Is it stock? If it is, I would recommend a reproduction harness. They cost more, but you can install them in 1/10th the time, and there is no guesswork as to how to hook up the wires to your factory switches and components.

For stock harnesses on a car like yours, I have had good luck with Rhode Island Wiring.

Hope this helps....

I've got one to add to this bit. I too, have a wiring harness I bought .. Painless..looks pretty much like it too since it's still in the box... Give me a few months to get rid of the broken leg cast and get back out in the garage.. (lots to do such as put the body back down onto the frame..etcetc.Lots to do..

So anyhow, the kit has a lot of regular type of connectors. What would be a reccomendation for upgrading the connectors making them better and looking custom. You guys have been through many of these things and the little shrink tubing, better wire looms, rails, whatever ideas you have to make the wiring look like it belongs (where you see it ) and where you can't see it .. Hidden from plain sight ..
Did I make sense about this?
Not trying to hijack, just seems it's as important as the type of wire loom system as the execution..
We've all seen some really nice rides out there that when you open the hood it looks like we see inside a deranged crazy fodder.. Wait a second, that's me!

Thanks in advance.
