    I followed Marks advice and broke the wiring g down into sections. This way it's much less overwhelming, and the more you study it the more you will see how straightforward it really is. I was going to use the CBS wiring module, but at the time this was out of stock with no sign of when it would become available again. But if you study the CBS modules wiring diagram it's easy to work out what parts you need. The modifications manual is a wealth of information on wiring the car and yes it does specify what gauge of wiring to use in each circuit. Wiring was the one job I had most concern about , but in the event it turned out to be much easier and much more satisfying than I had expected.

    Thanks guys, breaking it down sounds like a good idea and other than the dash, lights, engine and canopy there isnít a great deal of other things to connect up.

    The biggest thing with a fibreglass car is the earthing. Make sure you have really good earth cables from the engine to chassis, and from other key components.
    I used a bus bar to connect all of my earths too, with a good earth cable from the bar to the chassis. It made life very simple.
    I think CBS to a dvd about how to wire a car.
    Very useful to watch if you are unsure.
    Itís not a dark science once you get the basics.

    Iíve wired things in the past but usually individual circuits, never all of it.

    So do it individually, then tape it together 👍

    It's a link to a file I created with all the information from the Modifications manual about wiring a Nova along with my own notes and diagrams. i.e all you need to know to make your own wiring harness

    So, Iíve been told this is important, but a Google search isnít telling me what it is.
    Iím told it goes in the bottom of the engine. Can anyone tell me what it is? I havenít noticed it on the car before and Iím not with it currently to check.

    Looks like an oil temperature sensor?

    I did a quick google and the following pretty much clinches it.
