Default 1980 Full Color Wiring Diagram

The original wiring diagram is sometimes difficult to read.
After a few dozen hours of work, I made a full color wiring diagram myself.
This is for the 1680 Corvette.
(Click on the Ctrl button and scroll with the mouse wheel to enlarge / reduce).
I hope you enjoy it.
With thanks to Mitchell 2001.

Default 1981 FSM or equiv???

I've been helping a friend restore his father's 81. We've got the interior restored (looks great), but the engine bay is a disaster - the car was handed over to some 'fly-by-night' shop where the original 350 was removed, along with the Computer Aided Carb. The engine bay is rife with open (cut) vacuum hoses, and disconnected electrical stuff and what-not.

I'm a pretty fair hand at fixing and restoration projects, but don't care to venture forward w/o wiring and vacuum schematics. Can anyone point me to a source they have found to be comprehensive (and ACCURATE!)?

TIA

Paul.

I have Dr. Rebuild color diagrams for my 1970, they are very useful and easy to follow.

He doesn't offer one for an 80-82.

Wish he did.

Well ZZIP, what a coincidence. I started the same project a few weeks ago myself after trying to trace some electrical problems with the monochrome wiring diagram. Not having access to Illustrator or CAD/Schematic software I ended up using Photoshop to stitch together and colour overlay the Mitchell wiring diagram. I made some different design choices to your diagram, but my version does not scale as well and is not as tidy as yours.

I wish I would have known you were doing this at the same time and would have saved myself some work. I figure I'll post my version here for the hell of it anyway.

Hi, it is always possible that 2 people are working on the same diagram. That is unfortunate . Especially after you have worked on it for so long.
I created my diagram with Office VISIO. Really recommended.

I would have liked to have posted this VISIO file, but it is not possible to post a .vsdx file on the forum.
Send me a PM and I will send it to you.

Because there was so much demand for wiring diagrams from other years (Fora, Facebook ...) , I spent half an hour looking at the wiring diagram of the 1978 Corvette.
Sorry, but it is already different than the 1980 wiring diagram.
If it was easier than I would have started again.
Grtz Peter

@ Bikespace, I have sent you the visio file .
