Thanks, guys. I've decided to abandon the existing wire in place and install a new full-length wire outside the wrapped bundle and re-wrap it, per the suggestion of an MGE mate. You are right about damaged wire further into the bundle. If there is still a problem, then replacing the entire front loom is the ultimate solution.
My 51 TD was also originally Autumn Red and I found large areas of original paint behind undercoat on fenders. I have pictures but the color changes from one computer to another. Here is a link to the thread regarding my findings with a pic of the can and formula. It is very similar to Chris Bennett's color.
