i must admit some of my best work is done by others.....little Joe, he is actually too big to fit in the coupe.

so now all the parts I took off the car are back on. i still have to do the furlflex door trim and the chrome around the windows, and finish the driving lights

fitting the inner splash guard panels

what the hell, i haven't tempted the gods lately, well except for buying some new wheels for the corvette in the direct line of sight of the boss.....yikes i was daring.... although it turned out better then i thought just a lot of eye rolling and disbelief. but i digress....

lets warm these up some to help the drying process so i can install them on saturday, looks like i need to clean the oven too.

so the idea is that this light circuit will be completely separate from my new wiring harness. i have a new front bumper for the car and when I go to sell the car the bumper will go with the car. so if the next guy doesn't like the lights all he has to do is remove my light wiring and the lights and hes good to go. i will mount the swicth on the dash panel lower support bracket and the relay will be mounted to the same switch panel. should work nicely.











of course a bracket needs to be made











lets clean up the wires so they are nice and neat


and done for the day relocated the relay with a tie strap to get the wires up and out of sight, you dont hit this with your knee not even close

I think these Hellas use more amps then my generator can supply, the supply wires are going right to the main positive battery connection. so when the smoke escapes its not frying my new wiring harness

There was a light bar that was called a laser - it came completely with 15 halogen 'aircraft landing lights'. A friend of mine bought it and put it on his 4 cyl. toyota 4x4. He was so proud when turned the lights on. It worked for maybe 10 seconds before the battery died. We charged the battery, fired up the truck and he proudly proclaimed this would work.... turned on the light and the motor stopped like it had water in. Of course, the battery hadn't recovered from the last assault, so it had to charge again. He got it started again, then figured RPM would be his hero.... nope, pulled the thing down like it was on a dyno..... though that time it took the alternator with it. We, being the friends we were, didn't have any comment because we were laughing so hard we could barely breath let alone talk.
