Still cannot figure out why the Viper alarm door remote quit working when I installed the BJs door relay kit. Need to prep the new tank and install pump and sending unit. Run new fuel line to front with regulator and filter. Electrical should not be hard. Besides ignition wire from cab (hoping the Viper does not mess things up), only oil pressure/ water temp / voltmeter gauges. The rest comes from the GM harness. Lots of wires going to nothing at this point. Ignition/coil/choke all gone.

Just bought twin stick from Rock Laurence. Vacuum thing still works, but I do not want to deal with creating the right amount to keep it working from new motor. Less stuff is better.

Got engine in, twin stick installed. Fired right up but found two fuel leaks. One at Tanks Inc filter/reg output. Maybe defective part.

Got to get driveshafts done, exhaust made.
Would post more pics but having to move everything to Flickr then upload here is a PITA.

Might redo my build thread on hosted server and just add a link.

There are no quality build threads with step by step. Would love to do that. Basically take harness back to the firewall connector and have a list of what goes where. Looks easy enough but all these old jeeps have been cut to pieces. I had a lot of duct tape holding wires crimped together when I got started.

Anyways, here is a link to first start.

holy smokes, engine sounds so good.

the easiest site on the planet that helps you post photos is

postimages.org

read how to below:

if I can use this site for posting on IFSJA,...anyone can

I lucked up and chose "postimages.org" site for trying my first photo post

easy as pie, and free

after you load the image

it gives you many choices under the photo,....

the one you want to choose is "hotlink for forum posting", ....YOU CLICK THE BLUE FOLDER IMAGE AT RIGHT OF LINK called Hotlink for forum posting
when you click that, it copies the link automatically to your comp....

then go to ifsja and after you type your message hit PASTE,...and that is it
the photo is on the site,....
