Good diagrams but no "How to"

April 06, 2015
I can get schematics and diagrams from the internet. Was hoping for more "How to" vs. wiring diagrams. I wanted expert suggestions on where to start, where to run wiring, looms, fasteners, connectors, testing and such. Kinda disappointed..
No, I would not recommend this product.

A lot of information somewhat confusing at times. Written in cartoon characters. Maybe a good reference book for the shelf.

All I need for any ride

September 23, 2014
This little booklet is all you need to wire any ride. It covers all the big three. I also like the way it's layed out with cool looking drawings and characters with comedy. Also laying out small circuts and larger circuits. Even a circut for your trailer. Not to forget it is a great book to trouble shoot an existing circuit.
Pros:
  • Easy to follow
Cons:
  • ?
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great refresher book

September 11, 2014
For guys like me who've forgotten 'the basics' on wiring a car or truck this book is a must have. It has already come in handy on rewiring my 1950 Chevrolet pickup to a 12 volt alternator system along with adding air conditioning.
Pros:
  • the price
  • Easy to understand
Cons:
  • no cons
Yes, I recommend this product.

Book was a disappointment.

August 10, 2014
No wonder they have a no return policy after you open the plastic wrapper. Was not what I expected. This is my first wiring project and need more info than this cartoon book provides.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Great Read

Nice little book. It may seem basic to some of the more experienced but covers all the systems and individual items in an electrical wiring job.

If there is no wiring left in your 1951 to use as a pattern this book will be very useful in laying out where wires go and the purpose. It is a universal guideline helpful to most any application.
