New Member - Wiring and Electrical Specialist

Hello I am Jon Pardue of Sarasota, Florida and I partcularly enjoy vehicle wiring. Professionally I have wired entire cars, built wiring and modded and carried out all sorts of custom work. If it requires circuits and wiring, I love it all. I'm also fortunate to drive some gorgeous machines and work on some unique rides.

Since I hand wired the first 50 Panoz Roadsters I was naturally the first person to ever start one of those cars in the summer of 1992. I like adapting things. Built some GM steering column wiper/cruise/headlight switch adapters that were sold by a commercial outfit. I designed a proprietary theft-deterrent system - the Valet-D - and it becomes unique on your car, using switches already in place to create your own custom starting sequence. These became available as on option on the original Panoz Roadsters, which in the '92 model had no top or door locks and a Mustand column and switch.

I have the Valet-D for sale as an entire business if someone wants a unique opportunity and I'll back it with my experience and input.

I love welding and have made lots of electronic circuits and so on. I have a background in photography and in drawing schematic diagrams and so forth. I like the Tig Welder project and would like to offer to contribute here when this group would like to see an easy-to-read schematic drawn up. I usually post in color PDF files and I am happy to offer my time to this forum if anyone would like my help. My current TIG is a HF inverter and its about to get modded to having a footpedal, gas solenoid and delay timer, HF starter and water-cooled torch. I can post results here as I make that happen if anyone has interest.

My 2 car garage is crammed pretty full, mill/lathe, tig, DC stick, torches, powder coater, drill press, grinders, buffers, band saw, hand tools, power tools galore. And oh wow at the parts.

I draw printed circuit boards on the computer, print them to transfer stock, iron to copper coated blank boards, etch, drill, and make printed circuit boards for one-offs and so on.

Love to figure out digital engine swaps and testers for electrical bits.

Thanks for adding me to the forum.

Jon Pardue

Welcome to the site ElegantInventor. Sounds like you will be a help answering a few questions on this board. I am sure the guys looking at building their own TIGs will be happy to see what you are doing. How about posting some pics of your shop and your ride. Here is link to a thread on members shops:
