Generic 12 volt wiring harness?

Not too many years back you could buy a "generic" 12 volt wiring harness for ground up hot rod builds, or for older cars that you wanted to convert to 12 volts positive from 6 volts negative. Today it seems that harnesses are built as original replacements that are very car specific, and I can't find a generic harness anwhere on the web. Does anyone know of a company or website that still offers these?

I took a chance with an ebay special. Not sure what brand it is. But the wire is the right size and it is all labeled appropriately. I wired a couple of race cars from scratch. Not as many circuits, mind you. But I could have probably wired my hot rod from scratch. So using the less expensive kit didn't bother me.

If memory serves, there have been several threads on wiring harnesses on HBB. Do a search. What you will find is a lot of "my wire harness is better than your wire harness." But there are a lot of posts where the person posting put together and articulate group of reasons why they chose a particular harness.

Doc here,

There is a Thread Stuck to the top of this forum, That asks Your very same question, Titled" "Wiring Harness" .

It is several pages long and asks What ones they used , how hard/easy was it to install, Etc..

Ron Francis and the Owner of EZ2 wire are both on there answering TECH questions. I suggest you try a post in that thread.

Doc
