    Interesting about the use of rare earth magnets to mount the wiring clips. Thanks!

    Thanks guys! Progress on the 39's wiring, let's show this with a before and after sequence..



    This car has the battery mounted behind the passenger seat, and the orange cable shown is the positive cable. (ground cable hidden above muffler) Both cables exit directly above muffler with not quite enough room for a good bend radius, as shown by the melted insulation.







    The other hoses shown are the heat and AC lines as that is also located behind the driver's seat. We relocated the battery cable entry points to in front of the muffler. The heat and AC lines were re-dressed and loop clamped to get them farther away from the muffler.. Rubber plugs were used to fill the old holes.














    This is the previous location of the fuse box (it's in there someplace)









    With the fuse box relocated under the dash, the floor area is cleared up with less chance of stepping on wires. The radio and antenna cabling will be routed into the glove box, the radio location.









    Previous underdash:









    Fabricated plate for mounting fuse box up under the dash..














    Steering knuckle sleeve weld...









    Despite grinding out the mud dauber's nest and wiping multiple times with acetone, we still got a pin hole in the weld. To limit damage (shrinking) from excessive heat we left it with the pin hole. Still much better than what was there prior.









    The links for the front sway bar as well as the radius arms had little left for bushings. The local auto parts store was not much help for replacement parts, so some delrin round stock was used to fabricate bushings.



















    The tag light insulator was hard plastic and brittle, so our attempts to install a longer wire for the light resulted in a broken insulator. More delrin to the rescue..























    Left to do is the front end/engine compartment and re-assembly.

    Good work Robert. Always...thanks for posting your pics and logic. It helps us learn.
    Question on the new fuse panel you wired up:
    I see you used the universal 4 fuse housing that get mounted tight to each other. Is there a plan for how to mark each fuse holder location so its obvious which fuse goes to which circuit?

    I can't be the only one wondering after following this thread for over 7 years. What the timeline for your beautiful work of art 55 Nomad to be rolling down the road for all to see?

    Nice work Robert. Didn't catch it first that you were working on a 39 Ford. I should have figured that out sooner from the pictures since I have been working on a 39 Ford Tudor for a while now.
