My only concern now is fracturing of the aluminum tubing so I need to mount it to minimize movement but also allow for temperature expansion. I think a thin support from intercooler to transmission will do what I need.

I thought so, too and spent a bunch of time unwrapping wiring harness and checking wires. I unhooked the ECM when I welded on the car but did not unhook the battery, and I suspect that somehow I damaged a sensor. I have a new DTC code, P0237, which indicates that the boost sensor has a problem. Anyways, I built a new exhaust today and discovered much too late that I have to switch TIG to DC to weld stainless.

Put a stickie on the cover in that general vicinity......race cars can never have enough stickies

It was a big inconvenience to get at the left side of the motor because the panel that contained all the gauges and wires had to be moved. I moved all the gauges to the spot I was reserving for a digital dash and also simplified the switches. I still have all the wiring to do and plan on doing a real nice job of it, which probably means ordering some new electrical bits and pieces. I am not worried about the steering wheel blocking gauges, I never look at them on a run. I only look at oil and temp gauges while waiting to run and the boost and afr gauges when on the dyno.

Loose congrats!!! ditch the lexan covers for dedicated wiring trays .......alumeeum channel or such. Hey how stinkin' cold is it that you're wearin' a dadgum bomber jacket???   -6 to 0 C?

In reply to 759NRNG :

lol, it was chilly outside and I was so excited to get the new sensor on that I didn't even bother to take my jacket off.  The Lexan covers that I made are often taken off for a variety of things so I can't turn them into an electrical panel. There aren't a lot of places to put the electrical that are protected AND accessible so I have some thinkin' to do about placement. I'm pretty happy to find the problem and hope the ECM actually permits boost, but I won't know until I drive it.

Don't worry, I have been working steadily on the car. Here is a sneak peek at what I am up to

You may have already covered it in this thread, but what is the name of the exterior color (other than gray) for the car and where did you source the paint from?

It's a Porsche color with a german name, I will get it for you. I got the paint at NAPA

I'm sorry LooseC, but in the name of all that is sacred (in my minds eye) ditch the lexan panels (+/-1.1 lbs??) and focus on NO MORE DRAMA ........as the sticker here in deep east Texas says.......git in sit down n' hang on !!!

I might have to remake those panels anyways and probably will not go with the lexan, except for the rear spoiler

"Thanks, electrical is my weakest area (except maybe for my Tig welding) and I dreaded the whole thing but after watching the Bad Obsession Motorsports guys do outstanding work on their Mini project, I decided that I have to up my game. Watch these guys, you won't regret it"     I've said it before and I'll say it again your fab skills rival BOM and you 're not doing this 'for a living' (kartworld). All I've seen in those vids are complex sheetmetal bracket bending exercises.....oh and a hvac blower housing. The TRUTH in their build will come when they attack the 'intake/snail/intercooler plumbing under that tiny bonnet.....that and getting it sorted. Maybe i'm a bit partial being a 'B' owner wink

I think I may go to a lighter gray when I repaint the car. This gray gets very hot in the Nebraska sun. Here is an example of the Nardo gray that I like

Thanks!  I'm actually considering Nardo Gray for my car.  We might end up twins!
