On mine the wiring is all on the car frame, mostly held with pop riveted cable tie clips and all the electrical fittings come quite close to the frame so I used a 2 or 3 wire quick connector so I can remove body parts. Under the wheel arches I glued the wire in place with a tiger seal substitute. Can't move any of the wires and IVA man seemed to be impressed at the lack of flying wires.

That's good news then, I'll use some of those for the tricky bits.

The whole front end and engine is now wired or at least the wires are ready to connect up under the dash. I'll finish the rear light mounts later and get started on the back end after. Its getting closer...

I've finally got the front and rear components of the car wired and now its time to connect the mess under the dash.


I have a Thatcham approved immobiliser as one form of security, could anyone suggest what will pass as the second?

The steering lock - or - even a key on an ignition switch will do

Mine has the steering lock and ignition as the two forms.
I think you may find the immobiliser has to be ‘professionally’ installed. I added mine after Iva.
If you’re in the area you are welcome to have a look at my car.

Yeah I did away with all the column switch gear and ignition barrel so my steering lock no longer exists. I have a dash mounted ignition barrel from a bike that’s bolted to the column support frame. Hopefully that counts as the 2nd item.

Re the immobiliser, ah, I’m not sure I want someone else messing with my electrics. If it’s a sticking point I may ask an installer to look over my attempt and see if they’ll sign it off as is.

Yeah I know what you mean with someone else fiddling with your electrics.
I’m pretty sure that a letter (invoice) from said ‘professional’ would suffice as proof.
My chassis material was new but the company went out of business when I needed the invoice for the registration. So I just found their old address and had an invoice.
