Reply to "Pantera Electronics - HUGE Props!"

This entry is to inform the Pantera Community that Jon Haas has a very nice line of electronics to modernize the Pantera. I purchased several of the modules and have installed them. I'm very happy to report that all function as described in Jon's website - www.pantera-electronics.com.
First, let me tell you about a variation from the normal headlight motor configuration adapted from Gary Walker's retractable headlight actuators mod at RC-TECH.net. Gary's kit requires some significant modifications to your Pantera's headlight actuator assembly (most obvious is the removal of the actuator tube to both headlight buckets). After removing the tube, creating a set of bracket supports to mount the headlight buckets (part of Gary's kit), and installing the linear drive motors to lift each headlight independently (as seen in modern cars), I adapted the wiring harness to support the Jon's HMC (Headlight Motor Controller) module. After connecting everything up, and a little fine tuning, the modification works great.
I've also installed Jon's Ignition Switch Controller (ISC) and it works great. My rebuilt Cleveland roared back to life after a ten-year nap. Soon to be tested are the Radiator Fan Controller (RFC) and the Console Switch Controller (CSC). So, more later.
Thanks to Jon Haas and Gary Walker for supplying the inspiration and installation instructions to complete an important modernization step for my Pantera (#5830).
