Re: Rotunda Tach

Today I received the Rotunda Tach this tach is beautiful no pitting, no cut wires the chrome is so clean it came with a harness that is u shaped to fit over the steering collum. I guess paying $570.00 you get what you pay... It's like brand new I can't wait to install this baby.

Trunk Light

Does anyone know where to properly place a trunk light on our 1961 bird, I just bought one from E Bay. The one already in my trunk is just a single wire and the bulb is placed high inside the middle of the lid supports. Thanks in advance Steve. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1961-1962-1963-1964-1965-1966-1...
