    I just followed along with the factory service manual and refurbished my stock wiring. It's real easy as all is color coded.

      I guess I can do it just gotta start on it one wire at a time and not look at all the other wires.

          If your dash is still out Fred, I would be tempted to do it on bench. One wire at a time and add a new style of bulkhead/fusebox, seeing as how the old bh was deleted?
          A MH repop underdash harness for our 67 cuda is like $700-800. I have a spare 67 harness that I may replace one wire at a time??

            I would think time consuming but almost foolproof doing one at a time.
            Not sure what's available for new styles of bh?

              I deleted my original bulkhead connector. Thought it was ugly and I wanted a cleaner look. Planning on using an aircraft style connector, like this one.

                Nice idea are you able to get the bigger wires connected in that? and how do I find it.

                I just gutted my connector and ran wires straight thru homemade grommet. If I ever need to remove engine I will disconnect there

                  This one is just an example that’s for 22ga wire. I need to locate one to run the heavier wires for the car. For me, I’m able to grab one from work. The brand is Souriau.

                        After the parts ordered are installed I will put the fenders on and attack the wiring.
                        If ya ever get a chance to come visit do so when I start to do the wiring so you all can help. lol

                                    American auto wire from Classic I think. Looks like a complete kit but not cheap about 1,000. Any better ideas would be great, I don't mind spending the money on a good kit.

                                      Not sure how I will run the exhaust but with the bigger fuel tank will have to dump out front of the back tires.
