I may post some pics later. Somewhat of a clean install though I know people would have something to say and they would of done it XX way, but i would of done it different a little bit too as an afterthought. Sort of one of those, measure twice - cut once afterthoughts. The interior portion of the install I hurt my shoulder and elbow on after the install........I'm still patting myself on the back for the cleanliness of the gauges/switches/lights - that's how I got hurt . What's good, IMO it looks a bit better than the mishmash of things I've seen some people do.

Under the hood some wouldn't agree how I built it, but space was limited so I had to make a central install location for all required parts, real estate was limited to nothing on the fender wells, firewall etc. So I utilized the dead space in the middle of the engine compartment over the transmission and made a brace going from the top radiator support to the firewall and mounted everything on that. The support was made from recycled aluminum square tube that used to be a projector screen mount.

Oh, did I mention I've got 500+ miles on it already - knock on wood A LOT - no problems yet. I hope I didn't jinx myself.

I bought a diesel a couple of years ago and never finished (or really started) the conversion, so that's really cool. You realize that you have to post some pictures of the conversion, right?

Put gas in the tank, motor still not starting.
Learning to use the CAD software (Solidworks)
Getting tired of lack of progress, so I'm going to put the weekly updates on pause for a while, and will start posting again in September.
