White is to be avoided unless you have a dust shield wheel liner, they soon get black from brake dust, you could go to the black wheel centre and silver rim of early cars, grey is just....grey!

Hmm, well the wheels are fairly down the list of jobs so I'll have a think about them. I have access to sandblaster, wheel remover and tyre balancer so I would only be out the cost of paint if I decided to do it. I'm basically trying to make the car a very usable modern classic. Installing the later electric seat, putting a modern sound system in but maintaining stock looks etc

Hm, I'll just have to get the multimeter out and probe around a bit I think!

There is a group of male blade terminals on the back of the fusebox labelled H that are connected directly to the battery. The supply is not fused so it may make sense to add an extra fuse to the 9 way auxiliary fusebox and run the supply through that. Some red wires will already run from these blade terminals to fuses in the 9 way box so it may be easier to pick up one of those.
