Al here with AutoReWire.com in beautiful downtown Galt, CA

It can take from 5 or 6 hours for me to wire a T-bucket or bare bones roadster to as much as two weeks to wire a luxo-barge show car with power everything.

It all depends on your experiance, how well you lay out the project and YES who's kit you use.

The kits that have the wires pre terminated at the fuse panel can take a little less time to install than the modular kits. Painless, HayWire, American Autowire and others are made this way. Centech Wiring also hase 6, 10 and 12 circuit kit made this way. My biggest problem with these kits is its a lot like wrestling a plate of spagetti until you get the wire laid out where it will go.


Ron Francis's Advantage Plus kit takes about the most time to install, especially if you do a really nice job of routing the wires. BUT, if you have never wired a car before I would highly recommend this kit. All you have to do is mount the fuse panel, and start wiring with wire package number one and so on. You do have to crimp a terminal on both ends of each wire. Another plus with this panel is that it is very easy to trouble shoot problems becuase you can test everything right at the panel.

Centech Wiring makes a very nice modular system that is my favorite to install. Small and nice looking panel and most of the wires come with the end connectors installed so all you have to do is attach that end to it's accessory, route the wire where you want it, cut it to length at the fuse panel, strip the end and instert it into the block on the panel and tighten it up.

Good Luck and e-mail me if you need any additional help or parts.
