Automotive Wiring: A Practical Guide to Wiring Your Hot Rod or Custom Car (Motorbooks Workshop)by Dennis W. Parks
Synopses & Reviews
In the world of automotive do-it-yourself projects it seems there’s always been an air of mystery surrounding electrical wiring. “Do I have the right size and the right kind of wire? How do I connect them? What kind of fuse? What the heck is a diode, solenoid, or an SPST?"
Automotive Wiring: A Practical Guide to Wiring Your Hot Rod or Custom Car, answers all these questions and more, providing you with the knowledge and confidence to do everything from rewiring your hot rod or custom car to adding the latest modern accessories, such as GPS, Bluetooth, and iPods. With valuable information about tools and test equipment, lighting, ignition, charging systems, engine monitoring systems, switches, troubleshooting, and much more, Automotive Wiring; A Practical Guide to Wiring Your Hot Rod or Custom Car is a must-have for every do-it-yourselfer’s library.
Automotive wiring is a primary skill required for proper completion and safe operation of any custom build, whether it is a traditional custom, hot rod, or classic daily driver. While restorers typically have the option of buying a new or reproduction wiring harness, custom enthusiasts often have few options except to figure out how to do it themselves. This book guides builders through every step from determining what components they need, to selecting wire type and gauge, methods of connection, and other considerations. The book includes numerous charts showing typical configurations and suggested installations. A troubleshooting section lends a hand in tracking down the inevitable problems that can arise.
