I was doing a bit of research online, and came across a restoration thread of a Gutbrod 1030, on
a French GT forum.

This guy did a real nice job here in my opinion.

Yes, it's all OE. Same stuff that's supposed to be in the Elf.

Bottom right-blinker relay
Bottom left-regulator/solenoid
Top right-ignition/hi beam/low beam key switch
Below that-kill button
Top left-horn button
Below that-blinker selector
Black box-fuses
Left of that-I think an indicator light, for charge circuit, which should be
to right of ignition switch. Choke should be there.

Where does one find spiral wrap like?

On my computer, when you bring up the page, you can right click to get the Bing translator. It doesnt always do every word, and sometimes it uses the right word wrong meaning, but it clsoe enough you can read whats going on. I use it all the time when im looking for stuff on European GT tractors.

Will you should be able to find spiral wrap like that at an Electrical Supply Company. Or maybe a Racing, Hotrod Supplier or even an Auto Parts Store.
Back in the late 50's & Early 60's, I could get spiral wrap and used it on my 51 Desoto Club Coupe(Was nieve enough to think it would make my Flathead 6 run better? Along with the High Compression Baby Moon hubcaps) at Western Auto & Coast to Coast Hardware stores(both Chains now ancient history). It did make a Rats nest of wires more manageable and look better!

Thanks Will, I checked out some of the rest of the site. Very neat. I didn't need the translator all the time.

It sure looks like a good wiring job.

Yes and no it is used in space shuttles/ planes/ automobiles and in Telecom and in every where else be-twine but now EVERY thing is done with Zip ties (way faster) but you cant rush perfection
