Witchcraft!

I just replaced the original fusebox with a new magical one from the future which isn't all hot and melty and gives me more than 9 volts at the headlights! Amaze.

And since all my thread images are poked, here's one so you and I don't forget what she looks like.

That looks good. Always wanted to do something similar to my car.
How about writing something up as to how you did this and where you bought parts from.
Would be good to send in a mail-out or log in as an upgrade for the early Zs

You could send it directly to me if you like.

There's not really much to the install. Just plug it in.

It did take me a while as I started fixing the rubbish job I did of the stereo install years ago.

Bought the fuse box from here. Shipping is damn pricy, so would make sense to buy as a group.

Looks awesome, been wanting to do that for sometime but i spend way to much there each time and it keeps getting dropped out of the shopping cart :lol:

Thanks, yep it's working well.

Yeah image hosting is a real pain. I now host them in my own AWS S3 account. Which works for me, but wouldn't recommend unless you're into IT.

Hey mikey

You build looks awesome! I am looking at doing a similar build and was hoping to pick your brain on a few things. I tried to send you a message, but is stuck in my outbox. Am I able to contact you to ask you a few questions?

Cheers

Hey.

No dramas. One of the biggest questions I have is where you got some of you exterior parts, in particular the front spoiler and fender mirrors. I know you can get them from USA, but was hoping to get them closer to home if possible
