I actually did mount a plate high on my driver's kick panel Mario. But then after bolting the fuse block to it I found it didn't hide the fuse block very well, so I tore it back off. I finally decided to remove the hand parking brake assembly because I wont be using that. It allowed me to drill a pair of holes to match the fuse block, and I bolted it on with 1/4-20 x 2.5" long bolts. So it can be removed in case I ever needed to.
I'm pretty anal about grounds, but hadn't considered SS screws. I'll take that idea for sure! I drill and tap all my ground screws if possible. If the metal is thin I use screws and nuts behind as I don't care for self tappers, unless it's a last resort for grounds.
I also didn't use the rubber body shims that came with my '39 as I prefer the body bolted direct to the frame for better grounding. It does add a little vibration transfer, but these aren't high end custom cars, so I expect a little road noise transfer anyway.
This wiring harness is a new one for me. I've used the Speedway 20 ckt. GM harnesses previously, and love them. But this one was $85 vs. twice that for the Speedway. And it comes with a fan relay, and some features the Speedway harness doesn't have. So far I like it, and the diagrams that came with it make it very versatile for almost any year car with alternator, or generator, and old or new steering column. Takes a little longer to build, but I think it will be better when it's done.
No work yesterday on the '39 as we had gorgeous sunny high 40's! I decided to finally break down and put the new mufflers I've had for 6 months on my Burb. So I chopped off the old, and welded in the new Walkers. I'm a bit shocked how bad the old mufflers were, as they didn't sound as bad as they looked off the truck! They literally fell apart once I cut them off! Both muffler inlets and outlets fell off, and the ends were cracked and leaking!
I guess I got used to the drone, and rumble, but it was amazing how quiet it was on my drive to our Tue. car club meeting last night! I think I like the quiet version!
