1985 SWB for the road
« on: November 21, 2022, 11:44:40 AM »
I'm still trying to get the kinks out. I have new wiring harness to replace the TBI harness in the truck now. TBI has been converted to carb and will be converted to Holly sniper. Most of my time is currently being spent trying to get the windows/locks/dashboard squared away. I'm hoping to get the roof repaired in December.

The nice thing is finding out in early November that the AC actually worked when connected back up (after replacing schrader valves and o-rings).

I have started getting Christmas cards from  , already. So many little things need attention.

Hah! I guess so. It wasn't a deliberate act of defiance and I won't do it again. I can appreciate the cost of someone running such a website... just not enough to thoroughly read the TOS.
