I just got my 427 SS back Sunday afternoon and took the first ride at night today. Kinda suprised to see that there are no lights in the guage pod on the dash..... Is this the same for everyone?

Yes Sir, the pod lights should go on with the car lights on. Give Bud a call Monday, he will help solve the problem. Congrats on your 427SS.

My lights are on now....(Thanks Bud)

FYI - If anyone else has this problem pop out the light switch and look at the connector used to tie into the existing wiring. If its blue thats your problem. The blue connector is too large of guage. Red ones are best!. If you have the blue I just popped it open and used needle nose pliers to crimp the metal insert and it seems to make good connection now.

The fact of the matter is simple, Bud cares, he cares about the cars, customers and he loves his job. I have no clue what he makes but in my opinion a valued worker like that with those qualities is what will make or break a company, treat him good over there or someone else will snatch him up fast.

Keep up the great work Bud.

Which color wire do you connect the hot wire to and is the wire on the headlight switch or the dimmer switch?
Thanks in advance.
