The temp sensor I located forward of the radiator so as not to be near the generated heat that the rad gives off.


I then run the cable under the light and into the spare tire area by going between the plastic tire pan and the chassis.



Here is a pic of how I laid the wiring.

I then used the second rubber gromet around the hood release cable to enter the cabin.


The cables together in the left hand corner of the cabin.


Up the A-Pillar in the cable retainers.


Joined with the mirror connector and zip-tied up.


Finished.

Installed my Battery Relocations Box (from Norms) and routed the cable to the rear.
Front of Box.


Back of Box.


Started routing the Cable from the engine compartment. I went through the rubber gromet here.


Entered the drivers cabin here under the ECM.


Routed the cable forward in the Console.

Here the cable disappears down under the heating duct.


Then comes back up and out here. Here you can see the hole I drilled for the cable to pass into the front compartment.


Here in the front compartment the cable comes out between the two hoses.
Perfect!!!

Now incase you might be wondering how I was able to get the cable to disappear under the heating duct and then comeback up behind the duct. I can show you a really good little tool to have.
I call it rubber arms..........

I like the idea of running the cables through the cabin below the console. My concern has always been running the cables under the car and the possibility of having them damaged. I think that I will do it your way. Looks good!

Started painting and reinstalling the interior today.
Started with the Gauges. See anything different?


Then painted the dash and vents.



I had real problems with the defroster vent. I couldn't get it to go on evenly without bubbles. I HATE DUPLI-Color paints. Pure crap IMHO. I'll buy some good base paint and color paint tomorrow (the dupli is in the trash).

I will be taking the car to a mechanic on Monday to get the 3.1l, trany, clutch, clutch pedal assy and shifter assy. installed so I have to have at least the basic gauges and dash in it. Plus it gives me a chance to get a preview how it will look someday. So I put the basic stuff back in.



So what do you think?

By the way what is this connector for?

Well we didn't get started as early as we wanted (1 pm). Went pretty good once we did.
First the OEM clutch. I got this from GM here in Germany for $0.00 several years ago so why not use it? The clutch didn't come with a guide pin. So we improvised with a long socket that fit just right into the clutch plate and it worked great.



Here is a pic of the guys that helped. Helmar on the left and Michael on the right.


Then we got the Trany hooked up.

Next came getting the engine assembly onto the cradle. Went great with 3 people to help lower and guide everything together.




Then we got most of the rest of the cradle back together and ready for the installation into the car.

Not really. It's still not real for him yet. Wait until the motor is running then I bet he lights up.

Well I finished the interior wiring harness today and installed the Steering column with the Cruise Control. The wiring harness for the engine I finished earlier in the week.
I put Mobile1 full synthetic oil in the engine and the Syncromesh in the trany. I am almost finished with painting everything around the engine. Tomorrow is the big day!! The engine is going to be installed!! I've got real butterflies about this though. I believe I have got everything right and have checked everything twice (at least ) but never having done it before I am very nervous about it.
Wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed.

I finally got to the point that I wanted to connect the battery and test the wiring swap I did.

I installed the 87 front compartment light and switch into the 88. 8) Still needs some cleaning.


I adapted the original Fiero battery terminals to fit on my front battery relocation mod.


I then tested the head lights and low and behold they work!! :shock:


So do the PW's, the new mirror and all the interior courtesy lights. The front compartment light doesn't light up but it will!!

Tomorrow will be the first test of the Stereo system.

Now that I have the wiring in and the battery connected I just couldn't resist testing the Stereo.......

I hooked up the 6x9's. Then modified the console skeleton for the 2 DIN Pyle Stereo.


The 4x6 were already installed.


WOW what a sound!! Sounds real good. Just not enough bass.

Good thing I have these.

Well today I droped the tank and swaped in the new fuel pump. It works now when I turn the key!!!

As most of you know and can see in the pix I had removed and painted my coolant pipes not too long ago (yellow of course). Welllllll........as I was looking at that FUGLY grey gas tank I got an idea!! I have decided to clean up and paint the tank YELLOW!!

I have also fonud the gas / acid resistant rubber hoses I need to relocate the fuel fill lines. Thinks are coming along nicely.

I covered my liner today with the cloth I had already bought for it. I'll do it in leather some other time.

I want to add a small reminder (warning) here. If you purchase and use one of the after market fiberglass liners, remember to cut the 3rd brake light, visor and clothes hanger holes BEFORE you glue on the cloth or leather!! DO NOT ask me why I mention this here!! ops: :shock: They're marked on the front side but not on the back side. I had to use the old liner pieces to mark the places that needed to be drilled and cut. What a pita!! :P

Visor holes:


3rd Brake light and hanger holes:



It should look something like this when you are finished. Yours will differ slightly........ because my son won't be holding it up!! :lol: :lol:


Here is a mock-up of what mine will look like.
