    All you will have to do is get a switch and some wire, You will have to check the guage, and splice into the hot side of the Fan harness and tap into a constant 12v supply and run it from the switch to the harness. Not hard at all, a multimeter will do the job.

    You're gonna want a relay in there also. Either get a separate relay or use the existing fan relays.

    On mine, I mounted the switch, grounding the one end, ran one wire out to the fan relay under the hood, popped the relay to stick the wire in the socket, then plugged the relay back in... They ground to turn on... You're close, look me up.

    sounds like a good reason for me to cleanup a bay in the garage for a saturday evening job!
    let me know, all I have to do is push a car out of the garage real quick and we can pull yours right in!
    I'll be working in and around the garage all this weekend if you want to get it done

    I plan on being at Mason Dixon for T&T from 12-5pm, but be back around 6 or so... Have you been to the track yet ?
    We need my car for the wire location... If you come down just to watch, it's 10.00 bucks, 30.00 to run..
