    The driver was a teenage boy. He was out for a nice, casual drive one evening, and happened to see a pretty girl his age walking by.

    I think you can figure out the rest. [)]

              Oh this one?

              The rest appears solid, other than that front clip. I looked at the pics and something didn't add up, like it had been hit and/or was sitting next to something burning. I then read it had an engine bay electrical bay fire, which put all the pieces together in the back of my mind of the condition of the front of the car. He's got NOS pieces to fix the high priority areas. I don't know his situation, but let that serve as a reminder to the rest of you thinking its great to use the original wiring that came with your project that came out of the weeds.

                  Good point Karl. I was referring more using the wiring from the vehicle that had been left in the Back 40 and that had been left for the elements for years, that the factory had originally put in that the insulation just crumbles when you pick it up. That's a real dice roll there. I should also bring up the ever popular lack of a battery hold down and checking your electrical connections. I may be preaching to the choir, but this can also be the result of not having a battery hold down or a well secured battery, as well as shorting a circuit. I've been guilty of the latter situation myself with shorting circuits, and not just in the automotive sect(no fires, though thanking the good Dude). I love working with assembling the tiny electronic circuits, computers, model trains, and a radio or two, and on more than one occasion I get a dud with a short that must be troubleshooted if it is to be properly used. As we have seen, in more than a majority of the cases, particularly with a crucial circuit, if its not fixed, well, almost anything can happen .....
