Has anyone used EZ Wiring for the harnesses, dashes, and gauges? I found their website and of course it has all of the good things a webpage would have on it. Before I drop around $600 I want to make sure the product is a good product.
18 fuse 21 circuit harness $185
Dash Panel 6 gauge $140
set of 6 Shark gauges $209
Does this seem reasonable? I know in some of the other catalogs the harness is around $400-600.
I used the 21 circuit kit to wire my 60 and was very happy with it. The color coding is GM based, but every wire is clearly labeled every several inches. I would buy it again. I don't have experience with their gauges or panel, but I suspect they are fine.
Take a look @ centech wiring kits, I now use these exclusively on all vehicles I rewire or upgrade for clients. Priced right & quality thruout.

I also use centech. Have used them on many cars and trucks over the years. Nice small unit, fits anywhere, never had a problem! Company doesn't advertise like the big boys, but I think they make an excellent product.
I have used several differant companies. I have wired two GM trucks and my Model A with a GM engine. They all seam to be about the same. Pick the cheapest one, but make sure you view their wiring instructions on their web site first. My thought is wire is wire and fuses are fuses.
I used the 21 circuit EZ Wire kit for my '59. The instructions aren't the best but not bad. If you have a reasonable understanding of vehicle wiring it won't be too hard to install. All the wires are labeled where they go.
The kit is good for the price but isn't perfect. There are some issues such as the fuel pump wire being hot all the time and the gauges come on when the key is in accessory mode. Just little things like that here but nothing that's hard to fix.
If you have the extra money then one of the higher end kits would definitely be better but I would still recommend the EZ wire kit
