Why does everyone say these cars are hard to wire?

There’s all kinds of room to work with in my car. 😳F7352069-13EF-4A2A-8CBD-5AFE2EC1955C.thumb.jpeg.396aa06afa288a1da5775ab1078e9611.jpeg

Because they've never wired a TR6 or a SIII E-type!

Ray calls that a "feature"  :D

 

 

When re-wiring, try to to block the engineered-in,  flow-through ventilation.

Only parts of this car will ever see the road again. I just felt it was too far gone in all of the wrong places to be saved.

Mine was a non-sunroof Granada ‘69 with a really faded repaint, but red none the less. The bulk of the damage happened within the first 20yrs of its life. It’s been in dry storage since then. I found mouse nests in both aprons. Not sure if the rust begat the nests or the nests begat the rust. This car was also missing the pillar mounted antenna- who knows for how long. The heater box had silcone blobbed on it here and there, the windshield and back glass had copious amounts of silicone smeared over the seals, as did most penitrations into the trunk cavity.
