Hey Fellas, I have an appointment at alighnment shop next week and need to drive my car there.

Pretty much about done, except for interior stuff, dash gauges,pad, carpet, door panels and such.

I have new wiring harness up front, engine and lights and new rear wiring harness.

Question is....what do I NEED to hook up to have functional, brake and turn signals as not to get stopped by PO PO or if I get seperated from my chase vehicle someone does not rear end me?

Do I need to install headlight switch on dash? Id there anything I need to complete the circuit to get the lights to work, or should just plugging them in do it?

I'm not a wiring guru so not sure what all needed? All harness are plugged in, I have not put bulbs in or assembled the headlight buckets and such yet put plan to before heading to shop.

Still installin Classic Auto Air so not ready to have all dash componets insatll yet, so wanting bare min to get me brake, turn and possibly headlights.

thanks

Something I learned early on with these cars, the electrical systems are very funny with regards to having them not complete. Missing a corner lamp, or ground wire, or a burned out bulb, etc and you're going to have all sorts of strange stuff going on. IMO tow it to the shop or wait until it's all together.

What's the hurry for the alignment?

Finish up the car then drive it to the shop.:thumbsup:

Basically just timing John, or lack of time. We have a nice local show coming up July 10th.

So about 5 weeks to complete car (not sure if I am going to make it.)

Short list
1) Finish Classic Air Install (about 50% complete, hopefully get done this weekend.)

2) Headlight and grille assembly needs put on, plus front bumper.

3) Rear bumper needs installed (Would have been done last night, but when unboxed saw dang vendor sent wrong one) - Have driver quality original but lil old looking and bit pitted, needs chromed)

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel but somedays it looks more like a light at a bottom of a pit.

4) Finish adjusting door and quarter glass and then install door panels

5) Put in carpet and seats and console

6) Install dash gauges and console guages

7) Install dash pad and radio and center cover.

It's doable, but I'm a one man show, time flies and everthing take 3 times longer than you think it should.

Plus, if ya remember my car needs salvage rebuild inspection, I havn't made the appointent yet, car basically needs to be complete or at least street legal before they will inspect it. So I need to at least get all lights working, wipers, horn and dash guages done before I call to make the appointment as they schedule anywhere from the next day to 2-3 weeks.

x2 on the tow and the fussiness of the electrical system...... spend the weekend on getting the wiring complete instead of the air......you do not want a set back with your time schedule understood, but you do not want a electrical fire either.......

grounds are the biggest challenge, if the harness's are all good you should have it ready for the trip to the alignment shop in no time......

Good luck with the time line and your project.....
