Wiring Loom - Part 5:
When I first thinned the loom out, I cut one wire in error from the connection block that goes to the indicator/horn switch.

Rather than attempt to fix the mess I'd made of the original connecting block, I simply added an extra connection.

However, for this to work, I had to wrap a "bend" in the rest of the wires to create some slack.
( As my previous butchery had left the wires too short. )

Whilst this is clearly not as tidy as the original set up, it will work well enough for me.

I continued working my way along the loom until I got to the section of wires near the fuses.

This included the other mistake that I'd made when thinning out the loom the first time.

I'd cut out a green & black wire in error (shown below on the left with tape on), but is was now too short to rejoin at the fuse box.

In addition, there was a "stray" earth lead that wasn't going to fold up/tuck away neatly either.

So I used two more of my red connecting tubes to tidy up the wires & their routes.
- The green & black wire now joins one of the green wires a bit earlier than at the fuse box itself.
- The earth wire is now a single lead to "earth", with the rest of the wire the right size to tuck in nicely.

Which meant another section of the loom could be wrapped up.

The collection of wires heading off to the bottom of this photo are for the rear lighting.
But I still need to work out the route they will take from the bulkhead through the rest of the car.
