Tiny steps in the right direction
I ordered new plug wires with 90º boots, more electrical connections for all of my wiring and a few spare parts that have been consumed over the past week. And in a moment of OCD, I organized my electrical connections into a new box - only to discover that I actually need two of these. Far easier than individual plastic bags.
I tried, again, to mock up the '71 only fuse box only to discover that it isn't going to work - by a long shot. The location of the relays on the fuse box and the back of the push button assembly prevent the two from working together...so I'll have to come up with a new plan for the relays. I may just cut the fuse box part off and use the relay mount part - or maybe I should try to find a broken one before I do that since I spent hard earned money on this one. Kind of a bummer but not all that unexpected. On the other hand, I didn't have to tear my existing fuse box apart to figure this out so it's a 'win' in spite of being a 'loss', I guess.
