    I went with an F1 starter button. Not sure about a relay. Didn't think is was required.

    We could not get the after market clamp on turn signal switch with the two pronged can so abandoned that and used the instructions that came with the aftermarket switch. Though typically full of chinglish spelling and grammar.

    When you push the 1939 starter button it is just a ground. I used the ground wire on the relay. When I press the starter button it completes the ground on the relay, providing 12 volts to the start relay.

    I had to use a three prong flasher for the old Guide turn signal assembly. All the blinkers work right, but I'm having a problem with the turn indicator light inside the blinker assembly. The light bulb holder inside is allowing positive power to the turn signal assembly body, so right now I won't have a turn signal indicator inside.

    Here's a video of what I did for my electrical system.

    Great video! So what is the reason for running the starter button through the relay instead of directly to the starter solenoid?

    Edit: Sucks about the gauges man.

    The starter solenoid I have requires 12V pos. to close and actuate the starter. The button is only a ground. Only one wire to it. The original 1939 button I have is not designed to have power running through it.

    Aaron,

    Good work I'm learning a lot from you on this build. If I was closer to where your living I have a near perfect pair of doors. but it looks like your getting the patching down. I'll keep watching.

    Thanks Mike, the metal fab work is an art that I have a lot to learn about. I am getting better though. It's both fun and challenging at times. Doors are next!
     
  16. You are an inspiration Aaron D!! Great work and excellent videos as always.

  18. Patch looks good! I’m learning this stuff slowly as I go, too. Your videos help a lot as well.

    Good stuff man, shitty about the gauges though :/

    With the ignition switch/lock, the push button, and a keyed ignition what does each thing do?

    Seems like the key switch would negate the column switch and push button?

    Thanks Jeff, I've been in Oregon for almost 6 months now.

    Tim, I could have just used the key switch, but I thought it would be cool to simulate what they did traditionally. It's not exact, but close.

    Took most of the last couple of weeks, but I removed and replaced some old lap patches that were on the door bottoms.

    Great job, Aaron. How long did the door take in real time?

    Thanks Greaser, I'm guessing somewhere around 16 hours for each door.

    Nice! Reminds me of the stuff I’d see on The H.A.M.B 20 years ago before every one had English wheels and shrinkers\stretchers

    Well it's a traditional hot rod build, so maybe that's how they did it back then. Haha:)

    Oregon? Dang, you're just up the way :)

    Great work as always. Looks like the work space situation isn't as nice as FL was.
