Tomorrow is National Turn Signal day

Where we encourage foreigners from other nations to actually use theirs.
Well, not really. It's only a national holiday for kx59. Lucky for me it occurs on a Saturday.

The beater van

is in need of repair (again).

The turn signal is a multi-switch, including the turn signal (duh), the cruise control, the delay wipers, the ok now it's raining wipers and the holeymoley it's raining wipers.
After 21 years, gravity and abuse have taken their toll on the multi-switch. (that sounds a lot like me...)
Feast your eyes, that is a 1989 Chevy Astro Van. At least 148 horse power and only 4500 lbs. of curb weight.
Fortunately for me, the turn signal only requires a fish wire and some electrical tape to replace.
I thought I was going to have to do this again.

That was the tilt steering column tear down due to the wobbly steering wheel. Having a steering wheel that wobbles 1/2" on every axis makes for an exciting drive home. I took the next day off from work to deal with that one.
So, Happy Turn Signal Day!
