Finally got started wiring the GW. Purchased E-Z Wiring Harness from BJ's. Have been talking to Shawn and he has been super helpful. Not hard to do with the Great service from E-Z wire. Took Rang-stang's advice bought plenty of zip ties.

Looking great. I had a 72 chevelle almost identical to the one behind your GW. I was really into A body 68-72 cars for many years. Cool to see a nice one.

Great eye its a '72. It has been a fun father-son project. We are just about done. If you are ever done. What made you stop? I am having a great time with the GW, a lot more challenging than Chevelles.

The last Chevelle I had I sold to my brother. I had a ton of work into it. non factory 454, 4spd 12 bolt posi hotchkis suspension etc... Sold it to him in 08 I think. He left it out of gear on his trailer and it rolled off and bent the frame. I lost interest in them after that.


Your Jeep is coming along nicely. It looks like a family project as well.

I'm back to working on the re-wiring. This week I wired the front end, Back end, Dome lights and sniper. Need to extend the wires going from Ignition box to battery. Hardest part is re-routing sniper wires so they do not run parallel to all other wiring. Added a Bussman box will come in handy for alarm system.

I suspected a PO worked on the wiring. I opened the harness and was shocked. Duck tape for covering the wiring.Lots of work to do.

So far this has been the only real train wreck in your build so the FSJ Gods are just trying to even the score a little.

Kinda true! This is the only time I felt a little over my head. I am getting it done but it sure is slow going. So far it is a lot cleaner looking and less wires, which is what the guy at EZ wire said, still it makes me nervous.
