Yeah, chrome (stainless) accents always set off a vehicle.

Some of the import stuff I used to play with, folks install later model dash clusters and such sometimes, and I often wondered how do you get an electric speedo to run off of a cable drive.  Now I know.

Any more on the Line-x?

I've called and left messages twice with Corporate Line-X...No call back.  And the Local Line-X dealer who did the crappy job, has refused to call me, unless I call him first.

So I guess it's time to start my on-line negative PR campaign.

Wish I could find a set of full wheel opening moulding for this style of truck...but don't think they ever made them?

I would even use a set  from another make, ford, chev etc...if I could make them work.

Glad you learned something new.  I had to learn all this myself.

They shut the power off in my neighbourhood today....Hydro upgrades.  So I took the opportunity to build my Headlight relay system.

Now my donor 93 for my crewcab was a Canadian truck, so it came with DRL (Daytime Running Lights).  So I had to use a different wiring schematic.  

I used this one written up by Jim Lane over on the DTR....

Unfortunately there are a few bugs to work out.  DRL don't work, and the High beam indicator on the dash stays on all the time.
