So, the end result here, is that it runs. So i installed most of the under-hood harness ( i believe all thats left is to do the alternator & starter wiring). I put in my radiator and hoses, and box + intake, and the rad overflow bottle.
I also reinstalled my trans & p.steering coolers:
Found a place to mount the remote trans filter too:
Im also in the middle of working on the interior. I cant install the kick panels until all of the wiring is done and i verify it runs. But i can finish the rest of the interior, which is what im working on currently. If all goes well, i actually expect to have most of that done Monday, so there should be another progress update early next week!
