Go to a you pull it yard and get one from an ol truck.Trucks usually don't have all the BS circuits like cars do,just basics for a hotrod.

I did the EZ-Wire Kit and I sure am glad I did ... only $165, too!

I used the wiring harness out of an '85 Chevy truck for my '49 Chevy truck and it surprised me how easy everything went together. I have a Nova tilt wheel and all of the plugs are compatible. If you know how to use a trouble light and a meter this way is alot cheaper. If you are new at wiring I'd have to agree with "horvath" and "akm" and go with EZ Wiring. Horvath has all the pics of the installation and it looks like a slam dunk to me.

That's a good point, Hiimed. I couldn't have done a junk yard kit before ... the EZ-Wire Kit was a slam dunk! And, now that I understand what it's all about, I COULD do a junk yard kit, easily ... but I'd still rather do the EZ-Wire Kit -- what the hay, man -- nice clean wires, all labeled and ready to go, clean and neat, brandy spankin' new, and only $165!
