Warning! - Check your fuses!!

I've owned my 1969 for about 12 years and for the most part the electrical has been working fine, so I never gave the fuses a second thought...
Well, I recently replaced my under-dash wire harness which included a new fuse panel...

And as I'm removing fuses from the old panel, I'm noticing that at least half of the fuses had the wrong amperage rating for the circuit
and several fuses had a rating that was too high ... talk about a FIRE HAZARD!

(Worst case was the fuse for the Instrument Panel Lights: there was a 15A fuse in there, but it should have been 4A fuse...)

Safety First: Check your fuses!
