Very labor-intensive to replace all that wiring, better
to walk away from it.
But take it easy with that scooter.

Michael,

Very labor-intensive and parts for that year are getting hard to find
not to mention more expensive, funny how the shingle first told me it
was junk, then offered  junk it for FREE, then offered to reduce my
bill for it (the one for NOT fixing it), then offered me a little
money for it. Car salesmen!

A real nice guy who works for a company I have interests in, rebuilds
MGB's for himself and has been bugging about selling it, I paid the
bill, and sold him the car for a dollar (full disclosure). WhenI
bought it was two years old with 30K and put 21K on it, besides the
original clear coat which is lifting in places it was in perfect shape
body wise. He will fix it up and give a good home.

Good choices.
And more control on your part.

For garden-variety transport, especially in bad weather,
I suggest a Kia Rio, and a Scan-Gauge from Auto-Zone.
Or install a vacuum gauge.

And buy a new one every four or five years so they don't fall apart around
you.

How well has that ScanGuage been working for you?

What data do you monitor and how has it benefited you?
