I think it was Dummy that mentioned the trucker flaps from Napa so I went and had a look. They were like $20 bucks each and I had $35 in metal plus time and wire. So for $55 I made these.



I used some trailer safety pins to hold them on to a 1" solid bar. Figure this way I can remove them pretty easily.

Wirein

Well, I cut out the old trailer wiring and replaced the first four feet (which was made up of no less than FOUR butt joint connections, each covered in silicone, and 30 layers of electrical tape - whata mess). Now just one butt joint per wire on the four wire connection, staggered, to avoid a big lump, shrink wrapped then covered with two wire covers.... Tested OK!

Replaced the fuse pannel on the 78 MC S&S. Wow, another disaster waiting to happen. Every wire freyed and almost broken. IF YOU HAVE AN OLD BOAT PLEASE CHECK YOUR WIRING AND FUSE PANNEL Someone "tried" to re-solder the ckt board.... All the connections were toast. Replaced all the connections, and put a nice new modern fuse pannel in... in the process organized all the wiring and re tyrwaped it. Looks pretty good now. (Maybe rewire the boat next winter)

Finally got the seat back in (which I replaced the wood in earlier this winter)....

Put another coat on the fender repair. Hope to wet sand, buff soon...

Good weekend thus far. Lots done. Lots more to do.

Next weekend maybe the lights (trailer)

Taught my 9 yr old baby girl to wakeboard today, she's already comfortable both ways and switching.

Did you use the original location for the fuse panel or relocate? Have to do the same on my '77 and haven't decided where to go.

Don't know if this counts as working on the boat but we dropped the dock and the two lifts in yesterday. It was a bit cold at 43 degrees but everything is now in. Just my luck it's supposed to be 79 today.
