I drive my van every Wednesday for 4 hours on my paper route. This week I swapped the stock radio for another one that had both channels working. AHHHHH that sweet stereo sound... Aaaaaand I tried (unsuccessfully at that) to fix a windshield leak. Yep, it's a Chevy alright. I can stick my finger in the hole I found. I guess I just need to administer more roof patch. More is better right? lol

washed it finally, 1080 miles and 18 quarts of oil blown through splattered all over the van, used an entire bottle of simple green diluted enough to be paint safe. Took the battery to auto zone to get charged up. I think the battery is on its last legs. Gotta hook up the trailer and get a washer/dryer tomorrow.

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

it's super slim, and has a row of LED lights on each side of the fan.

I just found an 82' tilt column with pulse wipers, was the pulse just a plug in for you?


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?

Let there be light!

I made a faceplate yesterday. Practice. You can see it on left.
Made a thicker one today.

I used an old clamp on spotlight with the adjusto arm hardware on a rusty old 1$ home depot clamp, and used a ciggy plug, for now.

Superbrite spotlight I can easily reach and point anywhere in the Van from the roof, Or I can unclamp and relocate it.

A little final sanding, staining and polyurethane might occur in the near future, or it might not.
Here it is clamped on the tongs which hold my roof fans to the ceiling.
