Re: 69 Camaro headlight switch install
Al, Jordan and Brian
I guess some Close ups of the Ground Plate Assy between the Headlight Switch and Dash Carrier/ Instrument panel would be Helpful ?
Al, I bought my Dash Carrier/ Instrument Panel from Ground-up, they are like 20 minutes from my home and Super to do Business with, and I want to say it was an OER unit.
I had Mike over at Instrument Specialties in North Kingston, RI do the Swap over, again, Super people giving us what we want, Excellent products and good prices.
The Headlight Switch is held in with an Open Center, Outside Threaded nut that goes thru the Instrument Panel (In my case with the Wood Grain Inserts, it goes thru that First - Then the Instrument Panel) On the back side, there is a Tab from the Ground Plate that picks up the Lower Left Hand Wind Shield Wiper Switch Screw.
The large Round hole with the Slot in the Ground Plate picks up the Tab in the Headlight Switch which orients the Headlight Switch towards the Steering Column and gets "pinched" between the Instrument Panel and Headlight Switch.
The Lower Tab again gets Pinched between the Lower Instrument Panel Mount Flange and the Steel Dash Support assy and like Brian said, the Black Wire Terminal goes to the Lower part of the Steel Dash Support.
Sorry if I'm "killing this" but I like to have Pictures and any info when I'm looking for something - Hope it helps.
