I see stripes! - DERBY - March 4, 2020

The period correct AKA "neurotic side" of me convinced me that Derby would not be complete if I didn't get the proper taping done on the wiring harness...

Tape is from Germany, the same kind of fabric tape they used from factory. Thank you North Bay Bavarian ! Love the work you have been doing to keep Derby PC! 😉

What about that green battery connector?  Was that OE in Derby's year?  Not try to add to your neurosis, just wondering.

I have the same green connector that allows one to disconnect the negative terminal to minimize battery drain.  Also, I'm told that it's better for the battery to be disconnected whenever it's connected to a battery tender to minimize issues with the alternator.

When the car was imported to the states, the previous owner from Germany had it on, so I just left it on to help save the battery as its a 6volt. However, due to my "neurosis"... I was able to contact Bosch in Germany, and I am having them send me a 6volt battery to install in Derby.. should be here soon... 😉

Lisa, that green disconnect fitting is definitely period, but aftermarket.  Were it my car, I'd leave it on for the reasons stated above.  And BTW you can use the same 6 volt battery that goes in a pre 1967 VW Beetle in Derby: either a Group 17 or 19; should be available in the States with a little searching (that battery also fits my Renault 4CVs)
