I ended up going with an 18 circuit harness from Rebel Wire. All the wiring harnesses that were available were very comparable as far as I could see. The main reason I went with them is cause they were(are) a Tennessee business. They had SUPER great tech support and helped me probably a half dozen times with my simplest electrical questions. I made notes and sketches right on the directions (great idea by the way for future reference). My experience ended up being not so bad. PLUS, the truck runs and drives and all the components work without issue! Well, I still haven't wired up the wipers, haha. The next complete rewire that is foresee is my dad’s ’36 Ford pickup, but it should be a cinch and probably half the circuits of my squarebody. You can bet though; I’ll be using Rebel Wire! ALSO, I’ll print out this Hotrod article to keep with my notes and to refer to doing the rewire. It's a great write up with VERY helpful information.
My dad and brother often start my Impala when I’m not around. As it turns out, it wouldn’t start last weekend so I tinkered with it this weekend. Turn the key. Nothing. The battery tests fine, but the solenoid wires look sketchy. Wiring issues are just part of owning a classic or antique car, right!? I guarantee I will NOT be doing a complete rewire on this one!
