Speaking of details and wiring, I'm starting to button up the AC wiring and figuring out the FI wiring. Most of the leads need shortened and I'm having a difficult time identifying what terminals I need. Also ran some 10 AWG wire to the back of the car for the fuel pump. I utilized a hole for the firewall pad fastener with a grommet.

Small update as the hours of wiring roll on. I haven't seen many pictures of ideas for component location. After a few mock ups I built a bracket and mounted the BIM and control box for the Dakota Digital gauges. Also mounted the control box for the reverse lock-out solenoid on the transmission.

Re: 69 rustbucket rebirth

Mounting your BIM there will make it real tough to read the LED display and push the button if you have to change settings or troubleshoot. I try to mount mine in the glovebox for easy reading and access.

Another option is to mount it with heavy duty Velcro so you can easily pull it down to access it.

I had a bus conflict issue with a recent build and had to change the bus address of the BIM. So stuff does happen....

Yeah I'm also discovering that the BIM harness is not long enough to connect to the Terminator harness outside of the car. I may have to mount the ECU in the glovebox. It's hard to keep all the wiring and locations happy together with all the modifications I've made.

I haven't been able to do much. A machine went down at work the Friday before Christmas and I've been working overtime since. Before Saturday I'd been home for 3 days this year.

Anyway, still wiring. I got some Octane LED lights and I got the Vaporworx Retroworx kit to modify the fuel tank for a late model Camaro fuel pump module. I need to take it to work and TIG weld it in.

Re: 69 rustbucket rebirth

Yes Matt. I went through this a while back where they had some LED on their website, but in order to get the ones like you have you had to call them and tell them what you wanted to insure they were stock looking headlights. Supposedly they were "Gen 3's". Heres their website or one version: Octane Lighting

Do you have a part number and/or link?

What is that plate you are using in place of the bell housing to sweep in post #1098? You said you swept the bell housing so I'm curious how much of a difference you noticed between the two.

I had always heard that a T56 cannot be installed without tranny tunnel mods. I wonder how you were able to do yours without mods. Is there a difference in size between a T56 and a T56 Magnum? Which one do you have? I wonder if the Holley mount and an LS enables the engine to sit lower to allow for T56 fitment?

Brett.....

Well guys, the link to what I bought is already dead apparently. This looks to be the latest version, and from what I can see they changed the glass slightly. https://www.octanelighting.com/kit7-...3rd-gen-2.html

Here is a link to the thread that helped with my research: https://www.camaros.net/forums/33-ca...er-%24100.html

Brett, that is a gauge block on the bell housing. SST supplied it in the kit; it would be difficult to make with the weird shape of the housing and finding exact center. I had .0045" on the rim and .002" on the face. I have the aftermarket T56 which I believe is the Magnum, again supplied by SST. My understanding is that yes, the Holley stuff sets everything lower to enable clearance. I'm using their complete setup; Hooker clamshell mounts, crossmember, headers, etc. It works. I'm curious what the driveline angle will end up as but I don't have my driveshaft yet.

Finished welding in the Retroworx adapter. Turned out the lights and stuck a flashlight inside to make sure there were no pinholes. Need to paint and get a pump then this is done and ready to go!

Re: 69 rustbucket rebirth

Welding the thin metal on a gas tank to the adapter took a lot of skill. I don't think I will ever weld good enough for a project like this one.

Money can't buy you happiness but it can buy you car parts which is bout the same thang.

After all the welding you did on your car I'm certain you could do it! It wouldn't be much different than welding the frame rails to the trunk floor, metal gauge wise. Start the bead on the thicker metal and carry it to the thinner then let of the trigger. It's not a continuous weld either, its a bunch of spots together and jumping around the perimeter. Bzzt, Bzzt, Bzzt, Bzzt and soon you're done. I have no doubt you could get it done buddy.

I finished the tank. It's painted, the fuel pump arrived and is modified and installed. The Vaporworx kit is very straightforward and easy to accomplish. I'm very happy with how it turned out!

The kit components are the mechanical regulator and adapter fitting, I also got the AN line adapter and electrical connector. Simply remove the clip and ground ring. Remove the stock regulator - this will take pliers and some wiggling. Install the adapter, you'll have to massage the filter screen to the side of the hole. Pop in the new mechanical regulator and replace the ground strap and clip. Viola! It's now mechanically regulated at 60 psi. Add the AN adapter and install into the tank. My aftermarket gauges can be programmed for the level sensor, so I bent the float wire to fit the tank well.

Re: 69 rustbucket rebirth

Looks good! When we welded the ring on mine I hadn't understood it was clocked in relation to the pump so mine actually is aimed about 20 degrees off perpendicular but in the end I used a 45 an instead of 90 so it worked out OK - just lucky I made the mistake in the right direction.
