Just a update! Took the roll bar out today. Sold it to charlie from MD. So i had the rear interior out, and it was a great time to put my 84 starion vents in. I like the way it looks. And charlie brought his cannon with him so i could see it in person. WOW and more WOW'S. I NEED one NOW!

There's your problem right there VV




i would not have done the wires in the fender trick that can be a problem when troubleshooting- you have to remove the fender.

not really sure. I started the tuck 3years ago. The first part was only the relays and fuseable links. But total the second time, the full tuck. It took me and a buddy about 6hours to do it. And that was putting in the clutch fan set-up

I think you should also paint the rear quarter trim red instead of black, like mine.  

I've been also thinking about painting the rear window visor red, but not sure yet.

Funny this came back up. Just took off the pass fender to run wires myself. Debating running the other side through the wiper cowel and come out by the battery. Seems like I'm constantly changing wiring though so we'll see
