Anybody got pics of a Wiring Works harness, pre-installed? Particularly the ends/colours.


Sorry Mate, I don't. But I do have pictures of the wiring harness for the Guinness Brewery?? REALLY!


here ya go...a little of both....54 harness from wiring works .the colors are all proper but not exact to factory striping for the multi colored wires. all the ends are typically bare from what i have used.you either have to solder ,put ferrules or connectors on yourself.wiring works is the best option ive ever seen/used. worth the money in my opinion.

Yep, we've got it and it's beautiful. It's a very limitted stock though and we have to wait for a mill run for more. Who knows how long that will take. You can PM me here for details.

The hinge Mark had was not exactly the same, although it was pretty close, i think he just found it at a supplier in LA. He told me it was a metric sized hinge. Are you in the UK? A good engineering supplier should be able to get metric piano hinge near to the correct size.

Mark, people don't always realize how much time and effort goes into doing a "small" project like this. It is rare to make money on these type of parts that are really just supporting the hobby. I think your price is right on.

I meant the finished product grasshopper. You install them with a screw driver so I would call them screws.

gotcha, i wasnt sure about that myself. i thought i had seen official catalogs list similar items as bolts based on being a machine thread. technicalities! jeesh Embarassed Laughing
i actually call them either,depending how i feel that day.

I can never keep that stuff straight. I was told that an electric motor is a "motor" and an internal combustion engine is an "engine". Why then do we put "motor" oil in the "engine"?
