guages and engine bay with fuel pump and filter thing - I will heed your collective advise and take a bunch of electric photos and post them before I proceed.

My suggestion would be to install a battery disconnect on one of the battery terminals or just remove one cable end to eliminate the possibility of a fire while parked. Old cars with shady wiring can burn themselves and their garages. Best to be insured in any case for actual loss.

Queenie, so there are no "rain hats" on the carb intake stacks . . . nothing to keep water from entering them? If not, you will want to make taking care of that a high priority (such as installing a proper, filter assembly made for those two-barrel Webers), considering your climate.

Thank you. It has a disconnect switch. I will start using it when parked. Good idea. Just bought a battery disconnect for my other car. I like the ease of disconnecting it whenever I am working on it. I am a fraidy cat when it comes to electricity.

What is a rain hat? No, there is nothing over the 4 carbs except for the wire mesh shown. What would the filter assembly look like?

As far as dry out...My one car garage is open to air on 2 sides. We are having tropical storm season here and it has stormed daily. I have parked the outlaw in the garage, but hate to have my dd 3.2 out in the storm as it leaks too (but not lately.) I hooked up fans and dried the majority of the water out last week, but our ambient humidity right this moment is 100%

I will find some pics of what I'm talking about and post, if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

For now, you need to cover those with aluminum foil, or similar, when parked - water is entering there and then collecting on the cylinder head valves and will cause corrosion. Not to mention water will enter the cylinders where valves are open and cause corrosion in there, too.

A weather/waterproof car cover to protect your investment and keep water from entering the engine.

Ouch.

Your car is soaked.

Get a hunk of visqueen, make a tent and seal the car off, bricks, timbers, lincoln logs, etc and buy a dehumidifier. Turn it on, under the tent, when you get home from work, shut it off when going to work until satisfied it's working then leave it on for a few days. That stuff in your gauges will go away.

Anything like this. May be a dub engine, but you get the idea. Cover.

2 barrel rain hats.

Water entry can hydrolock your engine as well, not what you want to happen.

As he indicated in the post above this one, Max was talking about water entering "your" engine due to the "race track only" screens over the intake stacks. And yes, "crazy", as you said, to put those on a street car.

Will look closely at your wiring pics, but at first glance, looks like spaghetti, unfortunately.
