Delectrified - Gutting the Ambulance Electrical looms - Amber 2.0: Ep.2

  • Published on Jan 13, 2022
  • During the last video whilst stripping down the engine bay I'd also started to pull apart the cab interior in prep for removing the loom. With the flooring a seats out I began sorting & labelling all of the wiring into what needed to stay and what to tear out.
    Stripping the van basically back to a body shell has given me some rare chances to do repairs and improvements that will help the van and make life easier, so I made some tweaks before starting to run the new wiring loom in.

    I absolutely love your videos! I don’t remember when I laughed so hard when you were doing your version of the salsa 💃. Hysterical to say the least 🤣🤣😂😂. Your creative ways of making a van rebuild very entertaining and somewhat informative is a great talent. Keep it up and please never lose your sense of humor. Love it 🥰

    wow what an epic undertaking i take my hat off to you spent many years working on sprinters including body swops on chassis cabs the whole project blows me away i would not dream of taking on a job like that i hope when the day comes to turn the key to start the engine with just a little fettleing it all works with the effort you have put into the project its the least you deserve good luck am looking forward to the video of you amber and lance heading off into the sunset

    Your vids do cheer me up! 😊👍🏻 Despite such careful precautions I now have finally got the dreaded lurgy! So im locked in a room for a week. I used to strip and rebuild aircraft but compared to your complete loom change THAT is like being chased down a road by zombies driving M1 battle tanks and all you have is A TORCH! 😩😧 GOOD LUCK CJ and Lance🐶🎾🎾🎾

    Wow, I thought when I got all the wiring from my wee old Bongo that I had a big pile of wires, probably Lance sized but that wasn't a swap, that was just pulling... Well, whatever the wires went to which turned out to be not a lot.
    Again, fair effort on this I think I'd have crawled into the diesel tank to die by your stage.

    Be aware with the 'tacho' from the other Sprinter, its likely speed limited and there are a ton of legal issues for a tacho come your MOT time. In experience do whatever you can to eliminate the tacho unit going back in.

    Never commented on your videos before, in spite of watching most of them. However, feel compelled to comment on this video and project - just wanted to say from the perspective of a fellow amateur in everything mechanical, I am dead impressed and totally blown away by your courage in tackling this and what you have achieved already. As Al-G would have said; RESTECP.
