I have a hard copy 84 shop manual and a 83 wiring diagram which I was looking at this afternoon, all I could buy new OEM at the time. The relay box appears to be related to the head-light washer/cleaner, and I believe the other item is the hazard flasher. Not sure the 83-84 references align with the 86 but I'll check into that later.

yeah I did not get around to the unplug and see method.

not unique to a 60, but I'll ask here anyway. Anyone have a recommendation for a self contained LED light or lights to use to light the interior of the 60. Basically to replace the dome light function but the plus is...provide adequate light across all four seats and the bed. Mounting points would be at the top of the posts facing towards the center and somewhere in bed area, also facing downward... I realize this is not a one light project. Web sites or sources for options...anyone? Very tired of ...lack of adequate light as it stands now and has been for a very long time. Now is the time to consider solutions.

open to mounting points that make sense and serve the purpose at hand, also open to general solutions

by selfcontained I mean the install would be simple and the light fixture along with the bulb is ready to go and the fixture is there to serve as the mounting point. Power would come from truck battery..as normal.

thanks...I'll check that out. I wanted to try and deal with the interior lights now while I'm generally working on things and nothing is in the bed, so I don't have to unload and move things around. I'm guessing there are a number of solutions but just need to get some ideas.

took the easy way out for now....new LEDs for the OEM light assemblies.

There are a ton of self contained LED options out there. Google LED rock lights. They can be used anywhere in or on the vehicle.

Similar. Not crazy about the exterior color or interior changes. Interesting to see what it brings

I’m offended by everything about that truck

I am going to sell my recurved Jimc dizzy that came out of my 60. I went DUI just to clean up the engine bay a little by getting rid of the igniter. I cant tell a power difference with the Jimc vs the DUI. However, stock dizzy vs Jimc I saw a nice pickup. Asking $250. Will bring to Crawl if somebody wants it.

Speaking of LS powered 60s, if anybody is in the market for one, a friend is selling his that still needs the finishing touches on the build. He’s a hot rod guy and does super clean work, but hasnt has time to work on it with a new addition to the family.

Save $30k from the BaT trucks or finish it and flip it.
