Scotty,
In your wiring diagram, there is a junction below the key switch. Can you explain or show a picture of this. I realize that it is probably very simple, but I just don't know what it is and I like the idea of not having power to everything so I want to do it this way. Thanks!

I bought a 3 to 1 electrical Crimp connector at the auto parts house and simply put the 3 leads in one end and the other end bolted (screwed) to the switched side of ignition. If you can't find a 3 into 1 you can use a connector for a bigger gauge wire and put more than 1 in it ? The standard key switch has only one connection going in and 1 going out... There are other ways to achieve this but that worked 4 me ....

Wow ?thats not what i expected at all? are your 20's mounted on 10 or 12 in rims? Fom my floor to the ground is almost 19 !!! I guess that s good, its priddy high and would like it a little higher.... And I have a ds and its definately not rack and pinion! Its a gear box mounted to a tie rod and a long adjustable bar that attaches to the right front spindle! What the heck. Help scotty whats up with that?

You are right the DS model did start in 1981 and the rack and pinion steering was introduced in 1884 What ID # is stamped on the tag under the glovebox were the floor meets the dash?
