I have not rewired a car but here is where I would start reading.

Get the big laminated wiring diagram on Ebay. It is very detailed and color coded

What brand did you order? Easy plug and play sets are costly. Universal sets are half the price but take more labor. I have wired dozens of cars. You just need a good wiring diagram for the original wiring and the new version. Install any accessories that you have first and run wiring for anything you may want later. Much easier to plan for it now than add it later.

My son-in-law and I did his 67 wagon. Used American Autowire kit. Went one step at a time. Everything works.

Re: Rewiring 1967 Malibu

Take some time to make a plan. Rewire takes some disassembly. Especially the interior. So get yourself a good set of wire strippers and a good set of crimpers (suggest set with changeable jaws), also get a couple rolls of harness tape (not electrical tape) and a bunch of zip ties. For interior some suggestion for jobs to do at same time would be, new headliner, sound deadener, change bulbs to LED's, clean rustproof and paint interior floor pans, new carpet.

Keith,
I assume you are referring to a plug and play harness. However even with a plug and play there could be situations that arise such as aftermarket guages, fans, pumps, maybe a security system. Don't know about anyone else but having a set of wire strippers and crimpers may come in handy for those that work on and repair classic cars and certainly would pay for themselves if a vehicle had to be taken to a shop for a simple repair or one alteration. A great set of crumpets plus a good set of strippers can be had for less than $100.00.
If a plug and play wire harness is made for every possible scenario then one is overpaying for the harness.
