One final push on the wiring to tidy up the boot area . Ive changed the indicator wires which were knacked especially at the bulb terminal end , luckily i had some NOS terminals for these but no plain green wire so they are now green/ red ( passengers side ) and green / white ( drivers ) instead of just plain green to match the main wiring for indicators , Theres now dedicated earthing points and individual earth wires for every thing ,ive used brass bolts for better contact on these two earthing points , each indicator has their own earth supply as there can be earth issues through the mounting screws . Ive loom taped up most of the wiring that shows for neatness.
Everything is working perfectly :D :D

Very neat! You have my total admiration Sir.
Just one question: I see you're using loom tape. Is it any advantage to use that over using heat shrink sleeve/tube?
I'm asking because a) loom tape is hard to find (at reasonable cost) where I am, and b) heat shrink is quite handy when using suitable dimensions.

Loom tape is the way looms for Imps were made and i have a supply of it here .
Heat shrink is fine but its difficult to feed many wires through it especially if its a longish single length and also not as neat if the loom splits from one into say two or more branches for want of a better word .
Also if you do need to replace a wire or add an additional one then you would need to slit the heat shrink the full length which isnt easy .
Loom tape just unwraps so its easy to add new wires .
Heat shrink is good though , i used some on this last job but not in long lengths .
Hope that makes sense . :)

I use loom tape too. What frustrates me about it though, is wrapping cables with the uncut tape still on the reel - it's difficult to keep it nice, neat, and TIGHT and at the same stop the tape falling off the reel. :x

:idea: If only there were a formula to work out exactly the right length of tape for a given bunch of wires for a given cable run you could cut tape to length and manage the excess much better! :)

Re: Noddys News 24, Boot light sorted out

Post by Dave ' Linwood ' Lane » Sat Nov 22, 2014 7:28 pm

Years ago I fitted a light in the boot . Theres an on - off switch fitted but it was just screwed through a hole in the cardboard trim .
Not up to my standard really :roll: :shock:
So today I made a mounting bracket so it stays put even when you move the card trim .
This leaves a rather cheap looking hole in the board and although this is carpeted needed something to neaten it up.
A quick rummage about found a spare Stainless rear window lock outer trim ring which having nice bend in tabs fitted a treat ,
fitted the label back on via two tiny nuts and bolts and it all looks a lot better .
Light is just a spare interior light with the switch removed and theres also a door light switch wired in so you cant leave it on by mistake . :D :D

Re: Noddys News 24, Fuse box cover .

Post by Dave ' Linwood ' Lane » Sun Nov 23, 2014 1:15 pm

Well the boot upgrade is now all finished except for some fuse labels .
There was a slight design flaw fitting the fuse boxes in the Singer where I did.
That was getting the covers off the boxes with the cardboard trim in situ , I could of just cut more card away but didnt fancy that option.
So Ive done away with the original covers and made a different cover that attaches to the board via a central knurled nut and two bits of velcro with one at each end that grabs hold of the carpet very well , this stops it spinning on the bolt which is bolted to the board .
Its a bit of clear acrylic that i scrounged from a number plate makers as it was meant to be for a number plate :lol:
To remove it its just a case of undoing the nut and pulling :D , just need some labels for it now ,

Re: Noddys News 24, Period tax disc holders

Post by Dave ' Linwood ' Lane » Tue Nov 25, 2014 5:32 pm

With the demise of the tax disc its now possible and legal to put chronically out of date discs on display .
With this in mind ive restored a couple of Wingard tax disc holders from the late 50s / early 60s .
These are technically a bit old but the suction ones just fall off the screen especially on a hot day , these have an alloy frame thats sticks to the screen and its easy to do using black double sided 1mm foam tape .
Heres the finished holders , one for each car :)

Re: Noddys News 24, One final wiring job.

Post by Dave ' Linwood ' Lane » Wed Nov 26, 2014 5:40 pm

Just finished the final wiring upgrade on the Singer.
This involved the L534 rear number plate lights. Lucarse in their infinite wisdom only supply a foot of wire on these meaning that you have to have a connector to link the two together then on to the N/S rear light supply .
Trouble is crud and damp gets into the connection and the lights eventually give up .
So having two NOS bulb terminal crimps meant i could make up two full length leads and have no connector underneath to rot out.
Ive fed the wire through some black sleeving from work for extra protection.
Much better :D

Doesnt really matter how you wire it Geoff , Ive wired both number plate lights from the passenger side for the simple reason that on my Singer the passenger side rear light is fed via the drivers side rear light so there was only one spare bullet connection on the drivers side .
The passenger side has two spare so one for each number plate light.
Did that make any sense whatsoever :roll:

Having had a bit of a think ive removed the word " spare " from No 4 on the switched box and sprayed the lid with clear lacquer to seal the wording , no point in spraying the word spare on because if i need to use it i wont get be able to get the writting off. :(

Re: Noddys News 24, Fuse box labeled

Post by Dave ' Linwood ' Lane » Fri Nov 28, 2014 7:54 pm

Finished the other fuse boxes today , engine bay one was easy as it was just a case of labelling and lacquer .
The one on the O/S inner arch in the boot was a bit tricky .
Its not the best place for it but to fit it anywhere else would have meant a massive de-looming and an equally massive re-wire :roll: .
After the fire I did decide to fit it where it is just for the ease of fitting and wiring. The horn relay is fitted here as well for the same reason .
By far the biggest problem was getting to the fuse box if there was ever a problem , this would involve removing all the card board trim from the boot floor and the arch , easy in a warm garage but it would be a world of pain on a rainy dark night.
So after much thought ive made an access hole in the corner of the cardboard trim and a cover from the remains of the butchered number plate .
Ive used the same knurled brass nuts as the other cover and labelled it up so it matches .
Getting a fuse out now takes seconds and not ages which is great, :D
Not the prettiest mod ever but it does the job :) :D

Sometimes , very very rarely but sometimes you have to blow your own trumpet and this is one of these times for me :o .
As you may of noticed ive been faffing about in the boot rather a lot doing the wiring.
The card trim is held up with 5 metal tabs you have to bend every time the trim is removed , theses only so much bending they will cope with before they snap off. In fact two of the Singers have already gone leaving the middle and the end ones still intact .
There must be a better way :?:
And there IS :idea: .
Brass knurled nuts :D :D , i bent the tabs one last time but vertically , drilled a small hole in each , added a brass 4BA stud to each one and drilled a small hole in the board trim a bit further down
So much better . :D :D

Re: Noddy,s News 24 , Modding my own momentary switch for wi

Post by Dave ' Linwood ' Lane » Fri Dec 12, 2014 7:21 pm

Well after a few postings on another thread about wipers it got me thinking of fitting a momentary on switch for the wiper , My BMW has this and its really handy for fine drizzle rather than turning the wipers on then off .
I wanted a push type switch that also needed to be quite long so as to be easy reach from the steering wheel.
Nothing like this seems to exist so what the hell il make up my own .
Wipers are switched via the earth as standard and not the live as with most things so all the switch has to do is earth out a wire connected to the wipers .
Heres my step by step guide to making your own switch :lol:
