Detailed Description

No matter how many cars you've built, there's likely one job you always farm out to an expert. The job is wiring, and the truth is, there's no need to send this work to anyone else. With a little help from this book and some well-designed products, even the novice can wire from scratch or add circuits to power that new air conditioning system.

Written by Dennis Overholser, avid hot rodder and long-time technical-specialist for Painless Performance Products, the book takes the reader through the theory of 12 volt DC electronics, and then through a series of chapters that explain the best way to install and repair wiring and harnesses.

From batteries, starters and alternators; Dennis goes on to discuss the installation of fuel injection; conversion from 6 to 12 volts; installation of a complete harness; and troubleshooting those little gremlins that crop up in almost any project vehicle.
