I need new wiring for hot rod "T"

I recently bought a hot rod "T" that has been sitting in a garage. I want to loose my shorts and install a new wiring harness. I've considered Ron Francis and Highway 15 harnesses but recently came across "Hotwire - one-wire wiring harness" that claims to be faster and easier. I have requested prices and more information but have not received anything yet. Their small internet site is at: www.18004serena.com.
I like the Highway 15 harness that can be installed in sections because of their section connectors. It seems a lot less intimidating.
Anyone have experience with these 3 products? Any suggestions?
Thanks to all.

Harness

Doc here,

I went to that site and viewed ALL the pictures....

I saw NONE that involved a harness product at all...Which would make me suspicious..

If I were Selling a product called "ONE WIRE" harness I would have TONS of pictures about a project in progress from start to finish, The harness being the star..showing the benefits and ease of use of the product, Actuall wire count, loom & Switch & Accessories photos, Options available, and some technie Data about what's available...

NOT some old F**T cruzin' around in a tub rod... with not a stitch of wire showing...I mean do they really think we believe the power goes from the brake light switch to the tail lamps through osmosis??

I could Care LESS what Dude's Rod looks like...Is it "Flame-less Electric operated" ?? Will it work on my application..What exactly the Hell Does it look like?? Do I need an Advanced Areo Degree to install it...How much do I need mortgage My house for to obtain one...

Unless The Info pack provides more information (at least the above questions) I'd take a big pass on it...you may end up with something made by high school students for extra credit in Auto shop (and yes..that does happen!)that is so inferior..could cause a fire powering a flashlight..

Stick with a well known maker , unless your very adventurous..

Doc

One wire's reply

Hello Frank,
Unfortunately the Hotwire system is not commercially available at this
time. We are investigating the possibility of re-vitalizing it, but
this will not happen in the near future. Thanks for contacting us and
good luck with your rewiring project.
It is well tested. For example, Iíve had one on my T for years with no problem. The problem is that I need to decide if I want to be in this business again or not.
Regards,
Bill Dallenbach

I've used the Painless harness, it works.
Don't try to take a short cut and save some of whats
there, it gets messy
