03-20-2011 06:41 AM Trunk Latch / Tag Frame
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.

Sorry. Still no photos. Got the backup lights wired.

Next will be the license plate frame with the built in tag light and third brake light. I will make sense to photo that. Maybe tomorrow. Saturday for sure.

Sorry, no photos.

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.

12-31-2010 10:45 PM Batt Cables and Back Up Lights
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.

12-28-2010 07:36 PM Battery Box Lid
It was a little warmer today. Think it got up to 50 or so.

A piece of flat steel was cut out a little bit larger than needed. The step around the outside and the beads were laid out. My wife helped me roll it.

In my concern to make it small enough to fit, I ended up forgetting that the rounded corners might leave gaps. I will have to weld in fillets so the lid will completely cover the hole.

Dzus fasteners were located and installed. I will probably weld the spring brackets in. For now, they are held on with pop rivets.

There is one small tear in the step that will need to be welded. Other than that, the lid is done. It is not perfect. But it is functional and will eventually be covered with carpet.
