I have been puttering with Ole Nose as usual, Installed a new radio, nothing fancy just an inexpensive digital one. I had broken off the antenna last year, ran under a tree limb. Replacing that was a bear after market replacements are crap, had to open the mounting hole, made a mess out of it but patched it up and I think it looks semi-ok. I am an idiot, hooked the ground wire and positive backwards. Shorted out the new radio had to buy another.

The heater in Nose never worked correctly. The vacuum switch had the lines in the wrong place, and the blower switch was wired incorrectly. Seems to work "ok" after lots of investigating of Wiring and Vacuum line locations.

I am debating installing a wood or laminate floor, the carpet is pretty stained, not sure the winter is the best time to tackle that due to expansion and contraction of the floor product.

After doing these repairs ole Nose better be road worthy and reliable at last!!!
