Ok so thats the wiring sorted except for around the engine where I can't get at yet. New fusebox and relays integrated into the original loom. All the surplus and dodgy wiring binned.

Good luck with the project! Wiring looks much better now 8) Is that the module from CBS? Seeing that is making me think that it's time I got back to mine :roll: :lol:

Yea from CBS. It made the job a lot easier. If I had stuck with that Metro PCB it would have been a nightmare.

The electrics all work now. Next up is that grotty dashboard. It reminds me of something you would find in a Vauxhall Shove-it. When I found out the only way to remove it was via the windscreen aperture its days were numbered.
So...tried this instead:

Yes had one but sent it back. £20 quid for a cheap flimsy bit of plastic with no means to attach to the fuse box. :evil:
Way overpriced imo.

Great to see another Rossa project and somebody else's approach to it but at the same time it depresses me :( You guys all seem to work so quickly whereas I've been at mine for well over 2 years now..... :roll: :D
