I haven't been able find anywhere a reproduction fuse block. We all know the trouble the old ones can give but you would think someone would be making them?
Please guide me :grin2:

I was thinking more of just the fuse box itself to replace for those who aren't ready to tear the car apart to replace the whole harness.
Is there a modern version fuse box that will fit right into a 68 Lemans?

light corrosion

Thanks for the link! I'd like to find one that isn't rusty, but I'll bet there aren't any.
I'd be 99% confident that will clean up and be nice.

Ideas:
Soaking it overnight in 50/50 water and white vinegar then toothbrushing.
Other is CokaCola / toothbrush.
OR Dremel with wire wheel.

thin coat with dielectric grease.

There’s a hell of a lot of wires that go into those fuse boxes, would be a lot quicker to get a dash harness

I rebuilt my fusebox for about $30 in parts and about 8-10 hours of time. Take lots of pictures upon disassembly.
Tricky part is unlocking the terminals from the box but once you figure it out it goes easily.

Thanks 052,

You did exactly what I would have done including soldering on the back. Nice work!:wink3:
