The current efforts:

Laying out the new bits for rebuilding the front suspension.



Sorting the new wiring harness in comparison to the old harness.



Edit:
Not shown are the rear sub-harness for the fuel pump and tail lights and the work on the sub-harness for the new electronic speedometer.

Got the main harness and speedometer harness all done today.  Even put them into the gauge pod.  I just have the wiper switch and its sub-harness to sort and the new oil pressure and water temperature gauges to install for finishing that as a "sub-assembly" ready for the new body when it is ready.

A bit more "electrical" progress today.  I got the gauge pod basically finished up - wiper switch wired and installed, extra gauges added and their lights wired in, and a power port attached (for phone charger and GPS).



Also did test fitting and filing of the electronic speed sensor for fitting it to the transmission (no picture) and installed one front suspension upper arm.

Some more progress today.

Got the steering rack refurbished - removed the old boots, greased the knuckles, installed new boots and clamps, cleaned the threads of both ends, and installed new steering knuckle ends (pivot pins).



Also worked on the front suspension - got the other side upper arm installed and the full hub assembly for the first side installed.

Great progress.  Iím sure itís going to be a real pleasure to put all these clean shiney pieces on a freshly painted body shell.

I sure hope so.

One thing that will be a challenge is putting the engine and front subframe into the car as a single assembly from the bottom up (factory style).  The tail of the magic wand shifter was a pain in the ass to get out pulling just the engine from the top.  I'm hoping going bottom up as a complete assembly will be a bit easier.

You need to borrow my gantry crane for that!  Or get 4 strong guys to grab each corner.

It will probably turn out to be a combination of two guys and an engine hoist with several ratchet straps.  A real "circus" in the making.

Dropping the body on is a great way to go!   ends up surprisingly Easy!

Jedduh01,

Thank you VERY much for the visual of the process!  I had not thought to mount the front bumper and use it as the lift point for the hoist.
