Thinking of rewiring my whole dam* car

After fighting electrical gremlins for the past year --fuel pump circuit, parking light circuit, AC....I'm thinking about gutting all the electricals from my 930 and rewiring with a new harness. Tired of chasing shorts and opens, some of which I still haven't tracked down. Is there anyone who makes harnesses for a Euro 930? Probably not but thought I would throw it out there....

Search username timmy2. He builds harnesses but will probably need the old one as a guide. He usually does engines only but has done other early model cars in the past.

Re-wiring is a daunting task. I moved the wiring from a crashed '86 to my RST build and it took me probably four months devoting 20hrs/wk to get sorted out, and that was with no motor, pedals and interior. Included some re-wiring, but not much. The biggest PITA is removing and replacing the wiring thru the tunnel and around the pedals area(which I think would have to be removed in your case).
I don't know if you can even find enough wire color combinations to make heads or tails of the end result.
Notwithstanding, you should contact Timmy2 for expert advice. He did a fabulous job which my engine re-wiring.
Cheers,
Johan

almost have my wiring totally torn out of my tub. already exchanged notes with Dennis about having him build all new harnesses. custom, as I do not plan to reinstall a lot of stuff such as pwr window, pwr mirrors, courtesy lights, etc. and want some customer independent switches for the FPs and dual ign and gauges.

got this car with engine bay burned wiring due to cracked muffler spewing hot exhaust up into the engine bay.

did not want to totally strip and rebuild this beast and then chase wiring issues for the rest of my life....

good luck, will watch for your posts rewiring.

I feel your pain brother!

While not on my 930, I had the engine wiring harness hacked to sheet by the former owner on one of my other "fun" cars and had to buy a whole other running car to donate and harvest the harness.

BTW I'm in Houston too.

You might consider a motec power distribution module if you go this route. The PDM replaces all the circuitry including fuses, relays etc. Not cheap, but highly customizeable.
