    Hey everyone,

    So the car i am working on at the moment has a painless wiring harness in it. Sadly the previous owners did a horrible job and ruined the harness. I have no idea what they did and I am just going to pull it out. They for some reason spliced onto the harness and did a bunch of stuff, it is a nightmare.

    Now the question is that I am getting rid of the radio and a couple other components in the car. What would you suggest for a wiring harness? I plan to upgrade ignition and add electrical fan and water pump.

      I like the EZ kit because it only has 12 circuits. Most of the stuff I do, the cars are quite basic. I think my 63 that I am about to do has only 6 from the factory. Like you, most of the older cars have been butchered over the years.

        Yeah i crimped the connectors onto the end of the wire before i inserted the wire into the weatherpak connector. Maybe you shouldn't be such a tool and have a beer and calm down.

        Look at the Ron Francis kits, too. They have several kits with a range of circuits. I use their kits for race cars and have found their tech support good. I like American Autowire for street cars.
