Hey guys!


My buddy has agreed to help me do a wiring harness with my 78 BRAT.  He said if I get a kit he can help me build it, but he needs to know the specs I need.  Anyone know of what the most reliable kit I could get to work for this?  I also plan on doing the ea81 alt/disty swap when I install the harness.  I just need something simple, preferrably with labelled leads to build a new wiring harness.  This will be a great learning project for me and I'll post pics and my steps so others can learn too!

No kits available.  A factory harness for a 78 is probably the easiest and then modify the items you need to suit.

I guess I should've specified better.  I'm talking about the build-your-own harness kits, not a totally wired harness.  How many circuits would be sufficient and what is a good make?
