My 54/55 Beetle needs rewiring because the insulation on a lot of the wires has gone brittle and it's a fire just waiting to happen.
I'm pretty adept at electrical tasks and in most respects I'm fairly comfortable about the task that confronts me here. From looking at random Beetle wiring diagrams, I don't anticipate problems getting things working overall.
Ideally, I hope to remove the car's current wiring loom intact and use that as a template.
To do the job "properly" I will need to use wiring of the correct guage and with the correct colour coding. I also need to find PVC (or equivalent) sleeving. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, I want to avoid the Halfords style crimp connectors like the plague. To summarise all of this, I need to source the correct materials -- where can I find them?
Alternatively, a ready-made loom might be a better choice. Wolfsburg West sell that I take to be a LHD loom, are there good RHD alternatives available ready-made?
