      I ordered one like the adapter in your link but it was 1/2' to 1/2" and it wouldn't clear so I have ordered a 1/2" male to 3/8" swivel and it should arrive in the by Monday. I hope it will clear. It will be close.

      Darreld, or anyone else for that matter...

      I want to use a different loom on my Holley EFI harness. I believe Holley uses the TechFlex F6 split loom, or something very similar. What I am looking for is maybe a tighter weave split loom that is softer, more like a canvas feel. I have looked through the TechFlex website many times, but it is hard to know which loom has the feel that I am looking for. Anyone have an opinions or options?

      When I called them about what product to use the saleswoman offered to send me samples of whatever I wanted. They will send you about a foot of whatever size and style you are looking for.

      The Painless ClassicBraid may be close to what you're after. I've used it, and it has a more "clothy" feel to it. The Techflex F6 woven looks to be very similar.

      I received my samples in from TechFlex. I ordered some Insultherm and Insultherm Tru-Fit. The product will go on my spark plug wires. I ended up going with the Tru-Fit. It was a little smoother looking and slightly easier to work with. I ordered the 0 gauge which should expand over my wires and have a little extra capacity. The sample I ordered was for 3/8" and was a little loose fitting. The plug wire diameter was .32" so slight smaller than 3/8". I believe they will help protect the plug wires up to 1,200 degrees. I ordered some more shrink wrap to seal up the ends of the wrap and make a clean look.

      The last couple weeks have all been about wiring, wiring and more wiring. I have most of the basic systems in place now and am connecting the different systems together. There is a lot of CAN connections that I really don't understand so my tuner/chassis guy will help me with the final connections. The engine Harness for the Haltech will need to be shortened quite a bit in order to look tidy in the engine compartment. Some wires are about 2 feet too long.

      During part of the wiring I decided to move away from a Taylor battery disconnect switch in favor for a remote battery disconnect that will provide a little theft deterrent as well. I went with a Cartek piece that is pretty cool. A simple push of a button can disable the entire car but leave some circuits open like an alarm. It is not the most cost efficient piece of equipment but I was how it was working on a Lamborghini last week and was impress with it. So simple to install and effective. https://www.cartekmotorsport.com/battery-isolators/

      I hope to have all the wiring done in the next 2-3 weeks. I figure there is still another 40 hours to go there, maybe less if I stop coming up with items to add on. LOL!

      I will soon be waiting for the body guy to come over to my house. I will need him to fit the hood and install the hood hinges before I can put in the radiator for the last time. Once the hinges are on the hood can be removed until it is ready to go on for the final time. This car is like a lego kit. This has to be done before this and then on to the next component that must be installed. If one step is missed then you go back to the beginning and start over. Really slows down the final assembly but the final assembly will be super clean.

      A small update on progress. Still wiring but it is getting close to the end. I have to wire about 4 switched, install the AC box and run hoses for that. Everything else is pretty much done except the engine harness (needs to be shortened), install the dash and tuning.

      I will have a delay with the engine harness and tuning though. My guy that is going to do that has to move his shop and will be busy until the end of June.

      I finished up on the plug wires today. The are Dragon Fire wires with Flextech heat shield. I chose the Dragon Fire wires because I needed 45 degree boots on the plugs and that are the only ones I could find. I hope they are good.

      In the picture you can also see the adapters for my temperature gauge. I think I will take it off and paint it all black. I hope that will make it disappear a little more.

      A little more progress. Got the brakes bled today and did a little weighing if the car. Still missing the hood and most of the interior but she weighed in at 2922 lbs. I figure when she is fully done it should be around 3100.

      I am sure that is more than stock but there is a whole lot more going on than stock. Coming into the home stretch though. My tuner will be ready for the car by late June. I should have everything buttoned up before then. Most of my time lately has been spent wiring and making sure the wiring was clean. Lots of heat sharing and braiding going on. Kind of a pain in the butt but it will be worth it.Name:  35DF98D7-EB4C-42A2-BCB9-E01E9B3A5C8F.jpg

      A little more progress and some setbacks. The window, wing and all other switches are wired. The Ramlift Pro is working great and I can now raise the front of the car abour 2" to help clear low driveways and speed bumps. I was ready to put the dash in but started to have a couple issues with the courtesy lights and headlights. Neither work now. The courtesy lights were on all the time and now wont come on at all. I have to look at that system. The headlights were working fine and now they don't. I hope it is a fact that the control box needs full power from the battery to work and it is a little drained from testing the electrical systems on the car.

      The modifications to the heater box ducting are done and now it can go in the car but I need to figure out the headlight and courtesy issues first. Much easier to do without the heater and dash in the car. Once that is done I will put in the dash and start programming the various computers on the car. The AIM track monitoring will be first, the setup on the Bosch ABS will be next and I will leave the Haltech ECU for the tuner to deal with. The transmission controller is already setup for my setup. I also need to wire in the Lokar sport shifter so it has the bump shift capabilities activated. I can do that tonight. It is a pretty easy job, just 3 wires spiced into a control box for the paddle shifter controller.

      I did find out that I have a small leak in my radiator where the lower radiator hose is welded on. It will be an easy fix and can be done on the car.I also was battling a brake fluid leak on the ABS controller. I had used a banjo bolt for the feel lines into the unit and could not get them to seal properly. I ended up fixing it by using an adapter fitting and some really short flex line. The flex line is probably a better option anyways due to the vibrations of the unit. The tuner won't be ready for the car for 2-4 weeks so I have some time to deal with these little things. I am really looking forward to seeing this thing run. Should be a lot of fun.

      I have an appointment setup for 7/14 to have the radar detector, parking sensors, alarm and stereo system setup by Musicar Northwest in Portland. Once that is done the car will be ready for Tracy Weaver over at The Recovery Room. I don't think it will be done by SEMA so I will likely take the car down to the Grand National Roadster Show early next year for its first event. Should be a blast!

      Great update! Sounds like things are falling into place without too much aggravation.
