Got the shocks installed, broke out to bottom of the tank for the sending unit out of the 12. Need to lengthen the sending unit hoses and rods. So the gauge reads right. Also started lengthening the fuel lines.
Fuel sending unit lengthened and installed, fuel lines all ran and hocked up, took the hitch back off and sanded and painted it with industrial paint. Fuel tank has to come back down to put the hitch back on because you can't get your hands in the frame to position the nuts/keepers for the hitch bolts and you defiantly can't do it when the body's on. Monday straighten up the wires and fuel lines, take the tank back down put up the hitch, reinstall the tank and transfer the fuel from the 12 into the Ex, fire her up and driver off the frame rack and set the body on the frame.
Everything all tided up. Used the V10 pump to transfer the Diesel from the 12 tank to the ex tank, swapped the filler necks and tubes. Got the 12 Excursion running today. Tomorrow but on the body and do the parking brake.
Still working on wiring. Got most of the Ex wiring wired back into the 12. Just have rear wiper, 12v outlet on one side, power for the rear heater/ac fan. Mounted the extra fuse box for those items and all the add accessories. All the DVD players, back up lights, will be coming from the fuse box. It has a hot lead right from the battery 125 amps, and grounding lead to the body and spots to hook up grounds. It's mound underneath the dash right next to where the wiring harness leaves threw the fire wall.
Took my extra fuse box back out so I could split the fuse in half. So I have 6 hot at all times and 6 with hot in the key on position. Had to do this with a relay. I also wired in some more stuff.
Back of fuse panel opened up.
Still working on interior wiring. Today I wired the dvd players, one in the drivers head rest, one the passenger headrest and one roof mounted for the third row. They all have to be able to watch the same movie from the big DVD. Also wired for dual usb charging ports. One for the front seats, one for the second seats, one on each side of the third row seat and one in back by 12v outlet. All wired together on one circuit. Put the speakers in from the 12 and wired them. Tomorrow run all the wiring for the 6 seat heaters for the second and third row.
