Viva GT fuse box
So last week on facebook I pondered a question for everyone, namely “what is the right colour chopping board for a Viva GT”?, to which the answer came back from all that answered “blue”. So naturally I have ignored all of that and plumped for a red chopping board instead.
The reason I asked was that the cheapest chopping board I found are £3 in Asda but you get three boards.
Why do I need them? well the current wiring was finished off with a mind to lay it all out on the parcel shelf, this plan has since changed and with the removal of the hydraulic top up pots from the glove box, it seems right to move as much of the electrics up into the glove box as I can. So the fuse box and the ECU have been relocated onto a cut-up chopping board and positioned inside the glove box out of the way.
It leaves the alarm control box, which will hide under the parcel shelf on the passenger side. There are also four relays, which will also live in the glove box.
It’s taken several days of thinking and many trial and error attempts to untangle the wiring, get the board cut to shape and find a way to secure it all in place. I think its about there now and once I reconnect the wires I should see some opening in working on the heater box area.
As a little PS to this post, I ordered and had delivered from Australia a quick shift kit for the gearbox. It’s very smart and I am pleased with the functionality as well as the finish.
Yes that is all the dash hanging down, what a mess, but needed in order to sort out the brakes clutch and heater. Once its all odne the wiring can all go back in place and the interior can finally get fitted.
