What a day that was! Turns out the timing was off and now it runs beautifully...

Finished up running the wiring on the drivers side, now just have to terminate everything into the fuse panel... so much fun to come!

What fun wiring can be... Only one more of these relay holders to go and that should be that.

Fun :-)

Does Pico make that relay / fuse holder? It's a good idea for these add on items.

Love people and use things,
because the opposite never works.

They unfortunately do not. I looked for a long time and found this one on eBay, I’m using two of them. There wasn’t anything suitable at the local parts stores that carry Pico

Wiring is almost done, a few small things to tidy up. The gauges all work and look great, just need to finalize horn, defrost, hazard and 12V button locations. Still need a custom piece to mount the heater controls to, once that's done the dash can be buttoned up.

Ahhhh, your wiring brings back memories when doing my own.

I saw your car two owners prior, when it was full on race mode. You’ve come a long ways with it, nice job your doing on its resurrection.

Guys in Australia, they advertised on the 510 group on facebook. I can hook you up with contact details if you'd like.

Sure could have used an extra hand had I known :P

And thank you, I'm glad it's being appreciated. It's a lot of work but finally starting to come together. Hope to have it done by Xmas... How much of the cars history do you know?

Done by Christmas, sounds like your closing in. Living in Victoria can you drive it in december?

I met Lou, prior to Don, but at the time didnt know Lou owned it until I visited with Don. Im most certain I know nothing more than you. I no longer recall specifically where Lou came from, but it was east/NE USA. Lou closed up his busines a couple years ago, it was in my childhood stomping grounds.
