+2 Dashboard Wiring Pictures Needed!

PostPost by: JGeezer » Wed Feb 11, 2015 7:19 pm

I am starting on the wiring of my '69 +2 Federal LHD project that I got disassembled, and don't have a good reference for.

Anybody happen to have any pics of back of the dash showing any wiring for a midyear +2? Even small parts of it would be greatly appreciated! And maybe any overview that shows how the whole loom should go. I have some wiring diagrams, but pics would be a huge help.

Thanks!

Hey JGeezer

Have you tried the picture search function, may sound silly but I didn't know it existed! There are definitely pictures of behind the dash on there!

Cheers

Yeah, and I've done big prints of what's there, but they are mostly various Elan Sx, +2S130, etc.. Haven't seen my midyear four gauge rocker switch yet, and I'm kinda nervous about how much the colors & wiring changed model to model.

I have attached a photo but probably pretty poor and its RHD.
For my own benefit, I've made myself an idiots guide for the wiring listing every wire route and colour in the W/S manual in listed form. I've tried to place it here but It wont accept the file (extension docx not allowed ?) Now worked out - see next post
