With the covid-19 stay at home order it seemed like a good time to get some outstanding things attended to on the cars. The wagon needed the tach wiring sorted as we just never got there when building it. We finally found the tach to no be working (as we figured would be the case) since we removed an HEI distributor from the car when we purchased it.  We had to do a little re-engineering as we wanted to make the Tach more serviceable allowing it to be removed without having to dismantle the dash next time. 

We replaced the original mount screw with a location stud and made a spot for a trim screw to hold in the assembly instead.  We had the original Epoxy encapsulated board replaced with a aftermarket one by an electronics genius we know. I have to button up some more details and wait for a nicer day so we can take it outside so we can run the car and tests and calibrate the tach.

Fingers Crossed!

It's been a while, but I must say it was nice revisiting the entire epic build thread. I love everything about this car.

What an epic save on a large cruise ship size project. My friends were guilty of sending a few of these to the demolition derby that the PNE had. Nice work, love the color, one of my faves, and killer outcome.

I have not been on here much in the last couple years as I have been busy getting my small business going.  I did manage to finally find a pair of 9 passenger wagon steps for the Safari and was able to get them on today.
