Thanks!

I did get just the low beams wired up and working so I can drive it. I still need to put a finish on the buckets and run a power feeder from the battery to the front so I can finish wiring the high beams.

I figured out a way to do either white or red in the same halo. I will do that when the buckets are done.

My Fuel pump quit working due to corroded terminals in the pump connector, I had to drop the tank again and rewire the pump. This time I soldered 10AWG wire directly onto the terminal lugs of the pump.

One thing at a time.

I found this some where on the web.

That somewhere would be me!
I also weld a short length of rod to the front of the box, just above the floor so that the lip on the base of the battery fits under it. That stops the battery from tipping backwards and the clamp holds the back down.
I stick a sheet of thin plastic (something like the stuff a skylight might be made out of) to the front face where the battery slides in and glue a short length of PVC pipe (about a quarter inch long) into the holes so that the battery terminals cannot touch bare metal.

Thanks! I was afraid about posting other peoples stuff. I'm glad you like it. By under the front of the box you mean, forward, I bolted in a bent L channel across the top of the battery to hold it down. The clamp, I welded a nut to the bottom of the box to secure the back of the battery. I like the idea of the plastic sheet. However I am concerned with the width of the battery in the tray. It's about 1/2 inch wider than the battery. I'm trying to figure out what do to keep it from sliding sideways. Any ideas?

Working on the projector wiring too now that the battery is up front.
This is the stock Fiero headlight connector going into the male version of it with the diode installed so the lows will stay on with the high beams. I still have to wire in the projectors to the battery through the relays.

This where i'm mounting the Hella relays. They are pretty cool because it has two contacts for the output. One for left and one for right. Two relays one for low and one for high beams.







There is a harness that runs under the radiator. That is where I ran the harness to the drivers side from the passenger side relays.

Sorry. Wrong person here.

I do wiring myself for a living on aircraft.
I post progress pics on the details like this so people can learn from it.

I got roocked on that spare engine. It was supposed to be a low mileage L32. I paid 1,300 with the wire harness and the computer. It's low mileage but it turned out to be an L67.

For a good series 2 L67 you should be around 500. Low mileage maybe more.

Here is one in my area. For your 'merkuns, that's $300 Cdn, which is about $200US. Even if it's just a lump, might be worth it. I'm thinking on it.

Gathering up mods to keep me busy this winter.
It would be nice to find some electrochromic (auto dimming) side mirrors. It sucks sitting at a stop light at night.

Yup. This mirror is from a 98 Escalade. Tahoe mirrors are the same too except they don't have controls for the headlights. This mirror does something to delay the head lights too but i'm not sure what for. It's not on the print but it is on the mirror (2 pin connector)

I wonder if corvettes have that option. Those mirrors look good.

The mirror is Gentex which is in alot of different car makes. I found theses on a 1999 Buick LeSabre Limited. Personally I don't like the looks of the Corvette side mirrors because of the telescoping look which to me doesn't flow with the styling of a fiero. These are similar, fiberglass and easily modded to fit right. (I hope)

Maybe these will work. They have power,defrost and auto dim.
