Fun with Electricity
It's time for one of my favorite parts: electricals. The original 50's wiring was a bit scary and not entirely functioning. Sounds like a good excuse to start from scratch.
I started on the electricals a couple of weeks ago. You may have noticed a bunch of obnoxious blue pipes and boxes all over Lynnetta's shiny new insulation. These plastic tubes are ENT conduit. They protect the wiring from errant rivets and make it easier for me to add additional circuits later.
The master plan on the left, and the three mugs of coffee it took to put it together on the right.
Just in time, the brains of the operation arrived. It's a Progressive Dynamics all-in-one AC breaker box, DC fuse box, 120v to 12v converter, and battery charger. It's going under the street side twin.
