Dip it

I have to say that I am impressed with Tool Dip It in a spray can. I'm feeling pretty waterproof with spraying it on electrical connections. Rubberized pretty good after a coat or two. I have also done the ecu but to overkill things, I found a plastic supplier that gave me all the scrap lexan I wanted for twenty bucks. I relocated it higher and made a clear waterproof box for it that is practically break proof.

I finished completely sealing the distributor and running two small sections of hard plastic tubing through the cap on the sides. I'm pushing vacuum through it at all times running.

Think I'm almost ready to dunk her.
No more fan either.

Shrouded aluminum radiator with electric and kill switch.

Going to take care of the fuse panel and the coil on Saturday.

You are putting a vaccuum on the distributor cap?

I'll try to do that. I'm not trying to build a boat, but I would like to get it pretty deep close to home so that I can fix anything I have missed. I just am trying to build the thing to be ready for whatever happens.

running constant vac through it from the brake booster to eliminate condensation buildup from the unit being completely sealed
