Default A favour..

Hi I'm wondering if one of you kind lot could do me a massive favour, I'm making a wiring loom up for my mini out of the car but I'm also a few hours drive away from my mini, this is where the favour comes in.
if someone could roughly measure basically from the rear bench that's where my fuse box would be down to the floor pan along the passenger side of the car the sill area then up the front floor pan behind the dash to roughly the brake pedal. Think of the way would run wire along the car, trying to keep to the edge as much as possible then coming across behind the dash, if someone could do this be greatly appreciated I was planning to do it with string.... Thanks in advance.

I can measure this for you but will need more information of where you plan to put the fuse box. The rear bench is 4 feet wide!

Off the top of my head its around 3.5mtrs.
Iran a 2.5mtr fuel line from a MPi tank in the boot, through the rear bulkhead, along the bench down to the floor, along the sill and then up through the bulkhead.
Only looking at an extra metre to get you behind the dash.

Cheers to you both, from the centre of the rear bench, the support going to the floor would be perfect. Although instant custards guesstimate is probably enough . It's amazing how much routing round the car adds to length and weight!

So instant custard your guess to from the rear bench to the bulkhead, now from engine wires and wipers etc would be 2.5ish meters. Obviously I will have more wire but its to tape up one forward loom and have the things splicing off at roughly the right place rather than have several separate things all going to the front.

Yes I've measured it and I'd say 3 -3.5 meters too.

Thanks to you both again! Better get cracking with this wiring. Why I thought was a good idea I don't know!

I made my own loom from scratch. I bought 137 meters of cable and used most of it...

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the mini I can only find the 1970 wiring diagram, trying to sort out the wiring between my stalks (the 1989+ ones) and the ignition.
