So our plan off attack was for my brother in law(more like a brother) who goes by spidertoy here he would take care of the body and I would handle the rest.
So while Don stripped parts off the body my main thing was to start going over the wiring and trying to get it to start.
The stock fuse panel was just sitting and hanging--and its badly rusted out so I am going to replace it with an updated panel.
I threw a backup battery in it to just see if I could get it to turn over--nothing. I was not getting a crank signal to the relay. I started back tracing and was trying to see if I was getting voltage out of the ignition switch.
Well when I was "barely" touching the back side of the switch this happened.
I looked it over and thought to myself--I can fix this. So I cleaned it up/greased it and reassembed it and staked it back together--just like new.
So I threw it back in and it now turns over but won't fire. I pulled the cap off and cleaned the crud off the points and the damn thing fired off and ran pretty decent. While I was doing this my sister called my dad so he could hear it run---he was excited.
One cool thing we learned tonight---as soon as its done they are taking it to california to drive down route 66. So on top of the fact my dad is going to beat this--they have a plan for it...
