Channeling my inner MacGyver again.

There wad Only one casualty to the wiring project… The nut for the ignition switch wouldn’t budge to get it out of the fenders. At All. 😩:?😬

I had to Dremel notches in it, and take it off in pieces… but that left me with no nut to reinstall with…

It’s about a 1.125″ threaded shaft, and probably metric thread. I have a LOT of hardware on hand but nothing like that.

Macgyver would be proud! ;)😎  Biggest section of the old nut, and a tripled up rubber band works pretty solid for now, until I can get a more permanent solution. 😆

Yeah, its jerryrigged and redneck bush Alaskan, but it works! šŸ˜‰

Gonna work for a while too, since the hardware store I hit (Lowe’s ) didn’t have anything bigger than 5/8″, or a rate 3/4″ nut… (Really?)

I’ll think of something… eventually. ;)😎
