Progress is being made

(Which gear would this count as?)

It's getting there. The arduous task of re-wiring the Fića can't be completed in a few days, or even a few weeks. When a car's wires are thrown about in all the wrong directions, one's brain has to work overtime to sort out all the permutations.

In this case, it's taking three different wiring diagrams (two "sixes" and an "eight") to find where the wires were (incorrectly) connected to begin with, and then extensive testing on top of that to confirm that everything is where it seems to be.

Only then comes the part where you actually connect the wires properly.

At this point, the following things now work as intended:
  • The ignition switch
  • The headlamps (low beam)
  • The turn signals
  • The windshield wipers
  • The taillamps (running lights)
  • The starter

On the other side of the coin, the high/low beam stalk on the steering column is faulty. We are yet to see if it can be repaired, or if a new one has to be found/bought.

That's the latest.

  1. Holy smokes, the diagrams on your "The drawing board, again" post are just nuts. It's unbelievable that the wiring was so buggered.
