Figured out the electrical issue and it wasn't at all what I thought was going to be: a nightmare of hunting down a short in the light wiring harness. I used my 25-year old 12v circuit tester and stuck it between the negative post and lead. Played with all the switches to see what was keeping the tester's light burning. Turns out the headlight stalks switch shorts unless you hold it slightly back from its natural resting state. So, time to take the column apart and try to figure out a way to avoid spending $469 to replace.Got home and decided to fix my slightly bent bumper and repair the license plate light that broke way from the fixture. Got the bumper in better shape but "found" another short while reattaching the lights and now the parking lights are out! Was still 90+ in my garage at 11 PM when I gave up.
Nice! Go to Home Depot and buy a piece of 4x8 foot white plastic or coated wall panel. You can have them cut it in half or to whatever size you want. Stick it under your cars to catch leaks. Always lays flat. Cleans right off. Never needs replacement. Cheapest solution EVER!Took a picture with its garage mate.......
That’s awesome! Have you driven on the highway with 80+ speeds? If so, and it worked, I’d consider this idea right away. Thanks!
I have a motorcycle tank bag that is secured only by magnets which has yet to give way at speeds well over 80 MPH. The magnets are sewn into thick canvas flaps that lay over the side of the tank.Thanks, Yachtman. I've not yet done the wind tunnel tests, just got it back last night, but I will and get back to you. I did wonder about that initially but the strength of the magnets are so strong, I'm really not concerned. I also saved the original clips, which I might use at the leading edge on each side in the event that there are any issues but really 16 magnets should do the trick.
