Wiring, ECU connections, Center console, Radiator brackets

180-IntercoolerRadiatorMounting/IMG_5605.jpg

I spent most of the weekend finishing off alot of the wiring,
I have connected the ECU to the switich / permanaent live.
Extend some wires for the center console, soldered in additional wires for the dashboard indicator dual lamps.
Connected Alternator warning lamps.
In doing all of this I also made a the hole in the rear bulkhead bigger so I could feed the ECU loom thorugh here, and cut some aluminium to allow me to close up the hole and fit a grommet over the cable ends.
I've started working with my neighbour to weld on some bracket to securly mount the radiator, above the intercooler. Work will continue on this tomorrow night.
My order from CBS should arrive tomorrow, so I can then get the horn, fan controller, header tank fitted.
I also found I was one silicone hose short for finishing the coolant plumbing, so have ordered the missing 35mm 90degree bend from Viper Performance.
