Re: Electrical fire damage pics
I feel your pain my friend. I had the same thing happen to me on my CJ. There was a smog connector that hung down from the dash. It was not connected when I got the Jeep. I believe it was had something to do with leaning out the motor when the trans was in 3 gear. Well it dropped down while driving down the street and melted on the manifold. It then shorted out the wire and melted all the wires from the switch to the headlights to the headlight switch to the ignition switch. All of it was melted together. I took this opportunity to replace all the wires and put in an actual fuse panel. The Jeep came with only in line fuses and all the power running through the ignition switch. I was truly amazed at the fact that the factory did not use a fuse panel in 1973. Good luck with your wiring.
