    The fuel pump/filter mount is done. Here’s a pic of the stock Volvo mount (that bolts up under the car) next to what I came up with. This tray tucks in next to the rear driveshaft and bolts to a plate that will be the frame-boxing in that section.

    The three outer holes accept rubber mounts that also clip into the inner mount that the pump and filter bolt to. That little hook is there to prevent the mounts from ripping loose in an impact or rollover.

    Mock up:

    My plan is to make a belly pan out of abrasion resistant plate that will come all the way back to the spring mounts, so this will be protected by that.
    Ya know... for those really tall speed bumps at Dairy Queen. :whistle:

    The plan as it stands today....
    1. Get it running.
    2. Thin the wiring.
    3. Reassemble.
    4. Finish building everything else.
    5. Completely disassemble for paint, seals, gaskets...

    Alternative step 5: Drive it and let it rust and leak.

    Rides are free, but you have to try my vegan jerky first.

    I feel like the finish line is starting to come into sight...and yet disassembly, final paint and clean-up and re-assembly is going to take some time...bet you can still be done by Moab weekend in 3 weeks.

    Oil filter is on, oil is new, fuel lines are in, vacuum lines are routed or capped, wiring is 90% hooked up. There are a few unknown connections that I’m going to have to dig through the schematic to figure out.

    In the 12(?) years I’ve been working on this, this is the first time I’ve felt overwhelmed. This wiring is daunting. Not the “where do the wires go” as much as the shear capacity of it all. Getting it thinned out and to all fit in a 3a without looking like a hack job is going to take some serious time and effort.
