Although classic car electrical systems are notoriously idiosyncratic, temperamental and difficult to work with, a key to keeping an older vehicle on the road is correct and regular maintenance of the electrics. This book contains extensive, well-illustrated information for the classic enthusiast who wishes to service, repair or upgrade their car. The combination of the basics of how and why things work, all in plain language, along with extensive colour photos and diagrams means that, with a reasonable tool kit, a little common sense and this book, the owner should be able to tackle pretty much any electrical fault in any classic car as well as maintenance. Definitely a must have for anyone who owns, or plans to own a classic.
