Went ahead and replaced the fog light bulbs again today. That one still doesn't work. And it's on the right side... I'm guessing I really need to re-terminate G110, but it's such a PITA getting in there to do it.

Do you think that it would be a bad idea to add lock washers to the pan bolts?

This is what I'm thinking...


Since it doesn't rely on friction, any oil that does get on it won't lubricate and help engine vibration loosen it.

Wow, I've never heard of those. Think I'll pick some up. Thanks for sharing! Would you happen to know the torque specs for the pan bolts? I just made them nice and snug, I'm VERY aware of how easy it is to strip out the holes in an aluminum block, since I did that in my old Jetta.

Re-terminated G110. Turned on the fog lights and they both work. Was very happy. Took a drive to the car wash and treated my Pat to a wash, wax, and interior cleaning. She still looks like new when she's all cleaned up.

Then coming home, I was behind a pickup with my right turn signal on. I didn't see it blinking in the reflection on the back of the truck. Checked when I got home and sure enough, it wasn't working. Neither the directional or the parking light. Thought I must have messed something up with G110, so I ran a new ground wire up to the light socket. It still didn't work. Turns out that the 1 day old bulb died. Always check the easy stuff first.

Stopped by the body shop to see if they'd have it ready by the weekend so I could take it to Mackinac, and it looks like it'll be ready tomorrow or Thursday.

Once I get it back, sure. Pretty sure they're mainly doing just the rocker panels though, and I don't have before pics.

Nice job. Can't really tell anything was done.
