    Ways of keeping track of wiring and changes?

    Traditionally i have worked from a bunch of paper when doing wiring, and just modified stock wiring diagrams for ECU wiring when needed. For the race car i ended up laminating a modified Haltech diagram for the ECU, and most of the body loom was done using printed wire from a hotrod wiring kit.

    But I was watching Project Binky recently, and saw their relatively complex wiring tracker as they were doing the wiring:


    This got me thinking about doing a similar spreadsheet for the MX5 (as simple as it is).

    Then after seeing Brason Jordhursts' OCD wiring bench I started thinking about other ways of doing similar things.

    So how do others keep track of wiring and changes to 'stock' wiring?

      That sheet of ply and a sharpy has done some work I can tell you.

      Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

        I use excel, onenote and onedrive. Excel file has ECU pinout and breakout plugs etc, onenote has things like sensor information, calibration tables, sender pinouts etc, onedrive is used to store all of this plus the associated tune and log files per-car along with photo galleries of the build

          Excel and Visio

          Excel has the pin out's, Visio has the diagram.

          Reading what Jasonnp1977 wrote i might add sensor information to the excel.

            Do you need version control?

                Pm me your email address and I'll send you a spreadsheet done by my wiring boffin, makes it simpler to figure out and visualise.
