Getting more work done on my project Avanti and you can see, it’s at its most unattractive right now. Previous owners have made a mess of the wiring and sometimes it feels a bit overwhelming, but I am taking it one wire at a time.
You can see it’s going to take a while before I drive this one to work!
When a vehicle is so butchered, typically you buy a new set of wires, called a “harness”. But because this car hasn’t been made in many years and the company that made it is no longer in the car business, you turn to vendors who sell after-market parts. Well, these harnesses are made of ‘unobtanium’… meaning; not available. I will be making my own.
What complicates the project is the fact the body is made of fiberglass, and fiberglass is not conductive to electricity so issues such as grounding of the circuits must be done with extra care.
It ain't pretty now, but stay tuned. As I get more done, I will update the blog... and thank you for the self-indulgence here. I know our listening (and presumably viewing) audience is heavily female but if your hubby, partner, friend or significant other is a motorhead like me, I'm ready and willing to take any and all advice!
