Lights, camera, action.......

 7:51 am - Thursday - February 18th - Wittmann, AZ - 43° F, 31% humidity, wind 13 mph out of the north by northwest.....clear, blue skies this day with a forecast high of 65° F.....it is 45° F in Seal Rock, and raining today, tomorrow and Saturday.  On this date in 2017 we were boondocking near Borrego Springs, CA....our 9th sunset during that two week stay......↴


Taking advantage of the empty space where my old Flexsteel seat once resided, I lay on my back and removed the 39 year old Stuart-Warner tachometer in preparation for the receipt of the new Speedhut digital tachometer.  It actually did not take me that long to get it out....there were no surprises this day.......




.....next up on my to do list was to remove the old sealed beam Sylvannia high and low beam headlights, and then install the new 4" x 6" LED ones I ordered off Amazon from TruckMall a while back.....


.....they were surprisingly easy to install, and after reading, and rereading the installation instructions a few times I figured out how to wire them up......


......while I had the bezels off I took time to polish and clean them for the first time in years.....


.....everything fit perfectly, and within a couple of hours I was testing them, and very, very happy with their brightness.....once I finish freshening up the black paint I will reinstall the bezels, and then take a nighttime picture so you can get a feel for how good they are....


.....once I was sure they were working correctly I removed the bezels again, and masked off the area around each headlight so I can freshen up the black paint which surrounds the bezels.....


......now I'll have to figure out what to do with these perfectly fine sealed beam lamps....I sure don't want to throw them out....


.....when you are busy each day with projects time tends to fly, and before I knew it the sun had set upon another Wittmann day......


.....just as we do in Seal Rock, OR, we feel quite safe here in rural Wittmann, AZ.  The property of our friends is one mile on dirt roads from pavement.  Here we live in a mask free environment, and life seems quite normal.  As you might imagine, we continue to be asymptomatic to the Wuhan Flu.

According to tracking, my new Progressive Dynamics converter/charger I ordered from Camping World will be delivered via FedEx today, so I will be able to get cracking on its installation.  Once I get that installed, and the rebuilt alternator installed our electrical charging system will be intact once again.

  1. I do believe it was around this time in 2017 that we met you. We took the hike up the mountain to find the infamous snake. ;)
    It is definitely good to have little projects to keep us busy.

    1. You are quite right Patsy. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you, hiking with you, and sharing a campfire, or two. Good times.
