Today i got too goddamn greedy. My GF always wants me to be quicker at making decisions but when i am quick, i fuck things up.


First things first.



Mounting the throttle pedal was so easy it must have been one ingredient for the greedyness...

Bolts to the lower left of the two original holes of the original throttle pedal, drilled a new one, bolted up, almost done.
The pedal is located conveniently but it was too light for my liking.

Even easier fix with parts that are even meant to do exactly that:



Old throttle return spring.

For a bit of adjustment i drilled a few more holes:



And to top it off - you see i got really bored - i added some heat shrink tubing on the spring ends to stop noise:





Yeah.
And then i decided i would continue beeing great and merge the two dash clusters.

Now i don't have a pristine D150 cluster any more and the cluster of the Challenger is destroyed as well.
(The housing, no the electronics.)

I won't show pics of that massacre. Let's just draw the blanket of silence over the topic and let me fill out a check for an IQ3 dash...


And now my effing pasta is oversalted. AAAAARGH!

Today was a good day. No effing around with the dash, just purely productive work.

First i picked up my passenger side SRT-10 spindle.
It came with the wheel bearing and i was able to confirm the measurements i took from a picture using a picture editing program.
Now all i have to do is align the spring properly... another "problem".


I continued with the wiring because i was "in the flow".

I hed the (to me) great idea to outline the cab on the shop floor with duct tape. So much easier to get a grasp of where everything goes.
Look for yourself, i got it pretty much layed out and ready for making all the ground connections and shortening/lengthening of wires.



The inside fuse box goes to the back of the cab.



Outside fusebox on the passenger fender, next to the ECU (not shown in pic).



The BCM will be mounted on a bracket riveted to the heater box. I started to like riveting stuff. So much less trouble in fastening stuff to other stuff, lol.
As you can see, i layed out pretty much everything i had, including the pedals (clutch and throttle) and the antenna-box (the "controller" for the key-fob-antennas).
This one will be installed (double sided tape?) on the heater box.



The next step is to throw the original wiring harness on top of that and graft them together...
I would really need the wiring diagrams for that though and Techauthority did not ship my order yet.

I really wanted to separate the high current power cables from the signal cables, just in case one fries...

Ha, best idea ever to do the above. Because look what was super easy to do yesterday:







I made a bracket for the BCM and riveted that bracket directly to the heater box. Mean but it works for now:







Then came the "pita but not hard"-part.
The engine room harness has to pass through a 2" hole in the cab.
It's 2" because i am re-using one of the OEM bushings and it was a pain because i had to make a metal sleeve so i could pass all the wiring through that bushing, which is essentially a bit too small for what i was asking it to do...

Remember to split the sleeve so you can remove it later:



Then use a bit of silicone spray...



... and needle nose pliers to do this:





Aaaand after doing it twice, because i had the bushing on the harness the wrong way and realized it after finishing the last connection, ta daaaa:



Now i can shoot that 2" hole in the cab and continue...
