: I just want to know if a compleat wiring harness is avable at all. If not I mite make a new one. If I have to make a new one is there a market to sell them to those of you how want new wiring in your resteration project. I was thinking around $200 to $300 for the complet thing. Let me now on the board and I mit just make up a few.

Mike, I have never made up a complete wiring harness, but I have removed one from a 74 02. Let me tell you, it is a complete pain in the a--. My suggestion would be to seperate the wires that need replacement and just replace them. When you got up under the dash, it is a birds nest of wires running everywhere. By the time you sort out what goes where, you will be ready to just go out and buy a new car. I still haven't figured out how the BMW folks got a one inch thick cluster of wire through a 3/4 inch hole. I had to cut the firewall to remove the wires. (that was ok, it was a donor headed for the crusher) But if you decide to do it, Good Luck!
