Best Rewire Kit

I'm gonna rewire my Nova in about a week just wanted some opinions on which kit you guys think is the best. Right now it's leaning to a painless kit.

Be sure you compare apples to apples when looking at re-wiring kits. Not all kits use the best GXL wire. You should seriously look at the instructions you get with the kit. Not all kits have the proper plugs and receptacles included.

Here is some good info on wire types.

In other words, price should not be your only consideration.

Money is not an issue at all on this kit, I want wiring that will last a while and have continous power. The one above looks promising I also hear Delphi is a top name for wiring as well.

I have used american autowire kits and I really like them. They come with a color coded wiring diagram, new switches, labeled wires, and factory connectors. Plus, the diagrams have options for aftermarket dash panels like covans or dakota digital.

I'm shocked on how cheap the rebel kits are. Seems like a steal.

Thanks for the props guys....Just want to set the record straight. GXL wire is an intermediate grade. All Rebel Wire harnesses are built with SXL wire which is second only to battery cabel. We use SXL for its durability and flame resistance.

I am using a Painless 18 circuit kit in my '38 Dodge and I am in the process of wiring it now. I have had no issues and I am impressed with the kit.

However, I bought this kit a few years ago (like 5 yrs. ago), before I joined up here or on the HAMB, and those Rebel kits sure get a lot of great compliments and references. If I were to do it again today I would certainly contact Glenn at Rebel about my wiring needs.

Are Rebel Wiring kits made in the USA?
