Well, I've decided 49-290 will be pressed back into service representing my first RASig unit, the 2nd Signal Regiment (2 Sig Regt).

It will have high power HF (AN/GRC-106), medium power VHF (AN/VRC-46) and medium power VHF (AN/GRC-160) radios, which are all representative of those used in FFR's of RASig units in the late 80's and early 90's.

49-290 now has keyed ignition and door locks. I also fixed the front park and indicator lights.

The inside clean up has started.... lots of embedded dust and grime. It will take a while.

Next electrical job will be to install headlight relays to prevent burning out the switch.
