Brian,

I would call that painter and tell him to SLOW DOWN! This is too important a step to rush. Tell him he's got 6 months and you want a real concours-quality job!

Your bestest pal,
Joe

Cheers Jordan. Yeah the blue chassi is beautiful looks amazing in the sunlight. Think the red body with the blue chassis will look great. Can't wait to get this bad boy on the road

Hello ,
very nice and detailled work ;

I was looking at your wiring as i got the same component for my kit , the 100 amp relay and 20 amp fuse box , i would like to know if the fuel pump use its own relay or is it wired on the main relay ?
I see that you got maybe 2 little relay .
Also what kind of fuel pump did you use ? (LPH?)
And the starter and alternator goes together to the battery live right ?

I know thats alot of questions but the electrical part is a mystery to me :-
