soak that ground wire in a bowl of white vinegar overnight. It'll look brand new and perfect tomorrow.

Hey linderpat - the wire only marginally improved. Lots of corrosion inside the wound part if that makes sense. Thanks for reminding me how to clean my old Ping putters

Went through some drama on my interior lights due to a failed Interior Light Delay Relay. Not wanting to spend mucho dinero on the Black Witch, I came up with an alternative that eliminates the delay but doesn't put undue electrical stress on lights or pins by incorporating a 53 relay in place of the $200 Interior Light Delay Relay. The below quote (from my other thread) might explain it better....

If that is the case, would the below Relay scheme work with a standard 53 relay?


The goal would be to trigger the relay to switch on off the ground but I'm not too swift with this stuff so I don't know if this actually helps or not. I just don't want to spend almost $200 to make my lights work.

I ran into an issue with the driver side red light bulb holder. It was disintegrating due to some severe weather exposure. Not having another bulb socket at hand but having a handful of the right sized LEDs, I soldered two wire leads onto the bulb and put Male spade connectors on the other end to connect with the wiring in the door. Worked great and the LED bulb will probably outlive me

I have VW lights on order from an ebayer local to me so hopefully that is on the short list for things to do before Werks Reunion/Amelia Concours d'Elegance Cars & Coffee in 2 weeks.

Speaking of List of Things to Do. There's a ridiculous amount for my 15 year old and I to do this weekend. I look forward to sharing updates. Still highly overwhelmed with the need to get 3 cars ready for Amelia Island. Who needs sleep
