Thread: Signature Brings the Funk!

  1. #21
    now it looks like this







    So that allowed the hole in the engine bay where the wires for the fuse box previously went thru to be welded shut. A panel was made with the plasma cutter and then mig welded to the car. It will be smoothed out with filler along with many other "eye sore" areas. Here are some before and afters

    new home for the fuse box











    theres still tons left to do to make it all sealed up. The blower still passes thru this box and will be needed for the heat to function properly. ONLY ambient air will be passing over the fuse box connector wires since the heater core is AFTER this box. So there will be no concern for damage at all. Plus as I mentioned before, access will still be possible from under the glove box.

    The ABS module will be bypassed and the lines will be rerouted and hidden.

    The connectors are nice crimp style. Since they are inside the cabin they wont corrode. I did mine this way a couple years ago and everything is still great. All the wires outside and in the bay are all soldered and heat shrinked. I also ordered some really good braided wire loom (not the propylene convoluted plastic garbage). We are also taping it all up with 3M 33+ electrical tape. Its pricey, but well worth it.

    Good progress on the wiring again this weekend. The loom is awsome to work with. It expands like crazy which helps to go over connectors. Then tigtens back up for a super nice look and VERY strong protection.






    Once we figure out what holes will be used, we can weld all the others shut and start smoothing the bay more. Heres a pic of the nice routing for the headlights.






    we took the opportunity to mock up ANOTHER first for he protege: Signature Firewall Vanity Panel. This will be available for anyone that wants to shave the bay without having to take the dashboard off to weld all the holes and smooth the firewall!! It bolts on using the existing studs and can be configured for custom or standard brake boosters. The aluminum sheet is made from 5051 and is .100" thick (Nice and sturdy without a ton of weight).

    That wiring loom reminds me of the old Chinese finger traps. Looking really good.
