Folks - a number of posts have been removed from this thread that had NOTHING to do with Daves ride. Please avoid personal insults, political commentary and if you have a personal beef with a member consider adding them to your ignore lists. These spats and personal drama are a distraction for the community and unwanted.

We now return you to Daves Awesome Ride build....

Post Thomas Vandalock ignition interupt wiring schematic

Hey Dave- i just came across this wiring schematic and service bulletin for the Thomas' Vandlock Ignition interrupt system. Thought it might be a useful reference for you.

Thats a really sweet bus, Dave.
With your background and experience, this is going to be great, I can't wait to see this when you're "done"
