It's me. And yes...dealing with Dan.

I didnt raise the question however. I have paid Dan and am just eagerly anticipating the arrival of a large crate.

I simplified. Since the only thing I ever use is heater through the defrost vents, I just set the vents to those positions with a toggle switch for fan control.

Ouch. That must be the pandemic pricing special. I picked up a new one on Amazon for less than $30, shipping included. Used on eBay I've seen them as low as $15 since.

Am still looking for information on which wire colour in my 1995 would control the power to the 4wd light. This will be one of the three indicator/dummy lights.
On my 93 it's grey with a green stripe. Pin 5.

yes. i'll be re-using the stock controls.

my dash is currently still in tact as it was from factory.

My 94 FSM shows the plug and which connection that is, it doesn't have the color that I can find. Do you still have the plug attached?

bruinjeeper if and when it comes to that, of course.

I have time before the dash arrives and i get it all painted, gauges wired for + and - and installed etc etc. Hence using the time now to try and find it somewhere in this amazing mess we call the internet.

fishadventure Jumper the wires at the sender and test under the dash - it’ll be clear soon enough

Maybe when the hard top and doors are off. NM is warmer than my old upstate NY, but still in the 20's a lot in the Dec-Feb morns. It's feels like not my Jeep when I'm not in the open air. It's usually top on time about mid Nov and off in mid March.

For the VIN... I pop-riveted the VIN to the windshield frame, didn't use the YJ bracket.

For the wiper motor... I just painted it red to match the rest of the Jeep, don't have all the added weight of the cover to haul around.

Speaking of which. Gotta figure something out for a windshield motor cover.
The YJ back cover/mount plate has a couple less holes, but the vin plate can just be moved to a CJ back cover and it bolts up to support a CJ front cover.

Blanking plates for the wiper access holes are the next thing I need to figure out.

As for Dave's (bruin's) need for minimal down time... I was anxious to keep driving and prepping while waiting for Dan and I to dial in the design. Once I had the gauges I started wiring. I drove this way for a couple weeks, with mockups. I got the full wiring harness done, with really easy access, before getting steel from Dan. (BTW, that's exactly a 10 yr old photo. Dan's dash is still great!)
Hey Don,
