Looks nice! Is she painted Royal Red? I have a '70 square in the same color and planned on adding lights in a little bit. What did you do for the switch?

Took a few years......as that never happens Rolling Eyes but finally have installed and hooked up the Fog Lights The Dame needed since we got her. They look right and can't wait to try them out on the road. It's wet and cold at the moment and still need to put the interior back so just the garage shots.

One major note, if it were not for good friends this would not have gotten done as i am clueless when it comes to wiring Smile

Well i was trying to upload a video of my gauge showing the turn signals blinking independently but the file is to large. My description will have to suffice. So i separated the indicators on the gauge to blink when turning right or left.

Let the purists rumble.

It all started because I just bought the car and the indictor lights would blink once then nothing. So while i was in there I decided to play around a bit.


You tube video? If not, maybe the way to go, then link it here.

It was sort of a Tom Sawyer situation. I convinced them it would be an adventure-which it was. And I bought them a good lunch afterwards. Very Happy

I needed the pan (or remnants thereof) to duplicate Pieter's solution:

Very cool rotisserie. It's been a while since I've used one, and it was for a Trans Am.
Looks like an interesting project though. Good luck with it. Cool

Went with a small group of friends to visit type 3 Heaven. I call it that because the owner had a great supply of parts back in the day, heís in his 80s now and still getting around. Our goal was to get a pan to use in making a rotisserie. Hereís a few random pictures in no particular order and a good time was had by all.

I've been cleaning rear seats and prepping for recovering front seats.

I found a couple of inspection tags on the backs of two seats. Neat!

test fitting the Subaru EJ22 engine with adapter plate to measure out the engine support bar and trimming up the donor sheet metal to repair around the factory engine lid a previous owner cut out. Type 3 interior is starting to get planned out as well now that i have a proper sewing machine for it.
