Step 7: Closing it Up
I highly recommend that you test the rebuilt lights at this point, before you seal them up. In my case, this meant getting my inverter replaced...
The inverter was located in the trunk of my car, in the driver's side wheel well. I pried it apart and recycled the four-prong plug (12v positive, 12v negative, and two AC), as well as the plastic snap-in mounting post. I could have cut and spliced the wires instead, but I'm trying to keep things as unmolested and original as possible. A little soldering, some electrical tape, and ta-da! A drop-in- er, plug-in- replacement for the original inverter!*
The lights worked great. A super-cheap success! Okay, now time to close these things again. I applied a liberal amount of epoxy, then held them closed with twist ties so they could dry.
* I'll post wiring diagrams if asked. I just assume that more Cadillac owners will be doing this than '85 LeSabre Collectors Edition enthusiasts, so my info probably wouldn't be very relevant.
