    Well, after fits and starts, finally got down to finding the source of my battery drain. Was reading 190 milliamps this morning. After I fully grounded the door switch like this: <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/photo/20946915/39568316vcSkbA>http://community.webshots.com/photo/20946915/39568316vcSkbA</a> the meter read 14 milliamps. Easy problem to solve thankfully. Now I can wire up all the rest of the stuff that's been sitting!/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Thanks for the back pat Rene!

    74: no doors would work. 'cept in the winter! And with my record so far, I think I'll keep as many parts on my truck that can manage to stay there and function somehow!

    So, Mark I think that narrows it down to oh... a billion. All that other electrical's been just waiting. Oh, boy. More electrical stuff./forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    I've been rethinking the exterior. Seriously considering doing a rhino lined exterior instead of paint. Looking into duramax cuz I can get it in the color I want, and I can do it myself (yep. that makes a billion and one.) /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Nice to hear from you guys. Hope all is well!
