Electrical Part Two

Posted September 15th, 2009 at 10:36 PM by pbrown

I was able to complete some of the grounding project this evening. I bought some #10 wire and then didn't use it.

I extended the heavy black wire on my MSD 6AL to the new ground point on the engine block. The MSD ground was actually a 14G so I used the same.

I ran a #8 wire from the MTX amp to the battery. It is probably overkill. The possitive wire is also #8 so at least they match.

Last weekend was rainy so we put this off one more week. The fenders were removed and then we sanded them all over with 600 grit wet/dry. Then the red base went on. This was leftover paint from when the car was repainted ten years ago. It was a perfect match - go figure. The red was only sprayed over the damaged areas since this is just a dent repair.

Check Out The New Blog

Posted August 27th, 2009 at 08:23 PM by pbrown

Today was a good day. I was finally able to upgrade for forum software. The upgrade went very well. There are some new features. Some were enabled automatically and some will be used later if we decide to use them.

Attachment viewing is one of my favorite new features. You'll see what I mean when you look at a thread that has photos attached. It's very nice.

I also took the opportunity to add the new blogging system. That is what you are seeing right now. The idea of the...
