Hi all I've opened a whole bag of worms, of course with no tank or seat on the wiring loom would be visible, advice please does this look convincing ( obviously there would be loads more wires really but I don't have any thinner wire to hand and I don't want the loom to get too thick)
I realise I need to add the copper connectors to the end of the wires, and I realise the wires should be wrapped in black insulating tape, also the loom would not be tied with string, this I purely to check if its worth using this method.
also the carb inlets are blanked off (as normally they would be hidden in the airbox )also since the cables are not connected I've had to make the inner cables and nipples.

If you want finer wires then buy a cheapo 1 pound set of earbud type headphones and strip the inner wires out.

Most engines lying around in a workshop have some cloth shoved in the intakes or even some tape put over so you could try and simulate that for a realistic effect.

Looks great from here. That engine is worth displaying on it's own. Very sweet.

Very cool dio with lots of nice details. I Like the ones where it takes some time to take in all the small details. You have that going here! Fantastic.

Hi all here is an update on this one, thanks to a friend  he sent me some networking wires which are half the thickness of telephone wires, I am now happy with the wiring loom, I dipped the ends in clear bathroom sealant for the plastic insulation over the ends of the copper connectors also I used flattened soldering wire for the cable ties to the frame.
