Hi Chris,
I had the same problem, I used some examples of wiring schemes and made some myself.
Would you like me to post them here for you, or do you have a good example?
Just curious, you say that you are aware that the original wires were black cotton, those wires are available from different sellers, very good quality, modern standard, why do you then choose to make them in plastic? Or is this just a test cable and will you make the black version later?

Hello Mike,

Thank you but for instance I manage the wiring. Because I make some some improvements and / or modifications, some "upgrades" if you want.

For the wires, I have all in "old cotton" design (but coloured) except for two or three in actual slim plastic (there was a lot of waiting at the supplier for some colors). They will be invisible anyway.

And I think I found a solution for the rear filament with turn lights and brakes
5I have to do some tests now...

Chris, in love with Alfa from...'68, but it wasn't always reciprocal !

I missed the fact that you were looking for a solution for the rear lights, both brake and turn signal.
Best aftermarket solution is from https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product/167
Works great

Hello Chris,

A take the assumption that you are able to provide a stop signal and an alternative turn signal.
I spend a lot of time to imagine the diagram (I'm not an electrician) but I suppose this will work :

Relay are "Changover contact". May be a resistor on the turn signal will be needed ?

I send you details by mail.

Didn't see this reply.

Much more easier than my solution with 6 (2x3) relais

Hi Serge,

Thanks for your info.

I imagined a system with 3 relay with 5 pins. I think it's work. I will try yours as well.

But, maybe the solution indicated by Mike is the simple one...

Hi guys,
Buying the lucas is the best, easiest way.
If you do want to do make this yourself, let me know, I can sent you the drawing to make it yourself, probably cost you 15 euro for the 3 relais you need.
Mike

Hello Mike,

I don't want to make this by myself but I would be curious to see you drawing in order to compare to what I imagine.

Hi you would need the normal turn signal relay and 2 DPDT relays, those are available from any electronics shop at a few euros.
DPDT is ‘Double Pole Double Throw’, quite easy and cheap.
Good luck Mike

body, what kind of wire ?

The alu body of the 1900 is finished by a wire running all the way through the car.

Do you know what kind of wire must be used ? The wire must made to last long with aluminium I suppose ?

Chris what about using stainless steel, I assume there to be less galvanic reaction and therefore less potential for rust? I guess it would be harder to bend to profile but if it was pre-rolled to shape not so hard.

Yes Tim, it's a nice idea. I think I will use that.

I will protect by an application (maybe epoxy) to limit direct friction with aluminum.

It appears bare aluminum grounding wire is available in a number overall outside diameters (for example, see this seller in China). I found it by entering "bare aluminum" in the search box of this site. Note that some sellers have 1m minimum orders, while others have 1km minimum order.
