    I see you have a Willys that someone added power steering. If pump mounting become a pain in the a_s like mine did put a Volvo electric PS pump in. I put one in mine and love it. I actually have an extra one if you need help.

    He ran a ground wire to the battery box bolt that grounds the body, then a ground wire to the frame, then from there to the engine, so anywhere on the body,frame or engine there is always ground, and he made it so you can't see any ground wires unless you look hard for them.

    That is a neat scheme.

    It doesn't look like he cleaned paint off the battery box or off the underside of the tub, so he is using the bolt as a feed through conductor. His actual frame ground is probably a cleaned off place on that bracket where the tub mounts.

    That's good because you've not removed paint in areas where you could have corrosion start.

    He's done this before ...

    I like his attention to detail. Very nice! You can never have enough grounds..... Except on an aluminum end dump hauling road salt.... The lights would start to act up, and you had to go around and clean all the grounds going to the steel chassis to remove the corrosion. You'll never see salt on purpose, so you'll be just fine.

    I put weld in threaded inserts everywhere on the tub and the frame and he’s using the bolts to conduct the ground, he’s just putting longer bolts and nuts on them to fasten the ground wires.
    He’s a smart cookie for sure and your right this isn’t his first wiring job!!!

    OK -that's the last part of the story we couldn't see. I had wondered how the bolts were going to make a ground to the tub through those painted surfaces - but the welded inserts make it clear. Nice job of planning!
