    Now it's easy to read! All you need is FSM, big printer, 3 mm MDF, clear plastic film ,veneer press.
    When you get older, (..and I already have glasses) this is what helps...:p
    BTW, do I understand correctly, the number on wire code (like: A1C-10R) , number 10 is wire size in AWG table? Car is -69 Imperial. 20190814_183237.jpg

    Yes 10R is 10 gauge AWS and the R is red -not the color table lower right.

    :wideyed:

    That's industrial art right there!

    I believe the code "A1A, A1B, A1C, etc" is the circuit ID.

    For example in buildings you see similar labels such as PNL-2A CKT-5

    Correction: note the color table lower right.

    I think that was an excellent idea! Those FSM wiring diagrams were tough back when I was just a kid and my eyesight was fine. I colored mine in when I was only 15 years old because they were so hard to follow. I don't understand why they couldn't print them in color. They printed the transmission pressure diagrams in color. Just add a buck or two to the price of the manual if you have to. GM started printing color wiring diagram manuals in the late 70's or early 80's, but I don't think that Chrysler or Ford ever did.

    There is a real benefit to coloring in the diagrams yourself, as you will learn how the car is wired and get a general feel for the colors that Chrysler uses for the more common circuits.

    Happy coloring!

    Here's my handywork from way back in the 80's:

    I could read that from across the garage, well maybe not that far.

    I would love to see those available as the FSM is a little too small and I don't care for the aftermarket prints that over simplify the circuits.

    A good guide to wiring diagrams: http://www.mymopar.com/downloads/AutoWiringBeginersGuide.pdf

    Seems like we like coloring, doesn't matter how old we are!
    I think I will do it wire by wire when need to, just too many lines to colour...

    That's one of the reasons I love the PDF versions of the FSM. I'll print out a page or two of electrical schematics and get the highlighter out.

    I was looking at the Staples (large office supply store here in the states) website and they can do large printing. I can even upload over the intrawebs. This might be the way to go... I might try it.

    Speaking of highlighters, I used to order black highlighters when I worked at GE. The person in our office that procured office supplies didn't get the joke and she would diligently try to get them for me... She never caught on.
