Glad you liked it.
Next project is a half hood for the engine compartment.
This will be a challenge for sure...
I got it photo shopped for a start to see what it will look like and since I am happy with that look, I am now working out how I will approach this project.
Probably wont need the bead roller, but will probably need to renew old friendships with some sheet metal guys I know...

I have started making the half hood, but since it is not electrical I will post progress on my bead roller thread, see link below.

Thanks for the diagram. That might help others that will want to "update" the 2-motor wiper system to the single one.

I pulled out this morning some yellowish diagrams that I did years ago, when I was implementing a push switch (horn type) mounted on the shifter lever so I can actuate the wipers at will. A single touch will make them go one cycle and return to rest. It worked. Later on I replaced that with a wiper delay system from Hella.

Unfortunately I have not marked all the colors of the connectors at the switch and at the motor, so your sketch is great. I will add the following color key from the harness at the switch connector that you have in the upper right corner:

Park ---------> Y
Washer -----> LB
Speed 1 ----> LW
E (Ground) ---> B
Speed 2 ----> LR


Hello all, can anyone explain to me what the "Park" wire does? does it have something to do with an intermittent function of the wiper motor? Also, does anyone know where I might be able to find a replacement windshield wiper switch for a 1969 patrol? The shaft pulled out of mine so its in-op :( thanks!

Park is designed to get the wiper arms to stop in a predetermined position on the windshield so as to have them tucked out of the way and looking neat I guess.
Park means that the arms will always stop in the same position once the wiper switch/motor is turned OFF.

You probably have two options for a replacement switch.
Obviously, the best choice would be to find a NOS switch for sale, possibly on eBay which is a good start, but you must be persistent and not just look once and dismiss this lead if there are none listed the day you look.

Secondly, is to find a similar switch that will fit and work and just put your old knob on it.

I suppose a third option is just to replace it with whatever you can find that will get you out of trouble for now until what you seek turns up...

thanks a lot! How would one wire up the switch and motor when starting from scratch? I got rid of ALL the chassis wiring on my 69 patrol so I could put all fresh, clean, good wiring in.

And after looking through my switches, I think I do have a good wiper switch. It seems a previous owner cut off the original connector (6 slots with 5 pins) and sloppily soldered on a different connector (6 slot with 6 pins). I fixed the bad solder job and got it nice and neat. stupid question: the wiper switch has a "rotate" function on the knob for the washer nozzle function, correct?

I think the busted switch that I have is actually the headlight switch...i found the knob and push rod and ill try to attempt to repair it, or find something else to replace it.

It sure sounds like you are on to it yitzac.
Slow and easy I always say will get you thru...

Maybe somebody else more familiar with early Nissan cars and Patrols would know if all switches came with the washer function in the switch.
I have a suspicion that they did not, but I am no expert...

I have seen a headlight switch used as a wiper switch years ago in another vehicle, I guess you got to run with what you some times.
Not pretty but it did give the guy wipers.

Only if anybody is interested, I am getting my carpets made up now and hope to have my seats etc installed once the carpet is installed.
I'll post pic's later.

Carpet pretty much done now, seat install to follow soon.
This new computer with Widows 10 software is not helping my posting progress.
Change for change sake is one thing that just gets right up my nose...

New Windows doesn't like the forum period. I have people contacting me frequently because they can't even complete the registration page. I have to tell them to use a different browser or device. :roll:

Carpet looks fabulous!

Thanks RP for the tip with Windows, it sure would not be my first choice if I had any others.
Yes, carpets really do give it that finished look.
I have just about got the seats in place.
I had a hold up as I wanted to install a fire extinguisher on the rear trim panel behind the passengers seat.
There are few location choices and it seems reachable for the driver who generally would be the first to respond if required and not that difficult for the passenger as well.
I wanted it raised above floor level for ease of access and also so if any items were to be stored behind the seats they would not get in each others way.
I had to remove the trim and fabricate a small frame and install it securely with metal for the extinguisher bolts to mount onto.
That now is done and I am trying to install my steering wheel and have discovered several splines on the shaft head had been bruised and needed touching up with a small hand file.
My steering wheel is not seating all that well even after the touch up and I will need to see what is the issue.
In the meantime, I have found that my horn button that sits in the center of the steering wheel is too fiddly to install and remove should the center nut to the steering wheel need to be accessed, so I plan to machine up a aluminium plug that will fit the center of the steering wheel and also accept the horn button being pressed into hence removing the need to undo 6 small bolts to reach the center nut.

All fun and games, just the kind of stuff that fights you right up to the finish line...
