    Looks great! I like how you have set up the supply. With the size of fuel line, you could feed a big block....

    The Sniper needs a size -6AN line which is 3/8 and it needs 58.5 lbs of pressure to it. I didn’t have to put a regulator in-line bc the Sniper has it built in.
    All that’s left is to get the motor/tranny bolted in and a roll cage built then I can send the tub out to get powder coated.
    There’s light at the end of the tunnel and I’m hoping it’s not a freight train

    I'm curious to see the Sniper system at work. I want to something similar to the wagon.

    I talked to Jay at “Willy’s Overland” yesterday and he wants me to drive it to Toledo in August to the Jeep Rally there having.
    I told him if it’s done I might trailer it to Toledo, 2 hours is a long way with no top. The last time I went to Toledo was when I bought the body and it rained all the way home!!!

    A very good friend of mine insists that he is going to haul the '48 over to Toledo in his new car carrier trailer. (I suspect he wants to make a road trip with it). But - I have to bring it home on Sunday.

    Like you, it's only about 2 hours and at least I'll have a roof over my head. Now, will the wipers work and is the windshield leak really fixed?

    I had already been at work for over an hour by that time. With twelve hours in now, it's about time to head for the house. Great deal to show off your ride!

    Got my windsheild frame back from the powdercoater yesterday and starting the "Nightmare" of wiring the beast this weekend.
    Hopefully the "Painless Performance" wiring harness i bought will make it a little less painful!!!!IMG_0213.jpgIMG_0214.jpg58007209408__CF0F3560-15E9-4BF6-B1C7-791F8C175340.jpg58007212380__2D758585-A1E2-4116-B7FF-F4FE6F235D4B.jpg58007623755__3083A7E5-E3F0-4EA9-8B36-6D9BF096E78B.jpg

    The worst part is getting contorted to being able to get arms and at least one eye back behind the dash to run the wires. It is coming along nicely! The windshield frame came out really well!

    I will admit their harness is pretty idiot proof, they have each section wire tied together telling you if it goes to the dash,tail end, grille, or engine compartment and every wire is labeled from one end to the other telling you what it runs and they are all numbered.
    I think I’m going to try and run everything in 1/2” and 5/8” aluminum tubing so when you open the hood you won’t see any wires and plug everything into the steel box I made on the firewall with AN bulkhead fittings.
    We’ll see how that goes.
