Here is our local expert! He has posted a great step by step photo shoot at his website showing how he did his '54 Chevy pickup.

If it is your first time, get an EZ or Painless kit. They are some of the cheapest you can get, quality is second to none, and they are partially completed from the factory (all wires already terminated in fuse block). Very easy to do if you are the slightest bit mechanically inclined.

THANKS, willys36!

Hey, Murray

I bought this EZ-Wire kit on the web -- <a href="http://www.ezwiring.com/18_fuse__21_circuit_harness.htm" target="_blank">Click Here</a>

It's a great kit, and like willys36 says, all the wires are all set up in the fuse box ... plus they are color coded and labeled every 5-6 inches -- really making the whole project rather brainless.

You can see my daily efforts via the link above (or here, below my sig) ... this was the first time I ever did this, so I really took my time and enjoyed the process.

When you're done it REALLY feels good knowing all is new and in order, too!

PS - If you have ANY questions as you do your Chevy, I'll be happy to answer them and help you along in any way I can.

Man I agree with Horvath!! Have used 3 EZwiring kits and for the price and the connections it's the only way to go. EZ and has the wiring diagram for future use.

I have installed two EZ wire kits and a Ron Francis. I would use the EZ wire kit over the Wire works kits anyday, they are easy to install and much cheaper. Try Rodparts Warehouse in Iowa they have them on sale right now (1-800-373-5773). It is the same kit with different instructions. in 160 to 170 range as far as price.
