Wires

I FINALLY got the right wires to start my project of rewiring the car. I will start with the rear harness. There are still some parts I need (specifically the block and connectors for the fuse panel), but I’m really happy that the wires I just got match what is original. I had to order them from the UK. I found one place in the US that had striped wires, but they are the right type of striping. Amazon had the right type of striping, but it was WAY more expensive than ordering from the UK. Amazon’s supplier comes to $0.45/foot. AES out of the UK has it for $0.125/foot. That’s a huge difference. Plus, Amazon only has 50 foot spools. I don’t need that much. I can order by the meter from AES. Even with the shipping costs, it’s more efficient to order from the UK.

There are 37 different color variations I need. AES has all but 8 of them. They may actually have all of them, as I’m not sure yet what gauge each one is. They also offer custom – which may or may not be economical. I guess I’ll find out when it comes time to get other color variations (the rear harness has 10 and AES has them all.
