where to buy wire in many colors?

I need to buy about 12' each of 7 diffrent color wires in 18ga.. with all of the local suppliers selling black and red and sometimes green, where can I get 4 other colors in a small amount?... I'm putting in an overhead console in my Ford Ranger so I'm dealing with some computerized circuits so I can't get them wrong

McMaster Carr is where I buy quality wire. The wire you get at the auto parts stores is from China and the insulation is the absolute pits. I'm not sure what it is, but it melts when you solder a connection. You can also buy quality wire from the many wiring harness manufacturers, just make sure it is GXL insulated.
