I知 installing the Refuze it version today on the harness I shared a photo of in your ID connectors thread. The original fuse panel was cracked and had seen some heat from bad connections in the past. Especially terminal 2. You can see the discoloration of the screws on 2 and 3. The original wire to terminal 2 was in terrible shape. All black and corroded.

I think that CR does not make a fuse panel specific to your car . Their fuse panel is very well done, but only suitable for some models.
Refuze does make fuse panels for most of the air cooled Porsches.

electrical journey continues

Refuse it it is then! Thanks all.

This morning Mike H. on 912bbs gave me a link for the 602 page service manual for the 912....so I sent it to my printer with a new set of laser cartridges and a ream of paper while I got to work on the car. Plan to put it in a binder - don't like having my laptop out when under the car.

Spent another full day cleaning, ID'ing and wrapping new wires in the Tesa harness tape. The tape is wonderful - not gooey at all. I am a little compulsive so labels were placed as each area is completed and marked on my wiring diagram.





Sometimes a girl uses a little too much acetone and loses her trace marks. Luckily we have nail polish in every color with three women in the house



I cleaned the molded connectors as per timmy 2's instructions and repaired/soldered the damaged wires. Not a fan of liquid electric tape, but prefer it over the conventional stuff when I can't shrink wrap. They clicked into place for the first time!










As soon as I finish this part, I will begin to refuse...



Biggest fix of the day....the main ground for the dash had such thick paint under and over it that I am amazed that anything worked at all! There was literally no bare metal. Very satisfying to scrape that off. and run all new ground lines.

How did you like it? I ordered mine tonight. More motivation to finish my wire clean up. If it goes well I may get one for my '88

I have installed numerous ReFuze it panels on new harnesses.
They are a great replacement.
I’ll post up a photo tomorrow some time.

Picture as promised.
ReFuze It panel installed in place of the broken factory unit.
Still need to add the front harness wiring to it, but it sure looks good as far as fit, size and dimensions are concerned.

Looks nice Dennis! Mine is on its way. Did you use any solder? you seem to have fewer wires running under the panel than I do...I have a big mass that crosses under and want to minimize their bulk.

Today I made my cow hide door pockets, finished installing the original Blau Frankfort X, the single speaker as well as the stealth head unit, amp, sub, and door speakers. I have decided to run the wires along my door straps for now so am making little cow hide pockets for the wires to travel in.

I finished cleaning up the under dash wiring, and repaired the damaged and missing wires at the ignition. The seats were difficult to reinstall with all of my soundproofing but finally got them back in.

Tomorrow after work I will finish the radio wiring in the trunk and harness tape everything after I give it a test.

As I noted, I still have all of the front wiring harness to connect to it.
It will bulk up considerably when I get to it.

No solder used, all terminations have ferrules crimped on the wire ends.

I壇 have added the front harness, but family stuff took precedence today.
(Good thing this isn稚 my real job!)

Marilyn, if you can get it this clean I'll drive down to NOLA and you can do mine for me.

Always wanted to visit New Orleans.

Well Mickey,
I would LOVE a visit from one of my Porsche fanatic brethren, but this wire cleaning, replacing and repairing is a labor of love. I only see myself doing this once. There seems to be a small army of evil sadistic POs that spray black undercoating on their entire trunk contents - wires, relay and all, and then sell their cars to OCD people like me that feel compelled to clean them off. What a sticky nasty mess!
On the bright side, it is very satisfying to see the trunk transforming one wire at a time

FINE! I値l do it myself! Whatever!

Just keep posting with lots of pics and I値l copy your work.
Most of my wires look to be in decent shape so I値l do the best I can with what I have. Eventually, when I do get to where im ready for the down to the metal tub resto, I知 gonna be shooting for that clean look in the pic I posted, I HATE wires!

I like wires, but i LOVE the woven cloth harness stuff. I can't figure how to use it without staring over, and I can't even describe it, but I've seen pictures someplace and it's ideal and cool for our cars. OK, I know this is fuel line but it's the look that I seem to recall seeing for wire loom fabric. Or, I'm imagining things!
Anyone got any info/thoughts?

Fabric Woven Heat Shrink. I use Raychem. Some size are big enough to do oil line.

Timmy2, THANK YOU! Your work is amazing! And even though it's been said many times I'll say it again, your knowledge and expertise is unparalleled on this forum and I want to thank you for your patience and continuing contribution.

lateapex911, I meant, I HATE messy wires, nice neat wiring wrapped in cool stuff can actually add to the details that separate a car from the pack.
I remember seeing a pic one time of a VW bug where all the wires were routed perfectly. It was art!
