02-22-2011 07:39 PM Ladies and Gentlemen, it's SHOWTIME!!!
I've got clean jeans, favorite car t-shirts, socks and underwear packed, the roadster is clean, tucked in the trailer and strapped down. The rusty old Chevy pickup is insured and hitched up, trailer lights and brakes checked, spare tire in the back aired up. Cell phone, camera, and Tom Tom charged, and directions in hand. I'm ready for Cobo Hall, Baby!

02-04-2011 07:07 PM Wiring 101, the saga continues.
I got the PCM for the 6.0 back today and with information from guy who reprogrammed it, got the harness modified to work with my trans. Hopefully...

It's like black box stuff to me, I can only hope I've followed the schematics (which are a little difficult for a novice to decifer) and done all the modifications correctly.

01-24-2011 07:12 PM Got my wires crossed...
I knew it was coming, and it did. First (that I've found yet) error with the wiring harness in the Diamond T. A simple matter of mis labeling the wiring in the old Guide turn signal switch I used. I didn't have a tracer code for the ancient (but intact) linen wrapped wire, and switched the brake light feed and flasher lead. This of course resulted in no brake lights, and non functioning blinkers. Oh well, it was an easy fix. Let's hope this is the worst issue I have!

Keep up with all the exciting action, goofy mistakes and small triumphs in the build on my blog @:

01-13-2011 05:05 PM Making trim for the Diamond T
What to do when original, impossible to replace, trim pieces are so rusty and fragile they can't be plated? Make replacements from aluminum bar stock, that's what! This was dirt cheap, worked out beautifully, and I did it myself, the best part.
