Fuse Box Wiring Color Code Cardboard Remake

 

I've design new artwork for the back of the fuse box. There are a few things to note:

 

1) When printing, remember to set the print size to "Actual Size". Print to A4 paper.

2) If prompted for password just type: faq

3) Remember to use a suitable cardboard. I used a heat resistant, waterproof 350gsm paper.

4) Use proper safety when using X-Acto knife or other blades.

About the artwork:

 

On the original cardboard there are 6 terminal blades that do not have their own space but only an incision made on the cardboard. BMW design the cardboard this way so that the board fits tight in its place. I've made provision for this option so instead of cutting around these 6 locations, just make incision using a sharp blade (follow the printed pattern). See sample images here:

User Feedback


Very nice.  Not many folks ever see the underside of the fuse box, but for those restoring/rebuilding a cobbled-together, futzed-with electrical system, this will be most helpful.

 

Bravo.

"On the original cardboard there are 6 terminal blades that do not have their own space but only an incision"

 

Very nice sleuthing and a beautiful, very much needed piece to add to the faq's restoration archives.

 

Would it be an imposition to ask for a similar graphic for some of our members who are short a few fuses?  (I did not mention any names!).

 

I can provide a faded version of the 6 fuse card if that would help.

 

Thank you.

This is really excellent.  I downloaded it and will use it when I get everything put back together after painting.  Thanks!

Sure

I need a scanned copy of the actual cardboard on A4 paper without any resize. I'll do the rest.

 

Cheers
