Mounting new fuse panel

Post #1 by Jammer » Sat Jan 01, 2011 7:39 pm

As you guys know..I am installing a Ron Francis wiring harness in the 66 coupe. The previous wiring system was worse than I ever suspected. My fuse panel is about 2 x 4 x 2 in size and will not fit in the same place as the stock fuse panel. Before I make my permanent mouting, I thought I would as if anyone has replaced their fuse panel and where they put it

My current choice is on the inside firewall, directly behind the glove box. Easy access (through the box) and easiest to run all the terminals to. I am going to have to modify the cardboard glove box to fit it, but I that is not a big loss considering I have a full console.

Any suggestions....

Isn't the heater box behind the glove box and covering the firewall on that side? If you are thinking about mounting to the heater box I don't think that would be a good idea as it is fiberglass.

The area is above the heater box..its steel from the firewall...not fiberglass...

I ruled out behaind the kick panel for easy access as well as the relays wont allow the kick panel to sit flush to the inside steel.

Sorry...I posted the wrong picture. :bang:
The fuse panel in on the firewall. I changed the file name to show the correct pic. Might have to hit Ctrl+F5 to see the new pic

Thanks....I forgot to look up....

Great pic...I havent mounted it yet..so I will certainly mock this up and check for fit. I have completed all the wiring in the engine bay and trunk...and all of it run to the dash area. I have a few more weekends of work left.....

Watching the Rams now...and am hoping...but we are losing early...still hoping though.
