Having passed through the paint shop the body shell is now treated to the first of two major sessions in the hands of the electricians. Threading the main wiring loom, the fixing of lights, indicators, passenger compartment roof light along with other items are all so much easier when access is unencumbered.

To those of us who are interested in cars, these items are important, but would not be perhaps the things we would prioritise if asked to assemble a vehicle. Somehow it seems strange that such vulnerable parts are added to the body so early in the process.

However, Armstrong Siddeley surely knew what they were doing and some bright minds had planned the production route. As observers we must just take note and absorb.
