Re wiring a 68 RS

I have a 68 RS, looking to restore and 1 item is to replace the wiring harness. Everything works but due to the age and some splicing I thought it would be beneficial at this time. The original harness for front to back seems to be very expensive. I have done my 63 and 64 Corvette for the cost of the Camaro. I have noticed that there are some aftermarket harnesses for a lower cost. Any experiences or recommendations will be appreciated. Would like to go original but not opposed to aftermarket. What harnesses are the best?

Re: Re wiring a 68 RS

If you go aftermarket, you'll usually get the new blade-style fuses, so it'll be obvious it's not original. If that's not an issue for you, American Auto Wire makes a great kit that's around $550. I believe the harness for the RS headlights adds about another $100 or so to that number.

Re: Re wiring a 68 RS

A '68 has vacuum accuated headlight doors, what other wiring differences are there to warrant $100 more for RS?
