    Fully on SD now, eliminated maf, and relocated the coolant overflow bottle. Going to be a wire tuck in the near future to clean up the bay some more.

    Pictures!

    Thanks! A lot more tidying up along with a repainted engine bay and a much better build will follow as soon as I close on this house and have a two car garage!

    Stay tuned!

    Did you have to extend any wires to move the fuse box like that?

    No sir. Just pop a couple of the zip tie clips out of the body, remove the fuse box bracket and your set.

    * Beware, you will end up with excess wire harness just laying out in the open which might not look so good unless you can tuck it away somewhere. Only reason I did it is because I am planning on relocating it to the glovebox in the near future.

    Also keep in mind, I am no longer using my MAF plug or multiple other sensors which reside in that area so I cant speak for those if they would need to be extended. Proceed at your own risk.

    If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

    Got my new to me main engine harness in the other day and have started to strip it down to make the necessary modifications to it.

    Fuse box and harness should be here in a few days so I can finally undertake the fuse box relocate to glove box project.

    Stripped more of the harness and marked more sensors to be deleted along with the related wires. Slowly but surely.

    So far the wires I've pulled out and ready to be cut, along with the sensors I've removed so far.

    Well,

    After quite a bit of thought I have decided to truly start from the ground up, something I have wanted to do for a few years now. While I did not take many pictures of the dissambly, you can all imagine how it went. As of now, the only thing that is left on the unibody is the windows which will be removed this week. At which point I will be doing a thorough cleaning and blasting as much of the car as I can before welding unused holes closed and preparing to send it off to be painted. The gsx will be leaving the silver club to join the northstar white club.

    While the unibody is getting spruced up, I will be concentrating on upgrading the entire driveline and suspension components then moving on to the heart (stroker) part of the build. A few pics of where I am at presently and will try to keep more photos coming in.

    Nice, can't wait to see what it looks like when you're done. Did you already have the harness tucked, or were you saving it for this?

    I had started to mess around with the harness but no, I did not have a full tuck done. That will be taking place along with the rest of the build.

    Tackled the passanger side wheel wells today as well as the quarter windows. Little more to do on the wheel wells then it will be time for some primer.
