Worked a little on my Ford.
Repaired an exhaust leak on the AIR tube to the cat converter.
Rearranged the wiring for the Sun gauges.
Left to finish:
Change the Aux battery over from relay to isolator and add an inside volt meter for the Aux circuit.
Redo the controls for the cooling fans to add monitoring lights (green LED for on, red for fail, etc.) and rework the driving lights and fog light controls.
And I'm gonna change out the condenser fans and grille while it's in the garage.

So the dash wiring and the under hood wiring is all over the place and I'm at that point where you say, "why the hell did I start this"?
But it'll be better when it's finished.

Walked by her in the garage and sighed.

Oh and Dodge's don't have interior door handles either. At least mine never did.

Wonder what years Dodge started putting rear door interior openers. My '89 has one. Good thing too, otherwise I do not know how I would have opened the door when I removed the handle to refab the spring and the wind got a hold of the door and closed it.

I think I might install a Magnefine inline magnetic transmission filter today.

I opened the back doors and put some stuff in it for storage after cleaning out the neighbors shed [my overflow storage]. They're snowbirds from Mass and will be here next week until spring so I didn't want to impose while they're here.

I also hit the glow plugs for 8 seconds and cranked to her up for a little ride down the road to the beach access area and back smile
