Nice progress. Those grounds came out looking good. At least lack of good grounds will be checked off on the troubleshooting list if there’s an issue.

lol, well im hoping i wont run in to anything once the truck is wired but we all know how these builds go.....

i had some time today after work before we head out of town for the weekend. got the obd2 port extended and wired in. mine was a 5 wire plug. purple, green, 2 black, and an orange. i tied the blacks in together, cut the purple (was pin 14), and ran pin 2 (green) to the data wire in the pcm (purple wire). and of course orange to 12v constant. also got the pedal plug extended and pluged to the tac module which will also go under the hood. the random wires hanging through the dash is the tach wire, check engine light wires, tcc wire for the brake switch, and the vss wire for the speedo

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

i bought some generic grommets off amazon and ran the wires through the existing holes in the firewall, this way i will only have to drill one big hole for the engine compartment wires from the main harness that is getting wired next week. also a couple of pics of my little harness plugs i made. one goes from the engine harness into the dash for the obd2 wires and dash wires. the other loom in the background is the pedal wire going from the tac to the pedal inside. last couple of pics is the ground block i made for the back. frame to ground block. body to ground block. and so far fuel pump grounded. when its time for the taillights, the last 2 suds will be for those.

Really like your ground straps, nice job. As far as people commenting on your progress dont assume folks arent looking. I think a lot of us check out a ton of builds without commenting.

I resemble that remark. I do a lot of looking without saying a word. I make progress without making a comment also.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

lol, well you guys keep peeking in. i been working on wiring lately, i have a thread over in the electrical section for guidance and for the pros to chime in to make sure im doing it right! hate wiring but im getting a MUCH better understanding of how this stuff works. so far i have the rear wired up (tail lights, reverse lights, grounds), wiper switch, headlight switch, cig lighter, and brake switch done. heading to the beach tomorrow so hopefully on the monday the 4th ill be back at it. looking to get the fuel pump harness done and start tackling my guage cluster...not looking forward to that at all

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

little progress but i got my column back from being rebuilt by Les (70shortfleet). looks amazing! got a few things wired and made a power panel under the dash. the left power strip is wired for 12 volt power. middle 2 post is for battery power. right strip is grounds. just in case i want to add some things, i have an easy spot to tap in. also got my LMC dash pad in...fits great, bought it 10 years ago and has been on my shelf the entire time. i know, im random as hell. im waiting on a harness adapter to come in to get the column wired up. its getting there.

oh! also im getting my cluster together. i went with the s10 speedo mod, camaro tach mod, and mid 80s clock. also the ammeter gauge is actually a battery gauge. still some work to do on it, but its coming along.

Cluster looks good. I’ll have to check out the s10 mod. I had not heard of that one yet.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

been working on getting the inner fenders done so i can get the front wired up. bought some trailer fenders, cut to fit and welded them to a strip of plate. they do bolt in so its easy to take out. still need to seam seal the welds and sand and paint them but you get the idea

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

so, got the inner fenders painted and back in..got the whole front wiring loomed and routed. had a few wiring issues with the fuel pump and engine fuse block but i think i got that fixed. spent the weekend getting all that wrapped up and fiding a mounting solution to hold the intake stead without flopping around

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

thanks fellas. I try to work on it every day. I got the lokar shift rod in today, went pretty easy other than a slight bend I had to add to the rod. shifts up and down smooth, and everything lines up perfect except when you get to other D gears. I won't use those anyways so I don't care.

hoping to get some fluids in it soon, bleed the brakes, and maybe add some gas and fire it up to see how she goes.
