1988 EVTM

Did this forums have the EVTM's scanned to look at wiring diagrams? I had a 1988 Thunderbird EVTM and for the life of me, I can not figure out where it is.
1988 Thunderbird Sport. No engine, no trans, turbocoupe disk diff with 3:27 gears, 31 spline axles and Cobra clutch packs, Turbocoupe front brakes.

Bought this car back as an old project car.

Thank you for uploading this. Trying to figure out why I have the center top mount brake light and no tail light brake light. Turn signals and hazards work perfect and no blown fuses.

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

@TheFoeYouKnow , I made a slimmed-down (file size-wise) version of the 1988 EVTM if you'd rather use that. It's about a tenth of the original file size, about 46MB total now vs. 465MB of the original.

Feel free to use it or link to it. At this point I'm willing to host anything like that.

Thanks Eric, that's actually where I ended up. I just assumed that I waa missing a fuse or a bad wire. When I crawled under to check fuses I found about 5 wires jammed into the fuse box with a bunch of splices. So I wanted a good reference if What it should have looked like.
