Oh come on Bill, don't start defending your wife. She can handle herself.
Unless you're trying to make her think you are manly and all that.

Rainy crappy day, so here is another picture. Wiring on the chassis cleaned up, plumbing finalized, took the film off the plastic sheet, installed gas pedal, on the far left you see my 2 winch switches.




bad news is that I might have to pull the atlas out tonight to re-seal it. The clocking ring is already leaking.

Question on primary and secondary fuel pumps. Is this set up as a spare or for some other reason?

plumbed as a back-up for when (not if) the main pump/wiring fails.

Psshhh. I was just starting to like you...

I appreciate Bill's response but I'd also like to think a "dedicated" wife makes and delivers iced tea, brings out water/drinks, makes meals, and the list goes on.

Hey, my wife is always in the garage helping out. In fact, she usually has the daily project started before I get home from work.

Now, if you believe that........................

Actually, you're a stand up gal just putting up with your man's crazy hobby.

Well, thanks. I enjoy the finished project and the hobby too which makes it easier to deal with the non-stop wrenching.

Although - his hockey team thinks he has been putting off ACL surgery for 'honey-do' projects in the house and they are blaming ME. He won't fess up that he's putting off ACL sugery to finish this project. I can't catch a break can I?

Sounds like a great wife you have.

In her defense, you guys do have a much longer walk between house and garage than we do. City living
P.S. Look for her at the casino first...lol.
