There was what I thought I was going to work on, and there’s what I did work on. Today was a grab-bag of odds and ends, adding zip-ties all over, charged and installed the battery, wired up and testing the third brake light and flasher since it hadn’t been connected before. Works really well, like ambulance brake lights. Instead of just going on, it blinks really fast about five times in a half second then stays on. Installed the taillights into the tail section which somehow magically shrank just enough to make them not quite fit – wonder what’s with that. Then there was installing more rivnuts before breaking the 6-32 mandrel – again. Either I’m pulling them too hard, not keeping the tool square to the hole, they’re poor quality, or a combination… oh well.
