Holy crap! That's a lot of relays!

What's the gizmo beside the spotlight?

That's some lotta shtuff Brady. Do you know what each of those switches works from memory?. You might want to grommet the hole where the wire is going thinto the firewall. Looks pretty clean and well laid out, plus it hasn't burned to the ground yet. lol. Good job.

yeah i know what you mean...but now i noticed some of the 30+ year old wiring is starting to go, and i think it is shorting out the head light switch. and the wires behind the switch are in bad shape, real bad....

i might see a painless kit coming on...

Looks good Brady.

But if I were to have one pet peeve about it, it's the use of electrical tape over the eyelets on your starter relay. If it were me doing it, I'd pull the yellow and blue plastic sheathing off of it, and heat shrink them instead.

yeah, i would agree Joe, and if i ever redo it again i would do that but my truck needs a lot more wireing redo on it, and i am thinking of doing a painless kit at some point and will replace all the wires at that point. i dont like a lot of the wires that i used the first time i put it all in there, also the way they were run. thats why i said it is better but not perfect yet...

and PS i love steves quote you got there.
