1. The Control Box is a big black box mounted on the bulkhead in the =
engine comp, you cant miss it. If its not there, its because the DPO made =
an AC conversion where its not needed. The voltage stabilizer should be on =
the "shelf" as well.
2. Rebuilding my 69 Spit I bought a new wiring loom from Rimmer (=A390), =
as the DPO of my car had redone the system with whatever wiring he could =
find in his garage i suppose - it was all white.....and I can strongly =
suggest it! The fit is perfect and the colors are exactly those of the =
wiring diagram so its no problem throwing the thing in (when the car is in =
1000 pieces anyway).

The next chapter in the everchanging Spitfire saga...
Last week everything was fine. Yesterday I put in new demister hoses =
(they were missing) and now none of the lights, wiper motor, or =
heater motor work. I'm sure I have a short somewhere, but a couple =
hours of poking around this morning failed to turn up anything.
My questions are:
1. in a wiring diagram I have there is a Control Box and Voltage =
Stabliser listed. As it looks like the previous owner(s) redid the =
entire system, where should these be?
2. If I took the plunge and decided to re-wire the car (all of my =
wires are either red, yellow, brown, or grey, making it very =
difficult to ascertain what goes with what) would a new loom be in =
the original colours, or would it be better to work with what I have?
Any comments on the problem would be most appreciated. Thanks.
