And there was wires!
Few posts ago I wrote that the next job was gonna be electric system. Wires and connectors, relays and stuff. As told Signet's original wiring harness is in miserable shape. It's been partly replaced with household wire that is absolutely unsuitable for car use and of course using only one color and gauge. It is hard to think how it could possibly do anything else than set in fire and burn the whole god damn thing down if connected to power. So, I rather be safe than sorry and decided to replace all the wires. At some point I got a beautiful untouched, "like new" wiring harness from a '67 parts donor valiant, but sadly lost it somehow... (I guess I wrote about it before) . When it was time to start doing the electrics I could find it. I turned over every millimeter in my garage, I searched every shelf, every box and bag and even called my buddies if they have seen it. But no. It was lost. I thought it is simply lost and gone forever. But somehow it felt odd because I was sure I have had it. Well... I already gave up with it and moved one to transmission. I finally got it done, as told, and now it is waiting for to be bolted on the engine and lifted in. I already started collecting parts for the brand-new diy-electric system.. Until one day when i was moving my personal stuff (Yes, I'm moving again, but that's another story...) I found something in a big white plastic box... You guess it! The wiring harness! Can you believe... there it was in a place where I could never ever thought it to be! I can't say how when and why I have put it in the storage with my personal stuff, but there it was side by side with drinking classes, unused clothes, household appliances and other stuff. I can't say how happy I was when I find!
The stray sheep arrived home! Ain't that awesome?:) I'm not sure if you can share the joy, but I'm actually pretty happy about this. It gave me a big (in positive way:) kick in the ass to go garage again:) (which I did)
Here it is, just as good as I thought ready to be installed, the long gone wiring harness!
