This might help, most aftermarket switchs used the same wiring scheme as the stock switches. Bottom one is instructions for a Yankee brand after market, top factory info.

Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

Got some pics of my truck bed from my son. I told him that I would like it to be about the same color as before and with about the same gloss, so he had the paint mixed with 25% gloss. Here's some pics in the booth. He can do show quality paint jobs but that's not what I want. It had some primer spots where the paint had worn through on some of the horizontal surfaces before and he said he could air brush them back on if I want him to. I'm undecided about that.

Looks good the way it is, primer and patina are slowly going south.

patina can be cool if its not ridiculous. my truck is in primer because its not ready for paint. fake patina is terrible. why go through all the trouble of making your bed as good looking as it is just to go back and make it fake ugly? looks great how it is. good color choice.

Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

after a couple of weeks of working on my daily driver ( heater core went south on me) I am back to the death rattle. I ordered the 3.5 inch carb studs I need to make the new throttle bracket fit.

Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

I cleaned up the garage and built a dolly for storing body parts so they don't get bumped or scratched while I'm working on things. Stashing the parts this way also takes up a lot less room...

Re: What did you do with your truck today, Part 3

Sanded the base and clear off the cab and doors.



The body was taken down to bare metal about 10 years ago so I'm only taking it down into the primer. The doors are coming off again so I can prep the jambs, the goal is to get it into high build primer on Labor day weekend.

I also finished up molding the VW hood latch into the filler panel.

I'm going to switch to swivel casters all the way around so I'll get some measurements and a pic when everything's off of the dolly

Pumping gas the redneck way. I am finally taking the half a tank of gas out of the car before I go welding and grinding too close to it (ok maybe I was already welding and grinding too close). Also get to test my new Holley Red pump. Works great!
