    I am not sure, I would look and see if the wiring is there first.
    I am thinking about swapping a 3 bulbs to LEDs to lower current draw. If I leave the door open all night I am afraid my battery might be dead in the morning.

    Jim, I noticed in the "Kick Panel Vent" thread, you had new under-dash courtesy lights.
    Are these available aftermarket? Thanks.

    Ken, thank you for the vicarious "rep" from Gary. I hope you have a great day, Sir!

    Thanks for the reps, Ken. Always happy to help you - the least I can do given all the help you've given me.

    Yeah, my wife would probably like new seals on the doors & windows, but I don't want to do that now since I'm replacing the doors to get away from the slide locks. However, the seals aren't really bad - not like those on the '82 I had. From the poll I took it is obvious that Ford's vendor(s) changed the product in '82 and part of '83 before changing again to something that lasts.

    Yeah, I need to renew the seals, but that will happen as I do all the body work. As for the tranny my ZF5 needs a refurb as it doesn't like to go into reverse sitting still, much less rolling. So the synchros are gone and not letting it go in or at least all the way in.

    But, the ZF is pretty complex I'm told so I'd probably have it done. Will you refresh the T19 yourself?

    Lol! I have two visitor messages from you. One from today, 4-1-2013 and one from 31-1-2012. Both read "Thanks for the reps, Gary." Well, not quite - the first one doesn't have a full stop like the second one does. Man of few words and don't vary them much?
