I have finally diagnosed an internal failure in my relay/fuse box circuit boards and am looking to see if anyone has had any experience in fixing or replacing a portion of this unit rather than buy an new one? The application is for a 86 Testarossa. I'm researching trying to replace the flex circuit boards but it is a bit over my head. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

smithbb,

Welcome to Ferrari Forum, glad to have you here. There is a Testarossa owner here (carguy) that can pretty much fix anything on a TR. Here is his profile:

On that page click the "PM" button next to "Private Message:" and ask your question there.

I do know of some tuners (MR2 Turbo) that do a lot of circuit board work. It's mainly ECU work but... a circuit board is a circut board. Here is the link to their site:

Once again I'm not sure if they could help you but it sure would be worth a phone call. They get very busy so more than one call might be in order.

Thanks to both of you for the input! I'm familiar with some of carguy's previous work so thats a good tip Enzo. Senna, I'm not familiar with your suggestion so I'll dig into that as well. I think this problem is not totally uncommon but I'm resisting as much as possible the idea of a replacement (ouch!). They say creativity can be the mother of invention so I'm sorting my options. Frankly, the boards are not that complicted since there is not componentry, its really just a complex bus, but the business of PCB's is a whole new world for me including the terminology. It seems many companies will do prototypes and one ups but you have to be able to produce gerbers using specialized free download CAD software. (which frankly, I hate!!!!) Anyway, I'm pursuing options and will try and post updates, heck, maybe even a solution.

Board prototyping will still cost a few hundred dollars...
I had a prototype board made for some electronics control units built and it was around 600 dollars (australian)
