After 33 years, they're working!

It's been a long time coming. They have never worked since I've owned her... 33 plus years now, but today that changed. Surprisingly after all this time, the wiring and relays have held up. I'm just happy and wanted to share.
Thanks, Jim

Re: After 33 years, they're working!

Very nice but now I got the guilt trip going. Itís been 32 years since I heard that sweet sound. Can you briefly post what you did to get them going? New or restored? Which parts needed attention?

When I was 16 I bought the car and it was missing one motor and the other was frozen. I drove it for a few years this way and at night I'd have to open the headlight doors manually. It wasn't until about three years ago that I started to work on her again (I'm 49 now) and she's come a long way. My wife had bought me new aftermarket headlight assemblies for Christmas from Camaro Central which I replaced my originals with. It took a lot of bending and drilling and grinding to get the headlight unit bolts to line up and thanks to this site and YouTube I was able to understand the wiring and get that attached in the correct locations, but now she's done and hopefully good for years to come.
Thanks, Jim

Re: After 33 years, they're working!

Man i wish mine worked that quickly on my 69 RS. Of course mine are working on vacuum, which my motor produces very little, but it probably takes about a minute on a good day for them to close. First the passenger side....an then eventually the drivers side.
Good job, it looks sweet.

Thanks for the info. Iíll have to pull the trigger this year unless I want to beat your record. Or I could just play your video as I open them by hand.
