Thanks - I'll keep tabs on how I do the other parts in case you are interested.

The more I knock off my "To-do" list the more that gets added

Very nice! Nothing wrong with overkill. And now those gaps in the tub frame finally have a purpose! ;-)

Thank you very much. And you are too kind!

Once this lighting is done I have to get the leaks sorted out. Oh and finish the tub work for the Puma seats - never ends!

Haha - I'm happy with how they filled them in actually. I bet Muc UK or someone could get a batch made that would fit perfectly for not much cost.

Well - after doing both sides I had a short from one of the thing gauge wires. So I took both looms out and redid both and used heat shrink and electrical tape to keep them better protected.


Changed the design so there are Philips head screws instead of a nut on one side:

Impossible to take a decent night pic with this iPhone but here are a couple to give a feel for what the interior looks like with the LED's on: Click image for larger version

I think once I add some more black to the interior it will calm the lighting down. With the galvy and Dynamat the lights get reflected a bunch.

Thanks! Hit me up whenever you want to check out in person. I think seeing the lights in person would give you some good ideas of what to do and not to do.

I cut down the original headliner and had it covered with black fabric. There was no room for a factory light setup so I found a pair of LED lights at West Marine. I used a toggle switch to turn on and off the negative supply when the doors are not open.

Overall pretty happy with how it came out although the wiring loom took forever!

Just read this entire thread. I have seen it pop up on "today's posts" a few times, but never committed to a read-through. Fantastic work. It should be re titled to "this is what 'Everything Done Right' looks like"

You are too kind! Thanks for the nice words but not everything is done right. There are some things I could have done better but it is all a learning process. I have some motor items to get done next and then I'll be driving it more frequently!

I was hoping to have started on the left side of the Puma seat conversion but had an issue with my M IP. Somehow a clip that controls the rack broke and the pump was stuck in the start position and want to run away! It sucked at the time but in a way I am glad it happened as I learned a bunch about the pump like how to take it out and installed (did that about 10x) and how to time it. Very happy with the performance but need to figure out why it vibrates so much at idle (guessing the injectors).

With that mostly out of the way, I've been picking away at the interior. I have another thread about how to convert a Tuffy from single DIN to double and I just got the box back from powder coating.

I ended up making a bracket out of 1" square that uses the same bolts as the transfer case cover and has M6 bolts welded into it so taking the Tuffy out should be easy when it is unlocked.

Pic of the bracket after welding:

If anyone cares here is where the C clip was broke on the Mercedes M IP that caused me a ton of issues:

Some wiring I've been doing in the seatbox. I bought a Blue Sea bus that has 2 zones. One 6 port zone will be 24H and the other 6 ports will be ignition on. This will feed the radio, seat heaters, rear locker (don't have a front one yet), lights on the front bumper and 12V power outlets. The 12V powers will be 24H so phones can charge while the 110 is off.

There are a lot of positive lines but I'll look for a battery with the extra posts the next time I need one.

That is an old hockey stick for the top of the battery hold down. The bottom is from plastic piece from West Marine and was ground down to fit the 110 box and hold the battery tight around the edge.

I also cut some radiator hose and ran the wires they them as cheap grommets.

The stock OM617 runs a MW pump. It has 5.5mm elements for each fuel delivery port. From what I understand it is difficult to get bigger elements or maybe more difficult to setup than the M Pump which was found on euro spec NA vehicles (again from what I believe). Robert I am sure knows more about it.

My M pump has 7.5mm elements which allows more fuel. I believe the M pump is also a simpler design. It is certainly smaller than a MW pump.

It's not cheap (around $1,500) but the increase in power is noticeable and I still have the stock turbo and don't have the IC setup yet. Output now should be around the 200 HP/LB-FT mark. Once the bigger Holset HX30 turbo and IC are done I want to get it on a dyno and see exactly what it is putting out.

I have still been working on the wiring of this thing. What a pain in the ass but I am pretty happy with it and have some extra fuses for any future add-ons.

In this bundle of wiring are lines for the heated seats (thanks for the loom Zack and Rovers North!), fuel pump, radio, rear lockers, backup camera, and USB and cig lighter power outlets.
