well what a pita wiring is.
i finally routed the btttery wire- decide to use some big muttha conduit so nothing shorts in the back of the car..... that you bunnings 4m for $4..... and its orange!
well i didnt have a butane torch to het the conduit so i cracked open the camping stove.... heated the conduit bit by bit and moulded it into shape of the rear wheel arch and under the rear seat...... time consuming but worth it to me.... had to get a 90 deg bend and decided to run conduit all the way to the front seat and to the tunnel. need to p clamp it down but it isnt going any where in a hurry.
i moulded this bit all the way to the sill just about after 1 hour.... took it slow as if you bend it too quick- it collapses.
aslo while i was at it i fitted the elec demister to the drivers side...
not the prettiest but AFTER 10 years the thing still worked!!!!! i bought it in 2002 lol when i got the ute.
will be warm enough to demist but not heat the cabin- care factor 0 i own jumpers
only issue is i hope it clears the wiper motor arm. also i droped the crimping tool connections and need to buy more of the stupid connectors to connect to the relay posts.... grrrrrrr not happy.
also i need to wire the heater to the isolater switch- cant fit more than 3 connections to starter motor post(yes got 3 on there batt power, headlights relays, power from alt with fusible link and fan) - . no dramas there- probably easier this way, thinking of splicing in a cig lighter to it too to charge the phone.
so just waiting on manifold and to get 4 more clamps to hold down the conduit permanently to the car- and these stupid connectors, i picked up all of the connections box and none left!!! grrrrrr.
once manifold back i can mod the throttle cable and its all systems go!
next after a few drives- save up for impco gas ystem conversion.... hope will be worth it vroom vroom .
