adn other body work  replaced the radiator and condenser but for some
unknown reason the right front headlamp, the bright light switch , the horn ,
and the cooling fan no longer operate  and the left headlamp is now dim.  i
have checked the wiring harness that runs across in front of the bumper
and found no broken or damaged wires...  am stumped   can anyone help

There are a number of grounds that run across the front, it is possible that you could have missed one or two.

update there were no ground wires across the front end that i could find. followed the harness from rf headlamp til it got behind the lf head lamp no grounds anywhere got under the hood found the same harness and followed it to a place where a bunch of ground wires are located they all share the same nut/bolt combo in the fender i noticed that a couple wires had housing rubbed off. i checked them for breakage and repaired them (no help) followed harness to fuse block and i find that all the relays for the individual systems that are effected are operational ie . i can hear and feel the horn relay click when i honk the horn and no broken wires under the the block either.. so confused.. car runs like a champ just these annoying things i cant figure out
