Making your own rewire kit

Hi. I was looking into the cost of rewiring the car while it is apart. So my thought was to just use an American AW or Painless kit. Then I saw the price and I started to think it may not be such a good idea. Then I thought maybe if I got my hands on a late model GM harness and worked it it could save 3 -4 hundred bucks. My car is a 67 with aftermarket gauges, No radio MSD pretty basic.
has anyone here done anything like this? If so at the end of the day how much did it cost?

Re: Making your own rewire kit

I've restored my orignal harnesses. This involved making a diagram of where each branch came off, unwrapping them, cleaning all the wires and connectors, replacing any bad terminals, repairing any bad or hacked up wiring, adding wires for the aftermarket gauges and stereo power amp and speakers, and rewrapping the harnesses with factory style no stick tape.

All new connections are proper wrap splices, all soldered and shrink wrapped.

It all worked out very well, looks and performs factory new.
