Total electric advise

I have a 63 impala that has virtually no wires running from the headlights to the dah then to the tail lights its only wired from ignition to starter,what i was thinking was would it be better to try to go back and replace all of the wires somewhat original or would it be worth the time to take a monty carlo 80's model and use the fuse box and go ahead and add tilt steering and just run all my electric from the monty carlo harness?????

You could, But i would go with a aftermarket harness. That way everything is new. and won't have any splices, nicks or cuts in the wiring.

If the monte harness isn't butchard I'd use it.But befor you do anythng I would untape it and bundle each circuits wires together with tiewraps.I had to do a ton of work on my half wired hotrod this week and with it all taped and not knowing auto electric and color codes it was a disaster,which ended up in my bundleing each circuit for future referance.
Also there will be a ton of wires that you prolly won't use that you'll prolly want to bundle off to the side or just get dareing and cut off.

For $165, I would buy an EZ-Wire kit and rest assured.
