    An often under-appreciated part of historical vehicles, the electrical bits!

    Here's a rather ingenious thing I discovered while dismantling a Universal Carrier Mk II (don't worry, she'll be back together soon enough); the fuses are Bakelite boards, with thin wire wound around it, and a strand of it running across the connectors.

    Basically, if a fuse burns out, you just unwind more wire from the spool, instant replacement.

    Reminds me of the electrics on old Brit bikes, courtesy of Joseph Lucas Prince of Darkness!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
