they work now.
My day was shot from a client asking me to do some last minute design work, but during testing i was able to finish up my chassis wiring. The only thing that i cant figure out is the turn signals, but whatever.. shit works!!
'till next time
[first time posting from flickr, as well as from my phone, so lets see how well this works out
they work now.

Friends and new kids started showing up a bit later and the fun ensued. After running out of some ginger beer for the mules, I figured that the best thing to do would be to just replace it with some ranger IPAs... while it is fucking delicious, it gets you good real fast. To help us all sober up we went to grab some mexican food, with a couple pitchers of strong margaritas. After some good conversation, and being the last people in the restaurant, we made our way back to Mindy's for a night cap and a parting of ways. Met some awesome people, and it just makes me want to live there more than ever.
Sunday I made my way to my sister's place which happens to be about 3 blocks from LACMA; yeah I hate her too... from there we went to grab some lunch and then we made our way to a swap meet where I bought a hat that I have been looking for ever since I saw a photographer wearing one at an ALMS race.

Meandered a bit more at a few different spots, but nothing too grand happened and after all was said and done I started making my trip home, only with a quick stop in Long Beach to do a parts exchange. Yuri recently bought himself a 280z, and he needs a new exhaust. At one point his car
Drilled out my switch panel as well as my instrument panel and mounted what I needed to mount.
--This is not the final look of the panels, they will be covered with some fabric so that it doesn't blind me while I am driving.--
I am pretty stoked about how it turned out, and once it was all ready I started testing. At that moment I was no longer stoked about it...
Nothing worked, absolutely nothing. I kept trying different things and checking grounds but nothing was working. The relays were clicking, but none of the lights turned on. So after about 5 more minutes I called it a weekend and started to let the vodka+ flow.
During this time of intoxication I started to think about how I wired up the relays. I went everywhere on the internets with a diagram as to how ground switch relays are wired I found out that I was correct in what I did. However, what I did do wrong was mirror where the wires go to... yeah... I'm that guy. Somewhere down the line my numbers got switched around:
