The codes on each wire are just the colour of the wire
once you get into it its not too bad

Don't think I have seen a flip front on a Haynes, Looks good.

Could the gap not be "Brought together" or pulled in with a fastening?

Being colour blind, a black and white diagram with codes is fine... But trying to suss out the real wires is a pain ;)

I seem to recall 90's peugots amazingly printed the circuit reference on the wire!

I really love the front hinged bonnet, I bought a bonnet that was a second and the return at the edge was poor, so I cut the return off, countersunk holes right along the edge of the bonnet and riveted in an ally rerun then went over the rivet heads with filler sanded back and painted it. No it isn't perfect but it did allow the bonnet to be held closer to the correct shape as I mounted 4 vertical pins from the chassis which then pick up on the ally return.

Im happy out considering since the last time it ran ive changed the timing belt and done a coil on plug conversion plus lots of other wire chopping

There is one coolant leak on the plates i made for the coolant reroute which i just sealed up and maybe i need to get some gaskets to do it properly

I also did some wiring and due to the fact i like my fingers i made this to split the conduit

This bonnet was supposed to be a second but to be honest it should of went in the bin it has already been cut in 3 before this
