I investigated why my High beams no longer functioned.

When I disconnected the Dimmer switch, I knew I was onto something.

All fixed now.

Also installed a new ignition switch.

And now that the motor is broken in and my leaks have been resolved, I put the engine cover back on and built a new drink tray. The engine cover was smoothed and the ashtray shaved.

The dash is done, except for the new radio mount. That'll come later.
Also put a new shifter handle on.

Unfortunately nothing. Getting ready to drop $999 on the Mule (my 96 Villager) to get it back on the road (AC compressor was dead). That'll eat up my potential toy budget for a while.


If your gonna do it, do it in a Big Green Van!

It was an extreme struggle for me. I still feel I screwed up the whole look of the van by putting them back on, but I suppose it beats sitting under bridges waiting for a storm to pass.
