I was researching posts about Painless wiring. I have a '68 standard camaro and the wiring is shot. I want to wire the entire car. People say I need the stock connectors. does painless has the correct light bulb connectors. Does this harness specific for the '68 have the rear light harness as well? lastly is it a pain to remove old connectors from the oem harness. I don't want to be rigging a new harness with old junk

I can tell you that the old connectors are pretty easy to remove. For most of the blade style connectors a small nail or other skinny pointed device is all it takes to release the tab holding the thing in the plasic shell. Some of the other connectors such as the console, steering column, rear wiring harness etc have a different style pin. I believe those have two pins on each side and require an even smaller tool to release. A little inginuity should get them out with little trouble. But off hand I can't think of a good tool to do it with.

If you want to keep it just like the factory did it and have it plug right in with no splicing get an M&H wiring harness for your application. I put one in my car and was impressed with how easy it was. No splicing needed!!

The guy on the phone was very knowledgable when I ordered mine.
