My original wiring was an abomination!!!!
- Problem 1. There was a lot of wiring not actually required from the MX5 that remained in the loom = Excess weight.
- Problem 2. There was large sections of wires not covered with anything to protect or tidy them up = Potential short and a bit rubbish.
- Problem 3. To solve Problem 2, I just wrapped everything in orange electrical tape (colour coordinated you see!) including cable tied chunks of Problem 1 which also got wrapped into an orange clump of ugly = Rather aesthetically shocking - pun intended.

Strangely, I never had any electrical issues, so why take out something that works? Well I got to the stage of trying to avoid taking the bonnet off due to the unsightly mess that the wiring was. Unfortunately, car enthusiasts, being the strange animals we are, always wanted the bonnet off to check out the heart of the machine in front of them. Queue awkward "ignore the wiring" comments....

Don't hold your breathe though, this may take a while!
