  1. WOW! An encyclopedia full of STUFF! LOVE watching you solve fitment problems, Eric!
    And Cameraman Brian was right on point with this shoot – his follow shots were right there.

  2. That tesa cloth tape isn't there to hold the cables together, its for cable protection. When you are done, you can leave the tiewraps on the harness but please wrap the wires with tape.

  3. Eric why not use another relay if you want the switch to light up? Have hot running through the switch to a relay that opens a ground. Your switch will light up and everything will work properly.

  4. Hey Eric! You could make your fan switch LED work with a relay… Wire the switch up as it should be and use it to switch a relay to pull your other fan relays to ground.

  5. WOW Eric, YOU DID SO SO MUCH WORK, SPENT SO MUCH TIME & MONEY ON DAD'S TRUCK I DID NOT EXPECT ALL THIS WHEN YOU FIRST TALKED ABOUT IT ORIGINALLY. YOUR DAD IS GOING TO BE SO SURPRISED & PROUD OF YOU FOR WHAT YOU DID. THE WIRING ALONE IS UNBELIEVABLE HOW YOU DID THIS. VERY VERY GOOD JOB & DONE CORRECTLY IN SUCH A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, I HOPE YOU HAVE NO PROBLEMS OR BUGS WHEN IT'S DONE. WHAT A TRUCK THIS WILL BE SIR ERIC, IT WILL BE AWESOME AS YOU ARE, THANKS FOR THE UPDATE.

  6. LMAO I hate that when ever my light’s i’m using do that. Half the time it seems like no matter who the manufacturer is they always put the magnet only on the bottom…. like if they put a magnet along the back and on the bottom and around the switch maybe it would make life so much easier can’t tell you how many times that I thought I had a light in the right spot and never fails to drop down and smack me in the face or blinds me haha.

  7. You know, there is a switched power and constant power AND ground all available at the radio right?
    Much more convenient to have just tapped into those.
    Also the factory gauge plug has wires for:
    Power, ground, oil pressure, temp, speed sensor, illumination, tach
    You could have utilized the existing wiring to make this much easier……….

  8. I have an automotive question ; ). I change engine oil every year. I buy 4 liter container but my engine takes 3 so im left with oil from last 4 years. Im wondering if is it ok to mix that lefover oil and use it for this years change ? of course i always use the same oil
    . Yea i know this have noting to do with this video.

  9. Again Eric love the truck build, but im a bit wanted to ask about water coming in the hood gap and flooding your ECM controllers connector plug-??? The way the plug is situated seems like a vulnerable position for water ingress. Hope im wrong.

  10. For a common ground I like to do a 3/4 to 1" screw with a nut and star washer, dab of Loctite pointed slightly up. Switches can be had from the dealer to match what you already have installed to give it a more contiguous look. Hiding in plain sight.

  11. Just get some heatshrink connector jaws for your crimpers already or use your basic electrician crimpers/dyke combo. I cringe every time you roll the dice with a crimp that is meant for nylon/vinyl connectors. I’ve played that little game and it gets old and WILL end up screwing you in the future. Also your crimpers should be adjustable. You could adjust the jaws tighter until you get the proper jaws. They still won’t be making great crimps though.

  12. I'm amazed that the quality of those dashboard pieces were even in existence back then. No wonder they rattled and squeaked so bad. Talk about cheap, cheap, cheap. Poor fitment, no foam isolation pads, horribly attached to each other. Yuck. No wonder GM went bankrupt…

  13. Just add in another relay. Run +12v to switch and let the relay do the ground switching. You could do the same for the exhaust cut off and get matching switches. The last part is just my OCD acting up.

  14. Hey Eric.. suggestion: get yourself an aftermarket radio and run a relay or two off the switched hot (the red wire). And of course run some hots to pin 30 of the relays.

    Additionally silver is the hots and brass is negative you say? Weird… because in house electricity the brass is the hot and the silver is the grounded
