theoretically i have the day off today so i would like to get some building done if possible.

in reality, while i dont have to go into work today, i still have loads to do and will be lucky to get time lol.

on the cards today.. repair a wiring problem in the wifes BMW , pull side door panel off and repair a window that has come off the track, find, and step on the warning buzzer to get it to shut up. i also have to find a bad wire in my c10 that is causing the alternator not to charge. alternator was tested direct and is perfect so i get to hunt down an annoyance. ( doing some research has me a bit perplexed as the trigger wire that starts the alternator charging is supposedly powered by the horn relay... stupid....)

see ya when i can and hopefully i will sneak in some kind of update later, supposed to get up to 65 here later so need to take advantage of it.

Ahh, electrical issues and cars....I HATE THEM!!!!

I made and entirely new wiring harness for my old '72 Charger (From the fuse block to the back of the car) way back in '85 because no one made replacements...what a PITA!

We're already at 54, with a high of 72, so I'm gonna get some painting done today, but we've gotta go see the tax man first!

Hope you got the electrical things done. I have had issues with the wire to the starter being bad and causing the alternator not to charge. It has always been the Chevy's that I have had this problem with, too.

it is getting a bit long in the tooth and by the time i fix all the little things we would be further ahead replacing it with something else.
