Weimer paid something short of $200 for a 22 circuit wiring harness. It also has a built in kill switch to disable everything. Looks to be top notch. Not sure of the name of it but if you contact him or if he sees this he can fill you in.

Just got my EZ-Wiring kit yesterday. Very easy to follow instructions and all wires are labeled.
Well worth the $$$.

Got one too

I got one for my '46 Chevy Panel too, like it allot, but have not got it installed all the way yet, got fuse block and rear section run, getting other things done first. Thats what I'd go with if I had to do it again.

I have installed a couple of EZ wire kits and a Ron Francis kit and I like the EZ Wire better not only because it was much cheaper (about half) but it has more circuits and very good instructions.

How about a copy????

Hea fella`s, anyone have a copy of their painless wiring instructions they would share? I have a new painless fuse block and think i can rewire it with instructions. Why pay for it if i can get one of you to share with me. I hope you are all doing good on your projects. Please send to klberry212@yahoo.com if you can share. Thanks in advance! Have a ton of fun today!

Painless has their manuals on their web site for download.

I just got a 22 circuit micro fuse wiring harness from It's a Snap Wiring http://www.itsasnapwireandcable.com/new_page_6.htm It is the best $135 I have spent to date on my 34 project.

I researched all the kits, Painless is good, but overpriced. Ron Francis is too proprietary for me. EZ is the most comparable to It's a Snap harness. I was intent on wanting the small footprint of the micro fuse panel, and when I ran across the 22 circuit one from It's A Snap, I "snapped" it up....that was corny.

painless it isn't

The painless wiring instructions I received have instructions for 5 kits in one. You have to be confused buy a lot of info that dosn't pertain to your kit to figure out what you need and its a REAL PAIN!! I have e-mailed painless and asked for a wiring diagram specific to the kit I bought but haven't heard from them yet?? I would NOT suggest buying or using one of these kits again!!

EZ-Wiring is the way to go. They're MUCH less money than painless!

I've never done anything like that before, and when I wired my truck with the EZ-Wire kit, I had FUN!!
