Paul. The mystery is that there are no joints, it is one continuous piece of wire from voltage reducer panel to instrument cluster. Came off a spool of 16 gauge automotive wire (50 volt rated fuel resistant etc.) and only thing different than other places that same wire is used is the antifreeze leak last year was in the vacinity. Even a mystery there, the wire is coming out of a loom above the panel and hanging down to go into the lowest terminal of the panel so if it was antifreeze it would have had to wick it's way 3 inches or so UP the wire to do that damage. Here is a picture of the panel with the rotted wire sticking out. Here is a picture during installation and before shakedown showing the heater and AC connections above panel. The dripping on the carpet that led me to the problem did bleach out some of the carpet color (had to restore) but even more mysterious, that spot was to the left of the end of the perf cage around the circuitry. And finally here is a shot of the car show that we missed out on (wife and I drove over there in suv later in the afternoon when I knew I had the problem fixed) with lots of the cars already gone. Looks like it would have been good fun.
