Winterizin' Questions...

Just soaked my heater core in CLR (25% solution for 48hrs) and then back flushed the hell out of it...complete success. My toes are finally toasty. mmm...toasty...

One winter nightmare down, now onto the next: I've got a '70 that has had the rear windshield replaced with a later model type with the defrosting grid. Since my car doesn't have the wiring for this is there anything I need other than a switch and some wire? I've got some patching to do on the elements but have already mounted a switch in the dash and ran the wires, but was worried there might need to be a relay, fuse or such in line somewhere. Any thoughts, suggestions? Also, can I ground it anywhere or is there a preferred spot to ground these?

Thanks in advance...

just below it on the right side.

The wire is approx 2' long.

You might want to put a fuse in the circuit, just to be sure. Either wire it thru an existing fuse (one that's hot only when the ign is on) or use an in-line fuse somewhere near the switch so you can get to it easily.
