AUX. fan interrupt switch

the haltech ems will be controlling my AUX. cooling fan, since i deleted the mechanical clutch fan. here are a few shots of the wiring and switch. the led indicator gave me a fit acting as a diode while the switch was wired to the negative. a little tweaking gave me the following:

  • switch:
    1. Blk wire = ground
    2. grey/red = signal plus jumper to Negative side of led
  • led:
    1. white = jumper mentioned above.
    2. orange = 12v on or acc. wirephoto

monte carlo

the original 4-spoke alpina wheel had severe dry rotting and cracking, i opted to go with the momo monte carlo for the period correct look and its one of my favorites anyway. its also a little smaller.

shifter

was also able to grab this gem from HB, perhaps the last NOS shift knob. took some modding to fit my custom linkage*

*e36  rogue engineering lower shifter with custom lever. also made solid aluminum shifter mounts and converted the 265 trans linkage to the wider knuckle which involved creating a new link, all of which got new bushings and rubber.
