Looks great! Was thinking of doing main shut off in my build. We have them on the big trucks I work on here at work. Can't wait to see it on the road.

Well, got my windshield wiper installed today and spent a few hours figuring out the door latch realeases and handles. Decided to keep it simple. I had ordered some locar release cables and I had some old broken 9/16" wrenches lying around. One had been cut larger for 5/8 so it wasnt too good anymore and the other had opened up from use so it's not like they were good for anything else. I welded the old snapon one to a 3/8 bolt and the proto to a nut. Drilled a 1/4" hole in the inner handle and attached the cable end to it. Had to drill and tap a 1/4" hole for a handle stop and install a return spring to the latch assembly and it all works flawlessly. Tomorrow I'll work on the passenger side and if I have time work on my throttle cable. I switched gears on the throttle pedal as what I had planned on using was a bit too bulky even for my smaller feet. I'll post up pictures of that when I get around to it. Anyway, here are some pictures of todays progress.

"Less complicated". Is that what you said?

Looks good, though.

You can open the door with your foot when loading groceries like on the mini vans
Good job on the cable routing

I meant the handle portion. Figured it would be less complex having both an inner and outer handle controlling seperate cables.

I didn't think about but I've gotta say that I like the idea.

I do like that touch. Who would look for a door handle there?

New gas pedal is mostly installed(need to get one more 1/4-20 threadsert), throttle cable is ran, and cable bracket made. Checked to make sure I had idle and full throttle and she should be good to go. So ready to roll this old gal out the door for a cruise. Just a lot of little stuff left.

New pedal.




Where the cable comes through the firewall.


The throttle cable bracket.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
