I admire your patience mate. I absolutely hate wiring.

It is slow going......

Today I ran the steering angle, brake and clutch wires through the dash then got power to the brake switch so I could figure out which wire was which and connected the ECU lead. Also jumped of the hot for the clutch switch when it arrives. Brake and clutch are wired to the ECU, held on steering until I have a sensor. Heat shrink and wire wrap came this morning and resistors this evening so I was able to get the front wheel sensors installed. I wired the signal to the ECU but still need to do the power and ground in the trunk but the sensors worked out nice....they are universal, so 5, 12, 15, 24V which meads external power resistor and I prefer to keep that with the sensor than at the ECU end so should I change sensors I'm not rewiring the car.

I think this means I can put the cabin back together tomorrow....that would be nice after so many years.

Semi-related as it involves wires.  When I switched to the F430 calipers and rotors I also eliminated the power brakes expecting ITBs and big cams would make them worthless anyway.  as I was pulling the wheel speed sensor wire I noticed the brake fluid level wire just laying there looking lonely which got me wondering if there is a fluid level sensor that will work with the compact master cylinders I have?  A quick google search didn't find anything so the question goes to the community, anyone ever seen a level sensor for a setup like this?

A guy on grassroots says a mid 60 jag sensor screws on to those masters....I guess that makes sense as they were originally AP I think an English company . Best pic I could find and seems a most excellent suggestion

....and raised another question in my mind. The current caps seal the reservoir and use a rubber bellows thing I'm used to seeing on brakes....but newer plastic reservoirs with sensors, like the one stock on the 308 from '84 so not all that "newer" are not sealed...I guess the fluid has changed and no longer requires the air be kept out???? Never really thought about it before just now.



The bigger concern that popped into my mind is just how small these reservoir are and adding a float switch would take....1/3 looking at the pic? I liked these little masters because they at look like the ones used on the 308 rally cars, those were AP and more pricey but at a glance its period race race. I think they only hold about 2 full pedal pumps making brake fluid level checks pretty important I suppose.

speaking of which I opened the masters to try to figure out what size they were inside....this one looked like shit. I drained it, cleaned off the corrosion and refilled but man, the car has only been out of the garage to move it from 1 bay to another...don't really understand this. The other 2 looked find...I don't know.

Back on wires I went to put up the fuse box...hmmmm...wonder where I put the screws? After about 30-40 minutes of searching around the shop I dug them out of this box.....I hate when that happens but that's what happens when a project goes 13+ years I guess.

Here's a sight I have not seen in many years...a mostly assembled 308 interior.

There was a bit of soot from the fire....here's the water after cleaning 1, just 1 seat bottom, not the whole seat, just the bottom.

Then for those that don't know, Ferrari carpet is wool, real wool and apparently also really delicious,  Ironically the most damaged carper pieces are the ones I removed from the car so I wouldn't damage them while working.
