Post 1937 pontiac dimmer switch

I'm about to re-wire my '37 pontiac from original wiring to a new harness. Everything looks fairly do-able. I see only one (and this is before I have actually started) problem. It's the Dimmer switch on the floor - How do I access it to re-wire. I've crawled over and under, removed the floor plate under the clutch/brake/gas pedals. I do not see any way to remove or get to the wiring mechanism under the dimmer switch. Anyone out there know how to get to it? Also should I expect any other surprises on wiring the new harness?

I have a 36 and If I remember correctly it comes up through the toe board from the bottom. are you making it a street rod or restoring it? Mine is a street rod and when I rewired it put a 60's unit on top of the floorboard.

Hey, Bill

Mine is mounted from below with screws - fairly obvious ... so I'm not sure what's up with yours.

I just ordered and received a 21-circuit/18-fuse kit from EZ-Wire - <a href="http://www.ezwiring.com/" target="_blank">http://www.ezwiring.com/</a> - I also ordered a new dimmer switch and headlight switch to install at the same time. They don't include grounding wires, so I bought a roll of 12 gauge machine/tool wire from Home Depot for $7 (gas & oil resistant).

The kits wires are all color coded and labeled every 5 inches. Looks easy enough!

Good luck with yours, bro'!
