Small update
 
I am starting to work on the console now.  I can just shrink the old one and rewrap it.

I have to find an appropriate box first
 
I'll ship everything I can.
 
The main box, I have a brand new blower for it, controls, pooter,
 
I have some of the hoses for it.  You can get the wiring and instructions on line at Vintage air
 
Your cost will be UPS to Leaburns drop spot in NY.  Then he'll smuggle it over, so you'll have to pay him.  OR!  If you have a drop spot in the US, give me the address.
 
So your cost will be shipping and a buck 360.  LOL

I'm working on the console.  Haven't been around during the day and it's been raining at night so I haven't done much other than some badly needed service on my truck

When are you going to wire a 2X4 to the gas pedal so you can control it a little bit better than with just your toes?

Best way to do it is to start with a wiring diagram from a vehicle (any vehicle), which has the headlights with LED lights, then identify all the relays, where it connects to this and that, and simply take the existing wiring and change it all out.

For HID you need to relay.  For LED, you shouldn't have to do anyting but connect to the circuit.  The draw allor less

My short is back. I'll have to pull the lower bezel and find it this time. No clue what it is. The car can go for a week or two and then drain the battery to stone dead in 8 hours. I have it isolated to the cars factory harness. Most everything else has been rewired. I thought it was the clock. But after pulling the plug, apparently not. There;s 4 feeds off the charging circut to the body. Plus I have two of my own feeders. I think it's something in the door light circuit now. In order to get my head liner lights to work, I have to use a relay. Seems to be an issue when I move the harness around behind the kick panel.
