Back at it. A little cool to start, a little rain, but an overall good day.
I had not finished the latch on the trunk. I cut a piece of 18 ga. and welded it in place.
I had originally planned using LED bolts to hold the tag on with a third brake light in the back window. After thinking about it, I decided to get a plate frame with a self-contained tag light and third brake light. Stainless steel oval headed Phillips 1/4" x 20 machine screws will hold it in place.
First nice Saturday in a long time. Got the wife's tiller operational. She is going to put in a garden. Tiller sat 7 years without use but with gas. What a mess. Cleaned the carb and the tank. Replaced the fuel line and tank grommet. Put slime in the tire that always goes flat.
Also slimed two of the riding mower tires and charged the battery.
Finally did get to work on the 41. Added the wire for a light in the trunk. Put the wiring harness back in the car. Ready to wire the back-up lights, tag light, and third brake light.
Warm today. Cold front came through. Probably the last warm day for a while.
Made the negative battery cable which will go from the box to the frame rail. Also crimped the solenoid end of the positive cable in place. Holes were drilled for the strain reliefs. The battery end will be crimped on once I have a battery in order to assure correct length.
I also drilled the holes for the back up lights. It will probably be the end of the month before I can work on it again. I will wire the back up lights, third brake light, and tag light next work session.
