The whole rib gets a rewire and the lads break out some very serious looking battery cables, they unwind the whole drum and then thread the two ends from the engine to the console, when these tails are the right length the looped end is cut to size at the engine so there is no wastage, very impressive

Thank goodness for Biffer's hose
