    SMH = Shaking My Head. I had to ask my kid same thing first time he sent it to me. Lol

    Talked to the wife. She's up for cooking some hamburgers & hot dog's on the grill weather permitting.

    Wow, seems like I would have run across that one before! Good one!

    Sounds wonderful, I know ORF will be in for that!!! But I have to remind everyone reading this, that
    we are a several weeks from having the cookout. Just trying to be realist! There are many details to
    work out. My goal is to make a trip to your house productive, several details to cover yet.

    I love joking around with people, but I'm also a realist when it comes to predicting a timeline.

    I'm sooo happy that you going to let us help you finish the car!! It's much more fun working on
    someone else's car!!!

    Actually I needed this project, I was having a hard time getting into the garage today .... we all
    need motivation!

    Time for me to hit the sack now, talk to you tomorrow if you are still reading.

    I am by no means in a hurry. It's sat for 4 months now without so much as a dusting off. Just talking about it has helped some. I also realized that I need to get the seat riser bonded in before the wiring goes in. Fuse box will mount to the back side and wires will go through the hole I drilled into the center divider.

    If it's cold, raining, or snowing we will adjust the menu accordingly. Wife makes a mean pot of taco soup and I have heat for the garage. We will overcome & adapt.

    Good, we need to have as much figured out before we get together.

    Some pics of the situation would be helpful.... Holes in the frame locations etc.

    I pretty much eat anything and love Mexican food !

    - Do you have all the switches that are included in the wiring harness, such as dimmer switch, headlight switch, ignition switch?
    - Have you decided how you want to run the wires to the dash? Will they stay inside and under the carpet?
    - How will the wires get to the taillights? Inside the frame or outside?
    - Is there a hole in the floor yet to get wires into the frame? If not, then where will it go? How big?

    Jet,

    Before we go much further, you should start a new build thread for the wiring project and answer my questions above.

    I would suggest this section.
    Electrics

    I agree. Ending this thread now and moving on to electrics.

    Car is no longer for sale. I appreciate the understanding of those that had enquired about the car and also the encouragement to finish it.

    Thank you!
    Jim
