Happy Day

Well today we got the body removed to make it easier to track down my wiring issues.Thanks to fellow builders Henry and John they were able to discover the wiring problem. Since I have not wired any rear lighting yet the wiring was coiled up and laying on the gas tank and apparently a bare wire was contacting bare metal somewhere. Just pulling the wiring coils out and letting them hang down all problems disappeared. Wiring not being my strong suit by any means I am glad I had 2 knowledgeable friends that could figure it out. I'll get started connecting the lighting in the next few days. I'm a lot happier than I was a few days ago. Thanks again to Henry and John and my neighbor Rich.
