The completion of the wiring… well that is a lie. The completion of the wiring in the dash, that’s more like it, has been completed. New wiring goes thru a large main fuse and thru the firewall where I break it up to go to 3 different locations. The first 2 spots are fuse panels that will always have power available to them. One for the relays for various items that I want to have available even with the truck off, such as radio, aux. lights, CB, etc. The second fuse panel will be for the switches that activate the relays for the various always available devices.
The third leg of the main wiring goes to a solenoid that is activated by the ignition switch. This solenoid will feed a fuse panel for the normal items that only have power when ignition is on; headlights, heater, window wiper motor, etc.
All the interconnections that need to be done in the dash have been completed and everything has been loomed in quick access wire -loom. The re-wiring has stopped for a bit at the fire-wall and other strategic points for now; I am waiting on parts to finish the dash and I have other goals for what is outside the cab area.
