I owe it to some of you that I got off my derriere and got my Red Sled to another mechanic.
The problem seemed routine: no brakelights. Mechanic #1 traced it to a bad turn signal switch, which didn't make much sense, and in any case the guy was unable to replace the part.
But now mechanic #2 has also pinned it on the turn signal switch, and likewise cannot find a replacement. The only thing he'* been able to find is an aftermarket swtich made for trucks, in black PLASTIC, which wraps around the steering column.
Plastic? It'll look like a colostomy bag on the column. But the alternative is no brake lights. Which may lead to more crap than the c-bag, to be sure!
Otherwise the Sled rides like the 62K mile ride it is, like BUTTER! Like a fat-bottomed girl, if you know what I mean. So what do you think: am I crazy for going for the black shitbag so I can just drive the damn thing (keeping in mind that I can go back to OS at some future date?).
Or should I hold out?
Yipes, it'* plastic!
