Wiring Harness- Should/Can I do it?

I have a 67 Camaro Conv 6 cyl with an automatic on the column and idiot lights. While I can do some basic things without totally screwing them up, I am not an electrical wizzard.

The wiring in my car is original and is dry. Bubba was there as there is quite a bit of dried electriical tape hanging down as well as some wiring plugs and clips. I was thinking of replacing the dash harness and maybe the rest of the wiring. How difficult is this? Does it require dash removal?

I was looking at Lectric Limited. ZThey want $375 for the dash harness, $86 for the engine, $149 for the front and $120 for the rear.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Joe

Go with American Autowire harnesses.

Re: Wiring Harness- Should/Can I do it?

Take a look at American Autowire for your body harnesses. They have direct bolt up OEM harnesses or slightly modified ones (if you want to upgrade to HEI, electric fans/pumps, etc). I went to MAD Electrical http://www.madelectrical.com/index.shtml and totally redid my engine harness with numerous upgrades (HEI, 94 volt alt, headlight relays, etc). I followed the excellent instructions and had no problems, and I saw a big improvement. Mark may be a little hard to get a hold of, but he stands behind his products and will talk you through any issues you may have. My headlights and dash lights are much brighter now.

Re: Wiring Harness- Should/Can I do it?

3 questions to ask..

Can you use a screwdriver.. are you proficent with it??
Do you know what wire strippers are.? the ones you strip wires with.. not the womanly kind.
and finaly can you follow directions.??

if youve answered YES to all 3 questions.. do it yourself.. we all have the capacity to learn. Take your time, follow the directions and everything will work out fine. This is rewiring a car not neonatal brain surgery..

Good Luck.
