RE: 58 Parisienne Joined the Gang.


Thanks!
Removed the 3 gauge set from the dash. It was in really rough shape and none of the gauges were hooked up anyway. lol
Ive picked up a factory console mount tach for the console that I think will look much better.

Would somebody be able to identify where this wire goes? I think its part of the courtesy lamp working. Does it go to the courtesy lamp switch? That isnt working. Out of curiosity. How do you remove the top switch and courtesy lamp switch? I dont see screws holding them in. I do see there are set screws for the switch handles.

A bit of wiring to clean up under the dash. That may have been a bit of an understatement. Love the lamp cord wiring.

 I may have to make sure not to drive with the sun behind me.

That does look like the wire to the glove box lamp, it would be hot all the time, switch just pushes into the slot. You may have to remove the glove box cardboard. Did the convertible top switch have screws in it from the top, up under the padded dash? Ive not worked on any 58s but I assume they are all the same.

Thanks for the reply.
Theres a lip where the top switch and courtesy switch sits. I couldnt feel screws when I reached in, and if there was, I have no idea how Id get a screwdriver on them.

I picked up a factory Tach for the console. Looks much better than the ratty gauge package that was there.

Ive got a 71 Corvette shifter assembly from an old project that Im going to try to replace the existing shifter with. The shifter ball and button will be much more period correct

Nice work! Great looking car! I agree with the others who commented on the interior looking nice in their, also the tach adds class compared to the gauges.
