Unless you get lost! You turned an hour and a half ride to Escondido into about a three hour tour (just bustin' your chops Vince).

Re: SoCal checkin' in

Hey guys, I need recommendations. I've been looking at my light wires and I think I found out why my front side markers don't work and why my turn signal lights are lighting up in the dash but they aren't turned on. I have a wire that is just about falling off the connection to the frame. Which crimpers and which type of metal connections do you guys recommend? I can't think of the names of the connectors that are attached to the frame and wire. I'll post a pic for best description.

Post Re: SoCal checkin' in

Poor lighting is most often caused by poor grounding ~

These rust prone rigs came with and require , multiple ground straps from body to frame , body to engine and so on ~ go get some cheaply from the junkyard or buy ring terminals , wire and crimpers and add your own ~

Then buy a brand new battery cleaning brush and use it to clean and shine up the bulb sockets , soon you wil have bright lights again .

Good advice Nate. Thanks! I guess imageshack changed their policy. No more free uploading so I'll figure out how to upload my pic of the messed up wire. Ring terminal was probably the word I was thinking about. Would they have those at autozone or most likely best to get from a hardware store?
