It's been a long month and a half. I got married on May 20th, moved to Tuscaloosa Alabama, remodeled our new home with new bamboo flooring, paint and appliances, and just this week drove the GTO and the Cougar down. Good times! Big thanks to my HS buddy Rory for coming to T-Town and helping with the remodel. Also big thanks to my buddy Shaun for volunteering to spend several days of his vacation helping me drive the cars down and hanging out. He scored a pretty decent 1995 Miata in Nashville and drove it home to Janesville, WI without any issues.
Here we are at the Waffle House just south of Indy....
Our trip from Oshkosh didn't start well as we were experiencing weird electrical issues with the Cougar. It was an intermittent issue and we managed to ultimately make it to Tuscaloosa. Today I had some time to fiddle with it and ultimately traced the problem down to a melted fuse holder in the main power feed that I installed to feed the fuel pump and other accessories under the dash.
The issue was somewhat self inflicted as I wired the stereo amps to the same power lead. The fuse in the holder was only 40 amps, but the holder melted before the fuse popped...Lesson learned. I'll get this sorted out and be back on the road soon.
