1965 Chevelle SS Wire Harness

Anyone ever install a painless wire harness in a 1965 chevelle or similar? I'm have an electrical gremlin somewhere and since the wires are so old I figure its better to start from scratch. What do you guys think??

Thanks,
Mike

I would not go that route.Get books with electrical diagrams and start checking the circuits.Usually high resistance on the fuse box causes hell.Cleaning solves a lot o problems.Time and patience will get it done.

I would replace the original wiring in a heartbeat if it was giving me problems. The Painlesss kits use the latest fuse techology and the wire is much higher quaility than what was supplied in your Chevelle originally. They are a real pleasure to install, go for it.

The wiring in my 54 Chevy pickup was a real nightmare when I got it!!! Danger City, man!

I think it's a great idea to rewire an older vehicle ... and be SURE of total safety, head to toe.

Only, I went with the EZ-Wire kit -- same as Painless, but MUCH less money:
