Ron, where and how does all the wiring run to all your overhead consoles?

Two wiring harnesses, one for the heads up which runs along the top of the door jam down the side
then into the rear compartment, sending unit wiring goes through the bulkhead into the engine compartment.
On the passenger side, goes a similar route, catching the ECU for AFR and a Fuel pressure sender in the
engine bay. All good fun, esp. when something fails you you have to debug it :wink:

Thanks everyone for answering my questions.

Ron, how does your front overhead console attach to the K body?

Sheet metal screws, there are a number of "cavities" over head that can
take a screw and not break through to the open air -- so to speak. Kind'a
works out OK, but it's not designed for easy access. If I were to do this
over, first go Aluminum for reduced weight, then design in a hinged
mounting frame with 1/2 twist locks for easy access and future mods.

Mule did some, not all of the work. The overhead console we fabbed at my place and a buddy finish assembled and rhino lined it.

Trying to keep everything 24v (winch and cb) but I needed a USB plug. Found this Powerwerks 24v 4.2amp plug and installed it as inconspicuously as I could as I'm trying to retain the military look. Good plug that charges galaxy 7 very quickly and was apx. $25.

Oh man, I wish I'd not seen that. I didn't know they made an OLED volt gauge! On my "must buy, you have no choice" list now. :?
