    UK Vehicle wiring codes

    trawling though the Tech' page on the EOC site I found this; thought it might be of interest to those undertaking a rewire.

    Nice one Peter. However, the problem I had when making a one off wiring loom from scratch would have been the need to buy a whole range of cables in different colours and sizes when it was so much easier and cost effective to stick with only two or three main colours and use a numbering system to identify all the cables as described in the Nova modifications manual.

    Mind you perhaps a kit of parts such as this :- http://www.machine7.com/product.php?xProd=3070&xSec=223 would have made a good starting point containing a good range of colour coded wiring of the correct rating for each purpose?

    Even cheaper with a bigger selection is to buy a second hand loom. Like this

    A bit more work striping and cleaning, but a good way to get a nice selection.
