No wires. I pulled all 6 and checked the plugs also. Everything looks to be in order. Will get a couple of fuses and wait till the next time it happens and start playing with it. Only seems to happen with a hard rain. Thanks.

'Hard Rain" is key! Search for issues with model electrics in rain.

Carpet wet? I had a bunch of water in the engine compartment on one of mine, the cowl was clogged with pine tree mess. Maybe some water is getting tot he fuse panel?

Bill, it is running quite well. New clutch, put in an m50 intake...minor issues but 160k miles later it does what is asked of it. Welcome anytime to come take it for a spin or take home for a few days to let them drive it around.

No worries...always nice when the kids come home.

This weekend might not work as someone is planning to borrow the seats for a couple of days. But next time they are going to be in town maybe you and I can meet and swap cars for a few days so it is there when they arrive...might force me to get it cleaned up again and wash it...smile
