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

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.

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

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?

Wow, Nice metal work!


...I recently restored the dealer plate from where my car was originally purchased. I made a 'how to' tutorial and it is posted: HERE

These are so nice! Very well done. Where did you source the short velocity stacks, or are they custom as well?
