Re: How much for complete wire job?
You sound like you want to outsource this part of the job...however, if you have the time, I'd urge you to do it yourself. I installed my own and it wasn't that hard.
I tore every wire out of my car and replaced it with the American Autowire Factory Fit kit. It is NOT a "universal" kit, it is specifically designed for your make/model/year. In addition to the correct leads for your instrument panel and console gauges, it includes leads for lots of aftermarket stuff (power seats, electric fuel pump, aftermarket gauges, etc.) Also, every wire is labeled every few inches with the wire's function ("Right Turn Signal", etc.) Lastly it replaces the fuse panel with modern blade-type fuses.
To be frank, it was initially a very intimidating prospect, I had never wired a car (or anything) for that matter. I bought a good wire crimper and a soldering gun. I unpacked the boxes of wires and wires and wires and was discouraged. I procrastinated the project for a while, but once I got over the initial intimidation and just started, it was MUCH MUCH simpler than I had anticipated. The instructions were fairly clear and the installation went very quickly. I didn't clock in and out, so I can't give you an accurate measurement, but I think if I added it up, I probably could have done it in 3 days. I took the time to crimp and solder every connection.
My only criticism of the kit was that while learning to make perfect crimps, I mangled a few connections...and had to go get some more at Napa. Wish they had thrown in a few more "spares" is all.
I think it was a really nice product and the install is something anyone can do themselves.
I realize you have a universal kit, but for the money you are looking to spend on installation, you could sell it and get the AAW kit and be plenty of money ahead.
