That rat's nest of wiring, you see the actor looking at. Was likely added by the movie's prop dept. As something the actor could mess around with, and rip out. The original wiring, is all the neatly tied up, yellow colored bundles. It was white, back in the 1960s. But yellowed with age, and heat. The colorful neon effects, showing an "E" and "54", and such. Was also added by the props dept. Or the Q-7 prop supply house.
