Cal Spyder Electrics

Cal Spyder Electrics


Before I took a week off for a vacation with my family, I worked a little bit on the Cal Spyder at François’ shop. The gauges were installed and the connected to the wiring harness. It took a lot of “eyeballing” to make sure everything was level and lined up. The last thing you wanted was a cockeyed gauge for the owner to look at!

After the gauges were installed, I checked and double checked the connections to the wiring harness. The wiring was remanufactured during a previous restoration, but not all of it followed the original wiring schematic, so I had to make sure nothing was connected incorrectly. After a certain point, there was nothing left but to cross my fingers and connect the battery. I’m happy to report there was no smoke, and besides a few bad grounds for the turn signals, all the circuits I connected worked.

Spring Party Update:
I will post the request on the main page, but If you’d like to bring something to the party, bring a dessert like the last party. Michael Bayer had generously offered to provide the food for the party on May 3rd, but I think it would be great to supplement the food with some local desserts. Thanks! Are you getting excited about the party? I know I am!

Just a reminder, I’m looking for a new Vintage Ferrari Project. If you have, or know of a restoration project, please let me know. It would be great to restore another car on this website! My E-mail.
