Rebel Wire sent me this photo of the kit I ordered (9+3)! The other thing I love about the kit is how small it is... easy fit under the dash!

Ordered my harness from Rebel Wire on Fri... got it on Mon (they're in Texas... I'm in Texas)! Check out the writing on the wires! Sorry for my slightly outta focus fotos!

Tripper, I've wired cars from scratch all my life and decided to try an aftermarket/hot rod wiring setup when I redid my 27. It really does make it easier.

I am getting closer to the point where I have to wire my 29, but I have boxes and boxes of wire and components (I work in the marine industry) so I probably will use those instead. But, if I didn't have those, I would definitely by a kit, like you have.

I figure, this is probably my last car project, so I better use up what I have or my sons will be inheriting all of it.

Don, I've seen some of the ones you've made... beautiful work. I'm not a wiring wizard but have been able to use Rebel Wire harnesses successfully & if I run into trouble... Bob & Jeremy always bail me out!. Can't wait to fire the big boy up!!!

I agree with you that a really nice feature is the purpose of each wire being printed on them. If you ever have to go back and trace a problem, you aren't looking at a bunch of spaghetti and wondering where each wire goes.

When I wired my 46 I used a Painless kit. I learned a lot, and while I'm not sure what company I would go with I know I wouldn't wire a car without a kit again. I think every kit has its pros and cons, but the troubleshooting and time saved by spending a little money on a kit is well worth it.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

I've done the old one wire at a time process and I'm sold on the aftermarket wire harnesses.
