got everything sorted today
what melted


the wire was for my brake light switch and horn


assuming the new steering wheel shorted it out
cut out the loom


had to rewire my brake lights, pass. headlight and indicators, and also my ignition barrell burnt out, so now on a secret push start

kept the wiring as neat as possible, and shultzed up all under the bonnet.



still need to conduit cover it all, and fit a carpet.
also will be removing the copper lines and replcing with push fit connectors with nylon lines and dash mounted valves when it arrives
