    Although I rebuilt my car last year I didn't finish it off with a new wiring loom as I was so eager to get her out on the road before the years end. I thought I'd got someone lined up for re-wiring the car over the next couple of months but after much debating I've decided they ain't the right person for the job so................
    Does anyone know of someone who'd be up for and is capable of rewiring an S30, doing a tidy job & doing it within the next couple of months?
    I'd prefer it done fairly local to me, midlands area.
    Cheers

    In that case, isn't isn't able to configure a new loom "off the car" an then just pop over to customers location and strip out old and install new?

    It's about 150 miles from me. I'd prefer someone closer to me tbh, but if the guy knows his onions, charges a fair price and actually cracks on and does the work with care and diligence I'd be game.

    Something like that would be great. I rent a lockup with electrics & a car lift so said person would have a nice dry & warm place to work on the car. I can also offer a place to stay for a few days if needed.

    Hi Jake

    I have some one in the west midlands who repaired my very old wiring. He is a mobile mechanic. Let me know if you want his details.

    Thanks

    I'm still searching for someone to re-wire the Z. Seems it's not as easy to find someone as you might think(or as I thought) :(
    The car's electrics are all working except for the heated front screen(not been wired in yet), the door locks(not been wired back up since the rebuild) & some dash bulbs(the nrom ;) ) but ideally I'm after the car getting a total rewire including a new loom or if not at least a decent refresh
    If anyone has any ideas give me a shout!

    Cheers

    I have an auto electrician who can do the job Jake but not local to you, he is in Cheshire. Could maybe do the work at my farm unit if you get stuck and can't find anyone nearby to you.

    You could opt for a "painless" generic harness. This would probably be the cheapest starting point although it wouldn't be the same as a zed harness. If you go for a custom loom using modern cables it will nit be cheap. The wire I've just used to do my engine loom is not cheap at 63p/m. The MK1 escort he is doing at the moment will be a good couple of grand.

    63p per metre! You cheapskate Johny :D :p
    So 2k / 63p = almost 2 miles of wire. :eek: Blimey your car must be longer than mine!
    Oh what's that? Oh you've gotta pay the guy as well! Oh fair enough then :thumbs:


    ;)
