Default Bit by Bit

Made some minor revisions to the front floor/trans tunnel. I'm using the same brackets but making a new shifter mount out of 1/8" aluminum plate. The same panel will hold the switches, fuse panel and maybe the gauges. I want to keep all the wiring short and accessible with nothing mounted to the body.
I had to rotate the fuel cell mount 90 degrees because the fuel line will run up the driver's side instead of the other side. The existing braided line will reach now and I won't have to make up a new line. A little fab work saves some money.

That's one thing that will really save some time during the life of the vehicle and save some of your pain too. Having an accessible fuse box is a great idea. The young guys will understand in a few years. Getting on in years will tell you about it every time you have to try to scoot into a position to look up under the dash in a small space.

Default Not Like Glenn's

Wired the panel that the Cheetah shifter mounts on. Once this his part of the floor is in place I just have to run all the outboard wires to the terminal strip.
The panel has switches for the ignition, fuel pump and fan. It has a starter button with a neutral safety switch actuated by the shifter and the trans brake button. All simple stuff and not much of it. Made a rudimentary gauge panel that will be mounted to the dash bar portion of the roll cage by way of welding the two steel tabs that are bolted to it.

Good thing, your wiring looks nice and neat, I find it almost impossible to do a really neat and tidy wiring job.

Thanks everyone. I keep the pictures small so it looks better than it really is. I put the farwall pieces back in for the final time. Cleaned up and primed the rest of the floorboards and did some other small tasks. Lucky for you guys my camera's battery ran out of emf.

Picked up these parts from Jerry the Sandblaster and primed them when I got home.
Anglia front drums and wheels.
