Strange.. My van only had dome light switches on the front 2 doors originally no way to turn them off... This new switch is just 2 wires and (while I haven't actually done it yet) should be able to patch right into the existing wire under the dash..

I'll snap a pic of it tonight when i hit the garage trying to button up my one s10 before i tear into the van, but i already sorta started with removing the fuel tank and such. I'm thinking because mines a passenger van not a cargo it was added.

Thanks everyone! Thanks Scott! I'm hoping I can collect a few trophies over the years! We'll see!


Last night, we got the main wiring harness going to the overhead console finished up and I installed it over the headliner and down the wall behind the driver's door. Lots more wiring to do, but that was a big chunk!

Then I went inside and helped the wife install the finished seat skins on the bottom cushions. It was a pain and took most of the evening, but I was amazed at how good they look! She is still working on the seat backs, but they are much simpler than the bottoms. They should be done soon! I can't freakin wait!

It's crunch time now - 1 week left! Lots to do and finish before we leave for Gridlife Midwest next Thursday!

Interesting. I've never seen that switch before..


Last night we got some more of the wiring done before running out of terminal connections.. Moved on to the floor. Got the main panel cut out. That was by far the hardest piece. Just need to anchor it down. Hoping to get nearly all of the rest of the wiring finished tonight, and finish the floor. Gonna be another late one!

The pictures are terrible.. it was dark and late...

Other things that are scheduled in the next week or so:

-Full exterior detail / paint correction / ceramic coating..Supposed to be tomorrow morning.. Supposed to rain. We'll see how that goes..
-Wednesday.. The day before we leave.. A/C is getting vacuumed and charged. Praying there are no issues or it's going to be a hot weekend for us.. Might get the diff fluid changed too.. It also might wait until we get back.. who knows..

Those seat look amazing. Your wife is doing such impressive work on those...crazy to think she doesn't do it for a living.
