Nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon with 85 degree temperature and 85 percent humidity than cleaning the fuse box connections. Before I did this, my Voltmeter which ran off a wire from under the dash, ran about 1 volt less than the output directly at the battery. Now we appear to be the same.

Oh , someone asked for a photo of the car

It is a 1955 North American T28 Trojan, restored as a -D model, Eglin Air Force Base 1961, just prior to going to Vietnam for combat. There are a couple in Australia flying the circuit, I believe.

Yes, very nice...very nice fuse box. Nice fuse box holder too.

Here is my 164 around 9,500 Ft on the top of San Fransisco Peaks in Flagstaff AZ. Sorry not the greatest shots when I am not paying attention to the camera. Had it on the wrong setting. New digital. Use to the old stuff.

Took the kids on the lift to the top.

Completely rebuilt motor, suspension, paint and more... Drove like a dream from Phoenix to Flagstaff and up to 9,700 Ft without an issue.

Swapped them with my US plate in the back window. Here in Arizona they do not require front plates. I run it like that for fun. Really gets people scratching their heads.LOL

Don't you guys have speed cameras over there? We have speed cameras that shoot you from the front as well as the back and in the country the cops have radars on their dash that get you as they drive towards you from the other direction. There is a big fine if you don't have legible plates front and rear. What are your speed limits? Our maximum on main open roads is 110 KPH and 100 on secondary ones. Some councils in hills areas want their limits lowered to 80 KPH. Everyone knows it is all about revenue raising of course. The way things are going here we will have the man with the red flag walking in front of us!

It's a state or province thing from what I know. Up here in Canada my province only has rear plates, but the one I go to school to has both required. They probably want both plates for the same reasons you've stated.
Speed limits are about that same in Canada as what you guys have there.

American speed limits vary a bit based on the state, but usually around the same speed as you have. 60-70 MPH, I don't believe many (any?) states still have the 55 MPH limit.

NY still has 55, I think. As for plates, varies by state also. Plenty states do not require front plates. Texas does, but cops usually leave classic cars alone, in my experience....have been driving my Alfa's without front plates since 2003 here

Speed cameras here are a joke. They have fifty-five signs before the camera. I have plenty of time to slow down and then speed right back up after I pass it.
Arizona is still the wild west really. LOL.
I have a visible plate on the rear and really do not speed much in town, mainly on open roads with literally no people.
