I commented on the hood in the other thread, but I have to say it again. That's a great job, Eldon. You want to do my C-141? :D

Sure thing ! Let me know what you want done !

Hey, maybe there's a market for customs. What should we call them? Red Rods ?

I love to fabricate weird stuff.

Happened to stop by my local TSC yesterday. I pass it twice a day, so it's hard to resist!

I saw alot of the lights on Karl's chart, but didn't see any of the halogens, so I couldn't get a price.

Mike, do you have any snow removal equipment on the 417? I'm really curious how much better the lights work in the snow, and tomorrow night would be a good test.

Sighhhhh :D . Well after about 30 minutes of seat time one of the fuses blew on the 418-A and I lost the all dash lights, it stopped charging, and the head/tail lights went out. So I wont be doing any winter activities with it till I fix it. I'm kinda hesitant to stick in a new fuse till I investigate why the one in it blew out.

The new garage project is takin up all my free time so I havent had a chance to get into it.

Gotta go along with you, Mike. I rarely see a blown fuse as a problem. More often than not, it's a symptom.

Have to say, though, that I'm not in love with the WH practice of using inline fuses. I'd much rather see a proper little fuse block, tucked up under the instrument panel.

On my older C-model, (75)---i did a little research awhile back when this question came up on other sites--and the individual bulbs-bayonet style base--like an #1156 back up bulb in an older car is :

From Napa---Wagner brand bulbs *875 or #876/96--come in seperate blister packs-one is rated 35W/one is 55W...-about $.4.00 per bulb--

this was last year I bought them--they do fine--the front lens feels a little warmer, but not HOT/HOT...
