Got a head start on a few things this morning. I installed the tail light bulbs and checked the fluids. I still need to add a little tranny and brake fluid, then I should be good there. I still have quite a bit to go on my list below. I added a few more things I want to get done before winter. It is coming faster than I want.

Wiper blades
Replace Headlight Switch.
Rewire Stereo and relocate hidden antenna.
Diagnose Brake Pedal problem.
Tuck rear bumper.
Fix leaky windshield and rear glass.
Work in top.
Work on quarters.
Remove Chrome Trim.
Bang out a few dents and prime/seal before winter.

This is what I got done over the weekend. Not much... My plan for Saturday went all wrong. I ended up having to do something else. It will benefit our family so I can't complain too much.

Wiper blades - Done
Fluids - Done
All lights - Done


Still to do:
Replace Headlight Switch.
Rewire Stereo and relocate hidden antenna.
Diagnose Brake Pedal problem.
Tuck rear bumper.
Fix leaky windshield and rear glass.
Work in top.
Work on quarters.
Remove Chrome Trim.
Bang out a few dents and prime/seal before winter.

I always liked the dual antenna look, I even got repop ('60 impala) ones that I installed on my '60 olds.  BTW when you were typing that did you have Aaron tippin going through your head?

Dual antennas would look cool on your car the way it is now...not so much when it looks like your rendering.

Depending on where it's broken (i.e. if there's sufficient wire protruding from the base of the windshield) you might be able to re-solder it if you're handy with a soldering iron. Otherwise, you're looking at replacing the windshield.

The wire is still there from the windshield, but the end where it plugs into the stereo is broke off.

Danm Chris, that sounds like hot rod magazine material there.  I'm a bit more retro (big surprise right) but that would (will!) Be sweet . Thumbs up

What do you think about this? Roof console from 97 olds bravada. I think it would look nice in my 74.

The wiring may be a hassle, just guessing. JB

Piece of cake (relatively).  Both Wally and I have these installed in ours.  Wiring's pretty easy, I can dig up my diagram if you want it.  IIRC in addition to the dome power and ground you already have, you'll be needing:

o  two wires for temp sensor (if it has the outside air temp option)
o  a power feed for the map lights and display (separate from dome feed, but uses the same ground)
o  a feed from your parking light circuit so it knows to dim the display when you turn the lights on

Mounting will have three bolts: one in front that goes directly (at least in mine) to a hole already in the front roof rail of the car (I think it was for the moon roof option), and two directly above the dome light, for which you'll need to fashion a T-shaped bracket to attach to your existing dome light mount.

The scary part will be slicing open your headliner! Smile

That looks awesome. Is that one from a Bravada? Also have no headliner so no biggie. Got any more pics of it? definitely yes on the diagram if you have it as well.
