Cool

Hey joe, hows your project comming along? I put everything on the back burner for a while, at least till it warms up a bit, 40*+ would be nice! I have to notch the frame on my 37 Dodge for the MustangII Tie rod clearance and decide on which springs I will run. Right now its just to cold to think!

Things are going good on my boat. Just got a pile of minty NOS or original parts from ebay, the electrical is now sorted, and I have the interior gutted, cleaned and wiredbrushed. In the middle of taking the dash apart now to find out why the heater and fan don't work. Oh and I spent a few hours scrubbing and sanding a siezed emerg break assembly back to perfect working condition. Fun stuff :p

Still a long way from having it as clean as yours looks though...

No, didn't know about the inner fender bolts thing... I'm totally green at this, I'm learning by doing.

Just finished pulling most of the dash apart since I need to sand and paint in there anyway. lots of rust. Whoever had the car before me seemed to have the philosophy of, "if it starts smoking, cut the wires and let them hang" so theres a lot of mysterious stuff happening under the dash.

Dont suppose you have a picture of your fuse box do you?

I also have a short in the courtesy light circuit, blows the fuse instantly. Been thinking of buying a short finder but not sure how effective they are.

hey 327,

just as some general info my car came from arkansas, and the humidity down there totally rusted out all the electrical contacts iv,e done more scraping and cleaning of contacts than i care to mention. i also had a problem with my blower and after taking out all the inner fender bolts so i could get to the motor i pulled it and tested it on the battery it worked just fine. the problem was all the bad connections. anything that has a rusted connection just wont work right

the right thing for me to do is get a new harness but i hate to put everything back another step to get one

i'll try and get a pic of my fuse box for you tomorrow. i noticed a few sites listed here that have wiring dig. for our cars. also i got a booklet from the paddock that had the complete diagrams for my car. good luck let me know it you need anymore help chasing electrical gremlins iv'e got a lot of experience with them.
