I've never been good at following instructions, that's why my Goblin build went off the rails and I have a frame, suspension, and driveline that don't conform with the 'standard' Goblin. Highly doubt my build will be completed by then, but everyone is welcome to visit my garage for chat and some story telling. Shoot me a PM when you get ready for your trip to Globe. Plenty of great places to eat in Queen Creek and Apache Junction.DS and Scott, Thank You for coming to my aid, I Am Really sure GobFanClub was only joking!!! Well ain't you a lucky bunch of Lug Nuts! Because I ain't likely disuaded from anything by negative comments from others! I'm 60 y/o, I've heard them all! I've built a parade float platform and a camera vehicle out of junk cars. I've kept my own junk on the road day to day for 30 years. AND my accomplice "The Farmer" makes me look like a piker! He's built and won Tractor pulls, Demo derbies and dirt track low buck near demo derby racing. The Farmer "body dropped"(I helped) a 55 Olds 2 door on a 85 Caprice chassis for a Delta Airline pilot. That Delta Pilot then proceeded to drive it virtually everyday and just about anywhere, towing his motorcycle on a trailer.(his budget was the list price of a new 1991 Hyundai) His furthest vacation drive was Atlanta to Fairbanks AK.(w/ trailer)The Olds took the ferry from Seattle to Anchorage. My feelings are teflon coated and bomb proof, naysayer's are wasting THEIR time, not mine. They(NOT YOU GFC!) are only telling me what THEY cannot imagine or cannot do. I've never understood why they would find it so important to tell everyone how shallow, unimaginative, ineffectual, impotent and truly callow they are? Mebbe they're looking for my sympathy? Hey All, Look at my Sig, it shows I'm crazy! (Following is a Private Message for DS, everyone else: Do Not Read!) We'll be in Globe for a week tween turkey day and Christmas, AHHH, Tamale Days! I sure hope we can get together! Now you have a Goblin Deadline!(to everyone else still reading: this is exactly why you had trouble in your build, can't you read and follow directions?)
You should have taken that box of wires I have.Stretching the engine harness from the fuse box to the rear of the car is a daunting task. Just collecting enough wire in similar colors and appropriate gauges is a chore! As you well know contigious colors make troubleshooting easier and more reliable. Wire count to follow. I had considered following DF's lead and just putting the fuse box in back but I am keeping the entire car's other systems in tact.
