TBISBC Update

For those that don't know, I am swapping my 2F for a TBI 350 I am building. I decided to rewire most of the truck while I was at it, and over the last week have gotten that pretty much finished.

Here is a pic of the finished dash. Overlay panels, new switch panel, new gauge panel, CB mount, and that box where the heater once was is my new fuse/relay/terminal panel. All the overlay panels and the glove box door were powdercoated with a "silver vein" finish, which is basically just solver with some little black flecks in it.

The glove box door will be getting a new shifter "instruction" panel identical to the stock with the exception of changes for my twinstick TCase shifters. Labels for the switches will match that panel.

A closeup of the gauge panel. Automete Phantom electric gauges. I used a Painless universal gauge harness because I wanted to be able to unplug it and remove the cluster if needed.

1/4" Aluminum gauge panel came from the brother of one of our LSLC members. I told him what size holes I wanted, and he did the rest. I had to grind on the original sheetmetal a bit to get the bottom gauges to fit.

The fuse panel cover is just an aluminum box w/ no top held to the backing plate with 1/4 turn dzues fasteners.

It is laid out in sections based on the power source: battery (constant) acc switched, ign switched, etc. Relays along the bottom for the dual electric fans, and the big terminal strip to make adding circuits and troubleshooting easier.

All the handy components came from www.waytekwire.com. No affiliation, but I have used them alot on this project.

Last but not least, the ECM mount under the glove box. 2 wing nuts and it pops out. The ALDL connector will mount front and center on that handy dandy little piece of tube on the front bracket. THE ECM even hides the hiring coming through the firewall behind it.

As for the motor, I just took it out so I can finish up some of the moror assembly on the stand. Once I re-run the new brake M/C lines and move the hardlines from the clutch slave, I'll put it back in.

I still need to fab the radiator core support and fan mounts. You can see a mockup where I was checking for hood clearance here. Big Aluminum radiator and the Ford Contour dual fans.

I can't weld Aluminum , so I'll most likely get one of my dragster buddies to weld it up for me.

Once that's that's done, it will be a mad dash to clean up all the little details before LSCR. It's gonna be close...

Looks sweet! I see you are taking extra care in your wiring.

What motor mounts are those? Any other pix of the mounts? They look like a good design.

The fans are from a Ford Contour SVT. I got them brand new via EBay. They are nearly identical to the Taurus fan, but single speed and I think each is a touch smaller in diameter.

The dual fan and shroud perfectly matches the Griffin radiator I got off an LCML lister for a great price. Totally unplanned, but they matched each other perfectly.

I got them from Bob Firestine on the LCML. They were a little pricey ($130), but a great design. I use the OEM block brackets and clamshell mounts from a pre-86 1/2T pickup. They are REALLY heavy.

Here is a closer pic.

That looks very nice Rick. I can't wait to see it in person. Will it be ready for Katemcy and/or Cruise Moab?

We live in Texas......don't need no stinkin' heater!!!!
65 degrees and sunny right now

Seriously most of our 40's, trail rigs, no longer have them.
Most of us don't even have a top of any kind other than a bikini.

I am trying like hell to be ready for Katemcy, but there is an awful lot of little things yet to be tackled. I've made really good progress the last 2 weeks. If I can keep it up, I should make it.
