Hi guys,

I've looked through the IVA manual but have lost the bit that talks about distance between pipes/cable runs and so on.

Can anyone guide me on this topic please? I may have buggered up in the early stage of making the car as I have a bottle neck around the gear lever area and I'm struggling to find a satisfactory path for the electrics that run to the rear of the car.

On a brighter note I'm fairly confident I'll be turning the key in the next few weeks. I've mounted all my electrical hardware and have done all the cable runs asides from the bit above.

I went with a Megasquirt in the end and made use of the CBS wiring fuse/relay box for an easier time. I just need to connect the dots now with cable.

Another q, has anyone sourced a good place that will machine/stamp chassis numbers in a way that looks nice? I'd CNC it if I had the resources

Hi Your car is looking good, IVA in general construction section it states all wiring should be clipped at 300mm intervals.
What coil packs are you using?.
Do you know if they would be okay for 1800 BP engine?.
Regards Mick.

Hey, no I've not confirmed the distance between fuel and electrical runs yet. I've started at the front and I'm working my way back so I have some time to think before I need to overcome it.

The coil packs are from a Yaris and I understand they should work fine with the 1800. Part no is 90919 02239. You can pick them up for about £5-8 each from the bay.

Thanks for that information, I will look into that.
I had a look at the way I have run my pipes and loom down the tunnel, I had to offset the wiring loom down and then back up past the gear lever section but the pipes for fuel and brakes cleared without the offset, and I have mine clipped at 200mm.
Regards Mick.

Thanks for the info, even if I need to take a silly looking route Iím confident I can do it safely. Iím using all led read lights so I can get away with small cross section wires which combined with the fuel pump/sender and handbrake light wires result in not a lot to wiggle through.

I had a whole day on it today. The engine wiring is all done. I need to figure out a decent rout for my alternator cable and thatís about that. Next is the rear of the car then the birds nest under the dash...

Has anyone got any pictures of how they routed their wiring around the rear panel and so on?

Using adhesive pads would be great but we all know they like to detach.

I used the double sided cable tie bases. Removed the tape with a Stanley and a blob of tiger seal to stick it on. It hasnít moved in 4 years
adhesive bases
