thanks guys

the trim follows the A pillar to the floor. the tricky bit is at the roof fold, it was not calculated (just eyeballed) the gutter dose not line up and will require a triangle or curved filler section as it is very sharp

cleaned up and installed a roof rack on the nickel ImageImage
toung weight is up after I removed the gas tank and 10L of very stale gas (circa 1984) .....I can still smell it.
Im thinking of installing a water tank or at least a block of wood to help support the spare?

The trailer looked even better in person! Great job Robyn! :mrgreen:

Careful with the weight distribution, remember you need to have a bit more weight on the tongue and DO NOT have it 50/50 either....

silly wagon wiring.... got 6 wires on the nickel and 6 wires on the sedan.... could I find the brake light wire ? No because the wagon is different........ brakes are fed through the turn signal switch. :x

would I need to feed the brake from the sedan through two diodes to the left and right turn feed ? but if im braking and turning would the lights not stay solid ?

how would I wire this wagon rear harness(L,R,run,reverse) to be operated by a sedan feed (L,R,run,reverse,brake,ground)

but how would I wire in brake lights ? :lol: thanks Joel, Im hoping to build another (its a a wait and see situation)..... but kind of useless with out a brake circuit :lol: I could run two wires, one to each tail light and convert the single filament (on the top bulb) with a dual filament disc and bulb.

Yep, I used a generic turn signal box in the Mazda we had as well. It takes the separted turn and brake signal and combines them on the trailer to one light (just use both is you have a two bulb tail light. Cost was around $90.
