  • I hate fixing screwed up wiring. I'd rather install a whole new wiring harness kit than try to make those uglies work.

      unfortunately, I'm stuck with the problem, you see - it wasn't the wiring that messed up.

      that said, even in here I can make it look like not a screwup... you see, there's a Defender 110 coming into my life quite soon - and being able to (safely) let the smoke out is a good talent to have.

                • re: FITech ... I don't think I can edit the "Oh Shit" out of this reply so I'll just leave it here.

                  I hope they had a couple of diodes inside that thing that blow up instead of fragging everything in sight. I'd be surprised if they didn't have at least some reverse polarity protection in it. Have you called them yet?

                    email, I'll call later if I don't hear from them (they're pretty good at responding). hopefully I can just buy a board and replace it (rather then sending it to them)...

                    yeah, bad words, I said a few and I don't think I'm done saying them... at least it didn't fry my ignition system...


                    an interesting aside in all of this.... getting the fan off the other, new alternator took a puller - meaning there is no way that one had come completely apart, the new one (a Napa) came off easily.

                    • Bummer. That hurts when setbacks happen, but the more expensive they are, the more painful.

                      • $234 for a new board from FiTech - and y'all will get to see a how-to on replacing the board...apparently my replacement of the injectors on my other FiTech was good practice for what is coming...

                        • onward
                          time to prep to put the glass back in






                          that would be great if I wasn't checking brake lights...


                          speaking of brakes, need to take an 1/8" off this

                          • oh look, glass


                            a glass guy taught me this - it works quite well at getting full adhesion because it makes a triangle on the rail

                            now glued in

                            looks like a black Corvette





                            my cheap camera hates this car....

                            painting a lot of misc. parts

                            hmmm... wires....

                            it was a broken one
                            would you look at that... brake lights... all of them

                            and license plate lights... because, well, legalities

                            • these might end up as front signals




                              oh good grief

                              these are supposed to fit the C3 light bucket.


                              uh no


                              with that fail, time to fix the brakes

                              first trim the spacer down


                              tight without hanging the brakes


                              then finally hood pins

                              took way longer then it should have


                              but got a start on the steering column
