67 Camaro Hideaway Headlights repaired

First I would like to thank Team Camaro for all the useful help and links to diagrams ! Would have been lost with out the help !!

My hideaways had all the relay plugs pulled, limit switch plugs pulled and the motor plugs pulled. The two headlight side switches were in but obviously screwed. The rad support side were gone but the brackets were in the glove box. On top of that some wires were cut and when all hooked up the right side headlight is dim (tomorrows problem and question I will have a pic !)

At some point the motors have been replaced. I assume more than one previous owner has taken a stab at it ! About six hours of headlights in and out to find and move wires, oops limit switch upside down ! I gave it a stab, hooked up the battery and pulled the light switch. Damn one moved ! Another couple hours of fine tuning and getting plugs tight they both open and close EUREKA !!
I have taken about ten pictures showing the limit switches wires and relays all hooked up. Taking care to get the wire colours in. Any way to up load all ten of them ?

Once again thanks a ton guys !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 67 Camaro Hideaway Headlights repaired

Glad to hear. The thing about the 67 style setup, is I think it's a royal pain to get setup the first time, but once it's working, it's pretty reliable.

Easiest thing is to upload the pictures to something like photobucket or facebook and then paste the URL in here.
