Well well well
Fellas, I took a step back and had to take a break. Lots of car-related frustration, had to finish school, etc.

However, for the first time in a couple months, today I picked up the wrenches to work on the Mustang. I had an electrical problem I had to hunt down with the turn signals, running lights, and headlights. As it turns out, the problem was very very easy to fix. I cleaned up the ground cables on both sides of the radiator supports, cleaned up the front turn signal housings (they were really corroded and rusty), installed some new bulbs, and presto! No more electrical problems!

Talk about a good day. Tomorrow I'm going to work on the gauge pod and brakes. I might be able to get this bad boy on the road soon...

Hey Steve,

Back for more punishment eh?TongueTongue

It's in the blood, or gets in your blood.


Haha, yeah. Can't stay away too long. The previous 2 times I worked on the car I caused more problems, so it was time to take a hiatus.

I'm back, baby!

Good to hear Steve
I am happy for you to get to spend some time on it. Right now all of my weekends have been working on the Jeep, I a upgrading to an Atlas 4 speed and it is taking more time than I thought it would. But I should get it rolling today.

Hopefully I can go get the Mustang while the weather is nice.

Thanks fellas. Today I bled the brakes and fixed the gauge pod lights; cleaned up the contacts with some emery cloth and it's all good.
