Looks impressive Jarno ! ....

Im hopeless at wiring and even the basis of electrics.

My wiring looms look like the pile of wires that Jon cut out of Clives car and I will probably cause a fire in the process. lol

The most complicated thing I ever did was on my Chevy truck.

Originally, it at an interior light that work just by a switch. 1 Live feed with an "in-line" switch and the light unit was grounded through the body work and back to the battery........ simple stuff.

Then I decided I want courtesy switches so the interior light comes on when the doors are opened. which as you may know is a switch on the negative that creates a connection when it comes into contact with the body... so the opposite of how the original light is "powered"

Don't ask me to explain how it was done, our old IT manager drew me a diagram, I bought a relay and a couple of diodes and it was wired up as per his instructions and it worked.

Witch craft!

Im sure Jon would know how to do it..... Ill stick to welding.

Im putting off wiring my car as long as possible because I know productivity will grind to a halt

Its just Rotors and GRP

Basic wirings are quite easy. But when you put something to ecu, its witch craft. I dont know anything about electics too. And this car project just confirms that

Todays progress. Got exhaust done. Well, exept for tip, I have to do it again, its not centered. Other than that, Im quite happy. Exhaust sits quite high so it won hit ground easily
