going good mate!! nice wheel too. I went american autowire harness cause my harness was molested in ways i dare not describe and under the dash and cluster harness was all melted and fused together.. some parts snapped and there was splicing left right and centre and they put a new fuse box in that kept falling apart and had a few of my electrics (like fuel pump) piggy backing off circuits .. so for me, in my case, i went and bought a new AAW harness but im also doing a resto mod and the kit fits all my needs perfectly. Should fit regardless of which side the steering wheel is on cause the fuse box is suppose to sit in the middle of the dash so just direct the cluster of wires in the direction you need etc.

anyway good going!

I went with Painless. Looks pretty good but are a fair way off using it so can't comment on it's usability. I had no choice though as my wiring was shot.

Looks like you're having fun mate.
The harness from my car was chopped up beyond repair so like a number of guys on the forum I will have to get a new wirnig kit. Not sure which brand to go with yet, painless one sounds pretty good though.

Good to see the boss is keeping an eye on your work too. Wink2

Well done Ralph. There's a lot of work you've done there.
It's a great feeling when you've finished un doing and start reassembling.
Just a tip.. I put each nut,bolt, bracket etc in a sandwich bag and marked it.
I also took about 300 photos as I went.
It's surprising how you think you remember how it all goes and then 12 months later .... ???
That's me anyway Smile

+1, only my memory is about 12 hours, not 12 months.

Well not much action on the fastback as yet exept for soakin all the brake line fittings in WD 40 theres always something to slow you down,

picked up the twirler on friday, impressive bit of gear thanks again Ron !!



Finaly got around to replaceing the fuel tank in the 66, sick and tired of rebuilding the little 1 barrel carb even though its got two filters on it ,



its improved the view from the rear no end,



so into the shed this arvo with a few brews whack on the V8s and try to get that loom out from under the dash without drawing too much blood, last time i had a go under there i looked like id wrestled a cat,
cheers Ralph

You'll making new lines in anycase, don't waste too much time on them. Just use some vice gripps on them.

They are a $1 each just buy new ones, but mostly they are 10mm not 3/8. You only do them up once or twice in 20years.

I'm in favour of restoring the old harness too. They are rarely to far gone.


Me too. A few little improvements (e.g. replace the odd connector, install better fusing etc ) for reliability sake & all will be good & cheap.

Amen.
