Another day working on the 70

Standard

Finishing up the details of the wiring

After working hard and getting the whole lawn done yesterday  I spent the day of me time doing some finishing details of the new wiring. Mostly terminating the front light harness. I put a terminal block in the trunk and that will join the trunk wiring to the main harness. And a bit of under-dash cleanup is in order after this all gets finished.

And since I wasn’t sure about some things so I called on my observant assistant , Scarecrow. He decided to help.

How can he help you ask? He did a “cat scan”!

After his assistance things went along smoothly. He suggested a couple of wiring rearranging and we should be good to go. It’s getting closer every day. And if Scarecrow sticks with me it should go a lot better. That’s it for today.

And so after sharing a well deserved steak dinner with Faye Dean it is time to relax, water all the plants, sit here and chill on the patio with some Eric Clapton cranking on the music box. Nice!

Hope your day went well. Later!

 

Are you done yet?

Scarecrow seems to be my biggest motivator lately!

He was watching very intently from the console as I was doing some wiring on the 70 today

ScarecrowIs ReadyToGo

I have been playing catch up the last couple of days. Trying to figure out where I left off in the fall. I have a good idea where I am in the project now.

Scarecrow was pretty much on my shoulder the whole time I was working under the dash. I guess he is my quality monitor. I guess he thinks I need to get finished with the wiring ASAP! I did get a major portion of the dash wiring completed. All the under-dash gauge and gauge lighting wiring is done. Along with the engine gauge feeds. The stop light switch is plumbed. As is the turn signal switch.

The rear harness is in and now it is a matter of connecting the front and back turn signals in. As far as the running lights, sport lights and headlights they are all being plumbed to come on all at the same time. On or Off! That’s it! And I am opting out of high beams all together.  When was the last time you used them? I don’t. So this is easy.

So, after a day of writhing around on my back under the dash of the 70 I took a break and went out for a cruise on Woodward in the 65. It was about 4ish so Woodward was packed with rush hour traffic. But no biggie! I’ve done the Dream Cruise a time or two! So a nice go round from here at 9 mile up to 16 Mile and back down to 9 mile and I was relaxed and the 65 got some exercise.

Now is Captain Morgan time! A bit of Captain Morgan, some peanuts and a big bag of Eric Johnson on the music box. This is nice!

More later! See ya!

It’s Cruisin Time! Scarecrow Style!

Standard

Time for getting the cars ready for the new cruise season is upon us!

And some of us can’t wait for the fun to begin

And while I do a lot of the prep work it appears that the fever has hit my furry buddies too! After a day of cleaning and tuning my watchful buddy, Scarecrow, made it very clear that it was all good and that we needed to hit the streets!

It appears that while he may not be able to reach the pedals Scarecrow definitely has the window hang down solid! So the best I can say is “I’ll go grab the keys! We are heading out to cruise!”

Enjoy!

The Patio Is Open! Ready to Party On The Patio!

Standard

Not much other than a notification that the patio is open!

Faye Dean Picked the flowers

I just reset them in the moss baskets and hung them in the hooks [ my one-legged hookers … Don’t ask! ] around the patio. I set a solar LED light in the middle of each hanging basket for some late night glow.

We still have the garden plants to go but that will bee this Friday with some help from Logan, my grandson.

Meanwhile I set the granite tops into a long side table and two smaller side tables for the patio sofa. So with a bit of the chillout blues crankin on the box and a bit of Captain Morgan and Scarecrow the demon cat keeping watch it is a soothing evening on the patio.

So pull up a chair and hang out on the patio!
