If you are fair at crimping and don't mind the work...... NAPA sells the type 56 terminals that are used in the fusebox connector. Lowes sells a very good crimping tool, it's not the proper one, but with a little practice it crimps the 56 terminals very well.

After a complete re-wire on my Camaro, I became very apt at crimping the 56's when adding pass-thru wires for all the system upgrades..... ie... elec fans, horn relay, wipers etc....

or better yet ...

Every mechanic and/or hotrodder should have a set, IMHO.
