I have mounted 2 buttons on my steering wheel and am not sure the best way to connect with wire. I am thinking about using a coiled cable, as I have seen before, but I would prefer to use a 'spring clock', which is how most cars connect electrical to the steering wheel in a discrete way. I am worried that a coiled cable could get caught up on the steering column when I turn the wheel all the way to one side. The steering rack on a 72 240z should be 2.6 turns lock to lock, which mean a coiled cable would have to wrap 1.3 times around the steering column. What do you think?
Before rewiring basically everything, I am making a switch panel to control all of my circuits. I am also making a panel of circuit breakers in the glove box with maybe a battery shut off switch also. Here is the plan so far: Top buttons - Headlights, tail lights, Interior lights (if I ever get one) Middle area - push button start, ignition power Lower area - Fuel pump, Radiator fan, not sure what else I will post the final results soon. Any suggestions on how to divide my lighting circuits? or for the panel? I was going to do the left separate from the right side, same as the stock fusebox. FYI - Its for a 71 240z with a 350 chevy. I have no wipers, heater, or AC
