Steering collum stuff that I had,

So my trunk lid off of this Chaser was fucked cus it had some lame wing on it and we ripped it off and yea, so had to grab the one from my blue Chaser as it was all good, but it had tons of aftermarket sound deadner from when my Chaser had a huge stereo. That needed to come out
Took about a half hour to an hour, and got a couple good cuts in my hands before I put gloves on haha
Next was to get rid of the blue vinyl
With the heat gun that came off alot easier than the deadner
Took a break from working on the car, went to the gym and set a new best for dead lifts at 455lbs!!!!!
Back to car after guy, took the door panels off and started to remove stuff
Had to roll the window up to get to all the wiring, so I hot wired the motor, also helped me figure out what is what for wires
Attached new lines so I can wire it into my painless set up, yes it is all soldered!
Loomed and ran through the factory boot
Way cleaner now!
O and some packages showed up this morning
Just some of my gear they sent me, and all the Wirez wiring that I need to get the car going and rewired!

My friend came over to install my Wilwood Clutch Master with remote reservoir, had do modify where it bolts to the pedal and where everything hooks up. He has this same set up in his RX7 with a 660hp LS3.
Remote reservoir mounted on the strut tower
Pedals all installed, and swapped from the auto huge brake to the manual smaller brake
Got my wheel and hub swapped over
Started to run my main power wire with Wirez power cable
Battery box installed with my power distros, and also mounted my battery kill switch on the back of the car
Loaded up onto the trailer and took for custom headers, dropped it off this morning!

My friend has a tuning program that turns the ECU almost into a stand alone ecu, and can change anything and everything on it. He's running 660 hp out of his FC with a LS3 on the factory ECU.
The shop he's at the did a tune on my truck (04 Chev 6.0L) with the same program, and I picked up power and mileage.

Started out working in my living room on the dash panel
Then moved to the garage to drill the gauge holes as I didn't wanna sweep up after getting stuff everywhere
Had to cut the hole for my double din Clarion head unit that is going in
Then mounted my switches, my gauges, and the double din cage, the deck I'm getting is not released yet so they haven't even shipped to North America yet so waiting on the deck to go in. Those are my switches for my heater/defrost, strobes, and other random things.
I was lucky enough that I had my spare dash at home that I could do this, as the one for my car is in my car at the header shop

Then I cut out the inner mount of the cluster and mounted the abs inside of it
Didn't take many more pics of the cluster install, but I had to modify the factory cluster and take parts off of it to mount it, but now it's mounted and looks great
I get the car back today or tomorrow, and will be swapping the panels over
But woke up this morning and found my truck looking like this!!!!! And last night I was in the garage working in a hoodie and it was nice out, WTF!
Great drive to work haha,

The cluster looks good. Is your center light for check engine or highbeam indicator?
Posted 05 April 2012 - 08:08 AM
Thanks, the yellow is check engine, the place I bought my lights from didn't have any blue lights for high beam, so I tooka single bright blue LED and put it in the bottom of the cluster pointed up that I'm gonna use for it. Otherwise the led light would point right in my eye while driving haha

No idea on the weight yet, I`m gonna put it all on a scale before I install it. The subs will be removable, but who knows how often I`ll take them out haha. If I make it to FD or a FD Pro Am event I`ll probably take it out.
Well I know everyone is probably watching Formula D today! But I took a break from that and went off to NPP to see how my headers were coming, and they are almost done!!! just needed to finish up a couple welds and then put the clamps on my 6 part driver side headers. Pics below.
Passenger side in car
Passenger side out of car
Driver side with some of the lower pipes removed
Picking up tomorrow!!!

View of the headers on from below
Ended up pulling them out so I can get the ceramic coated, damn it was sorta a puzzle on the 6 piece one after I took it out to go back together
Got my power kill switch mounted up
Wired up to my Wirez power distros
Also took the wiring out of my frame rail, just incase I have a minor accident that it doesn't crush the wires, so I heat wraped it and ran it through the engine bay
And got some radiator hoses
