I haven’t really had a active build thread anywhere in these days of the evil FaceBook world. My other forums I was active on have pretty much gone belly up. After following a few over here I decided to make one.

Here are a couple of the last pictures I took of the car before pulling it apart again lol

Thanks, Im pretty excited. That was probably me lol. I still lost stuff there occasionally, but I can’t tell you last time anything sold there. Plus the new layout sucks!

Yeah it's a shame what's happened to that site.
I've bought and sold countless parts on there, not anymore.

It does already have a fuel system. It has a 03 Cobra tank that I modified to accept the Fox filler tube. I cut the section with the filler neck grommet out of a Fox tank and has it welded into the 03 Cobra tank. It has a Fore Innovations billet hat with twin Walbro pumps (8an feed, 6an return), Fore filters, and all PTFE line. I also added -8 rollover valve/vent valve and a section of braided line that runs up behind the bumper with a filter on the end.

I also built my own relay box for my fuel pumps. It’s a redundant system so each pump has two relays. That way if for some reason you lose A relay the pump still continues to run off of the second relay. Relay box is mounted on the side of my battery box

Electrical is already in place as well. Battery box in the truck with cutoff switch mounted to the side of the box. Secure in the trunk for daily use, but I have a spare taillight with a hole in it for track days. That way I can run the rod through the taillight and the “push off” handle. All 2/0 welding cable with positive and negative leads from the battery all the way to the front, and 4-gauge from the alternator straight to the battery. All tinned copper fittings that have been soldered, crimped and sealed with adhesive line shrink wrap.

I had already stripped all of the old blue paint off of the block and repainted it black. This is what I used and it worked great!

Anyway, after I got all of the coils mounted up, I started mocking some things up to get things ready to go in. I’m getting pumped now! I’m ready to get this thing back on the road.

Nice work, just remember to put a plastic box over the exposed battery cutoff switch posts... Other wise you experience as a fireman could become very personal...
