And I've been thinking of renaming the project from The Sheriff to Time Bandit.

I've asked around a bit for the locations of the grounds and no one seems to know.  I realize the FSM lists them.  But lets take the one for the dash, it states left cowl.  Hmmmm that's an aweful big area to check for a ground no?  I was told also check behind the kick panels in front.  Not one there as far as I can find.    And to be honest, it'd be easier for me just to go through it and add new grounds to everything at this point. 

However I fugged with it a bit during lunch again and the right indicator lights up when the lights are turned on.  But I noticed today it comes on very faint then roughly 1.5 seconds later it brightens up.  I wonder if the turn signal flasher is bad.  It is factory.  Also a nice bonus for todays effort, when the lights are on the temp gauge pegs and the fuel gauge goes to half way.  Now I've had issues with  the temp gauge as noted before.  Also the right indicator always came on with the key.  Now it only comes on until the lights are on, though brighter than prior to replacing the fuse panel.  Also as you can see the dash lights are actually visible.


*edit*
Oh yeah forgot to add, the flasher only wigwags when the lights are on.

Somewhere a ground for the lights is loose, and is looking for ground where ever it can find it.  I agree with adding new grounds over going on a grand search for them.

Also, have a look at the stop and turn bulbs.  Sometimes a dual filament bulb can fail and one of the filaments can cross over to the other one and create all kinds of interesting behaviors.

I forget.  Does that have the indirect lighting like the Plymouth?  Or are the bulbs in the back like usual?

Welp the bare metal was covered in a caot of epoxy primer for the rest
of the winter.  Not too bad.  It showed me some issues I still need to
work on but I'm happy where it's going so far.

The interior panel ready to be welded back in.






The reason...  Cut it out so I could get behind it to plannish the weld.  It allowed me to bring the low spots up really nicely.

thx gentlemen.  It's a long way still to go.  I saw some spots when spraying that made me think I should go buy that 30" durablock long board.  I thought the 24" would be able to pull the job off but I guess not.   Or at least not with my skill level.  Was the juice worth the sqeeze?  Oh I don't know.  I think the knowledge earned was. 

 And I'm, behind on the winters project of getting the trans rebuilt.  To be honest I'm waiting on my bonus to be able to afford the rebuild kit.

Welp I had to move it today in order to work on the trucks exhaust.  So
 I took the chance to take a pic of it where it rarely gets to, the road... 
Hopefully it'll be back on the road soon.
