Work towards your dreams. Work hard. When things aren't going your way, work harder. Success isn't easy. I'm finally back working on my Urban rally car "Rough Life Wilson".

The top photo is Wilson's interior almost fully put back together.

The second photo is the accessory gauge that tells me A LOT (once sensors are installed. You can research more here if you like. They are designed for motorcycles but uses a 12 v source) https://kosonorthamerica.com/tag/meters-gear-indicators/ .

I decided to mount it centrally so that my co-driver can operate the lap timers and monitor angle of body roll, etc.

The last photo is an example of internet inspiration that keeps me going when I feel deflated. Once Wilson is up and running, I will be running with the big dogs!  Well... okay... BEHIND the big dogs!

I don't want to let the cat out of the bag, but lets just say we're in the middle of negotiating for funding to enter the car in Le Mans. Also having a conversation with... oh I shouldn't say his name...   a certain driver https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=5&v=PqldP8hJkd4h so we can represent this car properly in Europe.

Had to fill the sunroof air inlet for gravel roads, and engine conversion hasn't been completed.

Noah it seems some interest in the flex-seal tape or aerosol spray can after putting in your plug roof hole, but if logic serves probability exist you will TIG weld the seam? Or are you installing your kill switch up there?It appears to be an excellent place for fire protection cylinder activation.
Amazing the return line vapor. So you decided to not exit that vapor to atmosphere? Is that in your catagory of racing official rules? Or just good production back to cooler then intake recirc? More or less pressure related.

Can anyone guess what I'm trying to achieve with the booster cables?

Excise the wild --- guess a (WAG) but as you have one electrode attached to the frame and pipe for both with no battery in the battery box AMD if all your electronics presently isolated from the frame so that you do not backfeed potential energy to your system it appears you ate using the car frame as a welding table.

Although it would be a mistake as personal protection in a vehicle repair facility.

Anchor,
I read about adding a "ground strap" when painting to help prevent the vehicle from static clinging dust particles from the air (which has been a major problem on all vehicles I've painted in this garage).

Build a paint booth to national standards.

Off subject grid arrays for static cling prevention are probably detailed in Europe and I have found standards based on electrical area classification standards there. That discussion centered around powder coatings in class II facility and inadequate ventilation. Like maybe metallic flake paint.

The mistake would be a rule without exception is published in NFPA 70 article 511.12 Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter Protection for Personnel.

The ground bonding ( red lead of jumper cables) referred to in your reply or response to your posted image picture "..guess..." does not coincide with the methods allowed in NFPA 70
511.16(B)(1) Grounding and Bonding Requirements.

In other words you can ground bond the car frame but you must connect the ground with approved clamps or bolted connection directly to the building steel or a ground rod, since the automobile is on rubber tires, or elevated in garage using space on jack stands, the OEM (Porsche) ground bonding methods used are bolted connections directly to the frame not removable clamps as in the jumper cables.

Please consider same identical methods as the OEM does for your electrical bonding methods during repair or get a copy of the NFPA 70 and determine your liability reference wise to required repair facilities. Your decision could require a little or a lot including lightning protection for your isolated garage from fuel storage and/or location of working conditions.
