No shortage of shorts

Fixing a short circuit on the MGB. One of the main brown wires between the fusebox and starter had fizzled away completely.

It was impossible to find the correct gauge of brown wire in the local shops, so I had to dismantle an old Mini-loom to find one.
 The fusebox looked sorry for itself, but turned out to be salvageable.
 The remains of the burnt out wire
 New wire and new connector
Everything connected. Just in time for a test run at dusk. Everything works fine.
