After attempting to make the super-thick wire that was specially purchased fit, Damian gave up and returned it to the auto store, swapping it for the next size down (which fit much better into the plugs).
Next cab off the rank was to make a mount for the three fixed sockets - these will be permanently connected to the roof rack, with sockets for the lights inside Booger's head to be plugged in to. That way, Booger's head is removeable without having to unsolder anything!!
And ready for painting...
While the bracket was painting, Damian installed the button for the windscreen washers (after running the wire to it), and a fused positive wire to the cigarette lighter.
The bracket was dry - time to work on the sockets!
Of course, it wouldn't be a day working on Booger Mobile if there wasn't some debacle. One of the sockets self destructed while Damian was testing it - turns out that there was a slight misalignment of the holes from the factory. After several attempts and a few minor modifications with a really small drill bit, the plug fit the socket beautifully.
The below image shows the results of all the wires that were sorted out today for the plugs and sockets...
Sounds simple when you say it quickly!!
Damian is away at Camp Quality Senior Camp this coming week, so there won't be any blog updates until Friday. Have a great week!!
