I think the wiring in my 65 is disgusting. I having done much with it since I bought the car.

There are a lot of extra wires in there that I know are not in use. So I am thinking just start over from scratch and clean it up.

Any suggestions? I saw a GM harness at Summit.

BTW car has new electronic extras
Ignition box, fuel pump, fan, gauges.

I have used the repro harnesses with excellent results. I have also used a Painless (in my streetrod). It was as advertised and looks good. It is harder to install because you have to cut and terminate most of the wires. Looks as if you would have a combination of the two. Probably a "custom" front half and stock back half, oh, then there's the fuel pump back there.... So a Painless or something similar may be the way to go. Just be sure to get one with enough circuits.

I put the 18 circuit Painless harness in my car and I had ZERO wiring experience. It was not "Painless" but their tech people spent all the time I needed to learn. The good: circuits for electric pump, 3rd brake light, electric seats, power windows, one wire alternator, MSD ignition, no horn relay needed, good new fuses. The bad: poor instructions, you need to change your amp meter to a volt meter (actually a good thing too), no clear instructions for wiring in the gauge cluster.

Most of the repro parts places sell M&H harness'. You can buy direct from them, here is a link; www.wiringharness.com give them a try, they will do some custom work, you will have to ask.

progress has little to do with speed, but lots to do with direction.
