09-18-2010 10:24 PM Wiring the Passenger Door
I have to look at the wire loom episode not as a failure. I identified one way which would not work for passing the wires to the door.

I did get the relays for the passenger door window wired up. There are five relays because there will be a switch on the dash so the driver can roll the passenger door window up and down. It will override the door switch.

The door switch holes were drilled and the switch was mounted. The five relays were mounted low in the door. A Weatherpack was installed between the relays and the motor.

Still to do. Power window circuit power wire needs to be attached to the first relay. The two wires from the dash switch needs to be connected to the relays. A ground stud needs to be attached to the inside of the door.

09-18-2010 10:11 PM All Dressed Up With No Where To Go
Back from China and back to work.

I made an attempt to put the braided stainless steel wire looms on the door. I had to make a support to make it so the nut would tighten. After I got it all assembled, the door went back on the car. It was then I found out this wouldn't work. The door on the 41 closes in instead of around. Closing the door ended up crushing the hose. I would have had to push the hose every time I closed the door and even then it would not have lasted long.

I will have to figure a better way to pass the wires to the door. In the meantime, I have two new holes to fill.

Finished the grinding tonight. There are no visible holes. I may do a dye pen test to verify it is completely welded.

Used a license plate to mark the bottom two holes. Drilled them. Test fit the bolt/lights. No photo, but all the bullet connectors are on the bolt/lights. Still have to wire the trunk lid.

I was hoping to get it done tonight after work. Almost made it. I probably still have pin holes to fill. Welding and grinding.

I got a killer deal on an AutoLock frenching kit due to the fact it had surface rust. It was still sealed in the packaging, so they must have forgot to put the silica gel pack in before they sealed it. Anyway, a little elbow grease and a dip in phosphoric acid and it was good to go. I had to cut it down quite a bit. It was originally 2 inches deep all the way around.
There is nothing as exciting as cutting up a NOS Buick trunk lid! The opening was cut slightly smaller than the box. The bottom line was cut right on the desired line to act as a locater for the rest of the cuts once the box was in position. The inner bracing was cut out. The opening was then cut until it was almost big enough with final grinding to the inside surface of the box.
When I took the last photo I was wishing this was the end. Unfortunately, it has to be welded. I was going to show some in-process welds. After putting them in I decided it would be best to just show the finished product!
