Tying the wires together will have your front courtesy or dash map light and the door outside courtesy lights go on at the same time. To prevent that was why the senior cars had two separate door switches (one for each light circuit) in 55 and the single switch housing holding two independent switches in 56.

The front map light and outside courtesy lights are supposed to go on when a front door is opened but outside lights are not supposed to light when you manually turn on the front map light by turning the headlight switch knob. Connecting them together will negate that separation but I suppose it is not a huge deal.

Sedan rear reading lamp over the back seat is separate and controlled by the rear door switches or the pillar switch.

I will have to see.. Really never use the map light.

My dads 56 has 2 separate switches. The body must of been a late 55.

For early 56 production.

You are correct. Early 56 still had two switches. I forgot there was a bulletin or article mentioning the changeover and also don't remember if it said when change was made.

More fine tuning but was able to pull vinyl dash back. Heat gun and silicone grease and vinyl cleaner.

Dip is from clamp. Should relax with re heat.

Going to try pipe insulation where double stitch is.

I think my dad took Packard's foam out and put in another foam in. Don't know just thinking cause its not gooey..


I was able to lock the windshield gasket.. Once dash is done window goes in.

Dash.

Used expanding foam inside and where french seam is.

I should of used waxed paper. But was able to get foam off dash.

I used big clamps above speedo. And clock. So the foam would gold dash cover up. So turn signals can be seen. And clock.

Then using carpet jute. On top and over end of dash.
