Beneath its 12 fuse panel my Mangusta has a smaller Lucas fuse block that uses 2 glass cartridge fuses. (see arrow) It appears that a previous owner must have broken off the lower right terminal (perhaps when prying out the fuse). As a repair he then soldered in a length of wire and introduced an in-line fuse as a substitute for the cartridge fuse. (The twisted yellow wire is connected to the yellow/black stripe wire with the in-line fuse holder which is out of the photo view below.) This has always bothered me and I want to clean it up this winter. First off, does anyone else's car have a supplemental Lucas fuse holder like this? The yellow/black stripe and celest/black stripe wires don't show up on any wiring diagram I have. Any idea what these wires are? I have sourced the Lucas holder and I just want to make sure I provide the correct amount of over-current protection.
