I am glad you like my mods.
I am really ready to give up , because all my family and all of my friends absolutely don't give a [expletive] about my Fiats.
All they do is just making fun of me and just keep rolling theirs eyes up when I show them my progress .
Nobody around me really appreciates what I am doing.

Only question I have is the regulator between the IDFs. I've never seen it mounted there. Doesn't it interfere with setting the balance lever etc?
It's not in between - it is in front of both of them .
So no - no probs.

As you can see where is no visible wires , all of them are hidden under the fenders

All relays were moved to one location and I'll build some kind of cover for them later

Family always thinks we are nuts working on old Fiats, especially tin tops...you might get more appreciation with convertibles.
The wife just sees you wasting money you could spend on her.
Neighbors find you an amusing member of the community who is a good source of lending metric tools and filling their kids bike tires with air with your compressor.
Your friends...may not be your friends!

I wouldn't worry about what others think of our hobby.
