Since Road and Track made specific mention of the lighted passenger side mirror in their scathing review of the '79 it must have been available.
I have a very late production L82 '79 (the Jimmy Carter 85 mph speedo) with every option save the spoilers, low mileage and in very good and highly...
'79 with delay relay/module in the center console.
I'm loosing patience with my wipers.
Problem: Delay does not function--runs constantly at low speed in the "delay" switch position. Otherwise wipers and washers work exactly as specified.

I'm 100% certain that the actuators have been removed before but do not know if they are original or repaired.

1979 interior lights will not turn off.
I've removed the delay timer and jumped white wires in the connector. Have verified proper door switch operation. Headlamp switch removed and...
Should I repair this '79 carpet or replace? This is my first Corvette and first time working with a 35 year-old car. Everything seems original. Some minor problems. At 53K it had the least miles of any of my vehicles.
