I busted out my table saw and sliding miter saw, and a piece of Oak and made a shroud for some 12 volt halogen lights.

I have a bunch of LED's but for some things, they are just not bright enough, and I am designing this light to be movable and on a long enough adjustable arm to be pointed anywhere in my Van.

I still have to recess the lights and make the frame to hold them in. It will be sanded, stained and polyurethaned, eventually.

Went to the only salvage yard in Plano, Texas. Muddy, cold and I was escorted on my entire patrol by a small pitbull (he was kinda cool, just followed me around the whole time). Anyway, a big nada; lots of Chevys and Fords, very few Dodges and no Dodge mids.

It's what you learn after you know it all, that counts...

Yep, a box that plugs in between the column harness and chassis harness.

So the column came with the box? I thought I had a column, was going to drive there tomorrow and now they say they don't have it. I posted in the wanted section. I am still a newbie this isn't hijacking a thread is it?

Just drove around the area...bought some gas. Nice day, just a bit chilly(35-40). Happier than a pig in sh*t! Nothing else as far as maintenance or repairs to do until spring.I hope! smile
Just expect to go on some short hops (50-125 miles) out to Long Island during the winter..but that's all.

Went in the garage today and van was still there. Haven't drove that one in over 6 weeks and that was just to the auto parts store to buy a water pump for the other one.
