After a 5-day 7-330 work week,
it's great to sleep in and just lay around.
as I'll search Craigslist and Ebay a bit too thoroughly.
Get me a project!
One weekend goal was to fix some electrical gremlins in the new truck,
hopefully caused by the overzealous use of crappy wiring techniques.
I wired our old 30 coupe with all black wires.
It looked cool but the next owner hated me!
This guy used yellow and red for both positive and negative/ground.
Ok let me clarify that...
He ran two yellow wires as +/- for the fog lights,
and two red wires for +/- for the running board lights.
After an hour this 100' wire pile was tediously extracted.
Perfect cause I needed speaker wire for the new shop sound system.
Free thumpin' Craigslist speakers!
Still didn't fix the windshield wiper glitch...
Another small annoyance was the running boards.
They were held on with sheetmetal screws,
swinging back and forth when I'd chip ice off the windshield.
It was like slack-lining.
an eBay guy shipped me just what I needed,
in a box the size of an upright piano.
at least I can easily reach the hidden hood latch.
By the way,
the '87-91 years are called bricknose,
the earlier models are called bullnose.
You'd be surprised how flimsy that guard and bumper are.
It's definitely a princess.
or aluminum with the round holes,
although it won't look as fast when parked.
