'Bout time Scott! Awesome. Nothing like not lacking power out on the trail.

Time frame?

My wife's leaving for Japan for a few weeks in March. I'll have lots of spare time to wheel. . .

Tenetively 10th and 11th at the cabin?

Reason I say cabin is because it's still good and muddy there. The creek is running, but soon will have salmon babies headed down stream. We try to stay out of it while they make their little journeys.


I will check with mar as she has a cousin over there and its about time we visit them

progress??

heres the rats nest from the Legacy

Posted Image

and the dash is out in the EA

Posted Image

the plan is to run without stock dash, heater/airconditioner. the ECU will be mounted right where the stock heater box was right up under the windshield , I want to keep all the major electrical up high and dry , figure this car should run well with water over the floor boards, with use a small light heater/defroster box from a old datsun

I think it might continue to evolve , the blue doors and hood are Rollies so my original red doors and silver hood will go back on , also with a second set of safari doors which will also be a different color thanks SJR

this is what it origanaly looked liked and the doors and hood will be going back on
