Electrics: Before and After

Alright folks,

After being slated for my electrics last year, I decided to have a wee tidy up. Now - i am merely a mechi, so all this electrickery doesn't suit me too well. this is my best effort, and hope its up to scratch. With regards to fuse sizes, they are all 10a at the moment, but will be changed accordingly. Also the GPS has an in-line fuse, but i've fused it anyway, just for the sake of keeping everything together.

Waiting for my Dymo Labeller to arrive so that i can label it all up. Lettuce ken what you think, and how many improvements are required.

Cheers

Si

Coincided tinning the ring crimps etc with solder, and use a few small cable ties to stop gravity taking a toll on the push on connectors. But look a neat job...

personally i would remove the gps inline fuse as its a different type and ever-so-handy to just carry a handful of spare blade fuses.

Aye. If it's a lower rating, you could just replace it with one of these: Linky

Can I suggest some of those stickyback cable clips to hold the wiring and stop it moving when the bost slams about - vibration is a killer for electrical connections. Another reason for losing the inline fuse, I've found those types particularly problematic

Bear in mind the sticky pads don't like damp. I spent 3 hours removing the sticky pads from some this week and roughed them up and sikaflexed them on.
