I just got all my wiring finally finished and spent ages chasing problems with the indicators and brake lights. If I jiggled the indicator lever all sorts of shit would happen, fuckin left brake light would come on and other sorts of weird shit. Both flasher units replaced, but still no fuckin indicators. After pulling my hair out I finally figured out that the new repro turn signal switch is fucked. I pulled the little bitch out of the steering column and plugged it back in and it only works if you hold it tight and whisper sweet nothings into its ear, heres a pic of the little prick. My question is are there better quality ones? This one was put in by a professional shop a while back, its obviously the cheapest available. Apart from this I actually enjoyed today in the shed, kids all away for the day, Mrs hates me at the moment so it was like going to church. Kneeling beside my stang and calling out Jesus Fucking Christ regularly

See that you are a little peeved atm, so thought i would just take the liberty of toning down your language a little. I too have had a peeved day with the caddy side window cracking but there were little children around and had to suppress my feelings a little. Just do what i did, get tanked up Cheers

I know you have your frustrations Tim but your word-smithing on this is GOLD !!!!
Kerry has nearly wet herself reading this one.
Well posted.
I also, am in awe of your most colourful and descriptive report.
PS Hope the little shit of a thing is fixed soon.

My apologies to any young children that have tuned in but some situations call for colourful language

And by the way Scott, what the fuck are you doing with a fuckin caddy, are you trying to set the record for the most number of unfinished projects

I think I will just try another repro one, I see that CJ Pony parts list 2 different brands.

Buy one local, at least the local guy should back it up. I fitted one a few weeks back, no issue.
