Re: how mutch will it cost ?

I think this is going to require more of exactly what needs to be wired and is it street or strip.Is it the stock harness do you need to buy one is it toggles or a stock type harness.This is going to be a hard one to get answered.

Re: how mutch will it cost ?

This is going to be a tuffy!.....I spent a good day and a half completely rewiring my 68 coupe with a 18 circuit Painless Wiring kit!.....You're going to be using the more expensive wiring harness so figure on probably adding another 1K, maybe less!.....It would be best and cheaper to purchase the wiring kit and do it yourself!

Re: how mutch will it cost ?

What is the condition of the existing wiring harnesses? Or is all of the wiring out of the car and you are starting from scratch? Some questions that come to mind for me are do you have gauges and AC.

I noticed that you have fans and assume that these are electric so you will need a few relays. If you are going to start wiring relays under the hood for fans your may want to take a look at using them for your headlights too. If you have not checked out www.madelectrical.com they have a great tutorial.

Re: how mutch will it cost ?

Tim, which AAW harness? The OE style Factory Fit, or the Classic Update? If you've already bought the harnesses and they are Factory Fit, you may want to return them and get the Classic Update; the Update would have the extra circuits you want, so nothing would have to be "added."

I posted some estimates of the time it took to install my classic update in this thread:

https://www.camaros.net/forums/showth...t=update+hours

You can add up the hours (approximately 17 hours on my disassembled car) and then multiply by an hourly labor rate that is appropriate for your area to come up with a ballpark cost (probably at least $1K). I discussed some of the other variables for the install time in this thread:

https://www.camaros.net/forums/showth...t=update+hours

If you do go the Update route, it's really not that difficult. The kit has good instructions, and AAW has very strong tech support that is just a phone call away. Many questions you might have can also be answered here; there a many of us on here that have used the Update here and can give tips, and Donny from AAW often monitors the forums here and can answer here as well.

The OE style Factory Fit installation is even easier, except that there will be some time to figure out how to make the modifications you want.
