    Hoorah,  problem solved, I switched the supports which reversed the spring action.  Life is good.  Thanks for all your help.  The  latching mechanism works on one side only.  Small little piece inside that sticks out of small hole on slider is gone.  May have to get new support.  Do you know of any available.  It  would be for the driver side. It does matter which side for spring to work properly.  Thanks again!


    Some info for you about trunk lid supports:  



    Appears the supports are out of stock but they will notify you when available,  Part GR-158 $165.00 per pair.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Weekend before last we had the 50th Annual Bug Tussle Trek through East Texas.  We had 73 registered cars and a few tag-a-longs for the departure from Farmersville.  First stop was Leonard, followed by Bonham and then a stop where Bug Tussle used to be for some cheers and general foolery with photo evidence to embarrass the participants.  Next stop was Honey Grove for sack lunches we each bought with us.  Honey Grove provided their Community Center (with A/C) at the cost of two cans of food per person for their food pantry.  From Honey Grove we proceeded to Paris for our banquet in a building at the fair grounds.  Hospitality room at the hotel following the banquet was well attended and lasted into the evening. You can view a video of some of the cars here: http://bugtussletrek.com/

    A couple of photos of our car I took after we got home from the tour - about 275 miles.

  4. If you disconnected the Battery wire from the Horn Relay to silence the horns, it should not be draining the battery.  If, however you just took the wire off each horn to silence them, the short is still active. The battery connects to the Horn Relay on the middle contact according to the wiring diagram in the Shop Manual.  Still think your issue will be in the horn contact on the steering wheel, since that is where you were cleaning when it started.
