My coil is also on a switch, mainly cause with my ignition switch went bad and was originally set up for the SSI module.  

 

Man, that 4x4 is a cool truck!

I had some regular fridge magnets, you know like had measurement conversions for cooking, and what not. I printed out the (1979 Roper) on the adhesive paper that I used for the other decals. I painted the magnets white, and stuck the lables to the magnets.
