This engine is looking awesome!...seriously how does one get that much
detail in regard to the plug leads from the dizzy to the plugs?.  I tried it and ended up
with a "Mush Mess" of bits of plastic, glue & wire!. I had another go using copper wire
then painted (ref: my Chuck Millers Fire Truck post - workshop), but even then it's not
great.   So how do you guys do it???... Jerry

the dizzy is a resin one with pre drilled holes from The Parts Box ( have tried many times over the last week to place an order with them but keep getting a message saying the site is to busy!) i usually drill the holes out a bit more, then add the wires, the wires came from Paul ( i think) but are readily available from many parts suppliers, the wire usually comes with a piece of plastic tube to make the plug boots, generally i cut 9 leads of varying lenghts add the boots then superglue one end into the holes in the dizzy, the dizzy is then painted and when dry the boots slid down the wire untill they are correctly seated, the heads (or as in this case the valve covers) are then drilled with a fine bit (about .5 of a mill), the completed dizzy is then glued in place and then each of the wires are fitted, trimmed and superglued in place and the boots are slid down the wire. this is how i do it others may have a better idea, i know that some dizzy's come with the wiring already attached. hope this helps

Thanks so much for that info. it certainly finishes off the look of the engine. Will get the bits required and give
a real good go!.  Thank you again DV8. Cheers Jerry.
