Regarding why I’d like to rewire my 620.

A number of the connections are far too tight from previous repairs

I have unplugged wires that were wrapped around the heater hose.

Im absolutely certain that this loose rats nest isn’t from the factory.

This is not how you should connect this resistor.

I've seen duct tape and even masking tape wrapped around wires twisted together. A door bell switch tied to the column for a horn button. A water faucet for the heater control. A wall light switch for the headlights... classic!

Fuck alot of Datsun owners!!!!!!!!!!!! Believe it or not!!!!!!!


I couldn’t sort out how to send pics in the messages so I figured I’d just show everyone what I was talking about.  Most of my finds we’re done with no pictures, but this gives you a reasonable understanding.

I like the light switch idea.  Honestly the best “mod” I’ve seen was on a 79’ Corvette.  Dude had cut out part of the frame and put in fiberglass sandwiched between aluminum to make the car lighter.  He took it to the strip and ripped it in half.  So things could be worse. 
 

Besides, I like wiring and I get a nice little discount through Painless, so I’ll be removing all of this.
