    Pal of mine is using a Painless kit to completely wire his 56 hotrod truck. It's areally cool and easy to use kit. All wires say what they are printed all along them!

    I used a Painless wiring kit when I installed my fuel injection on my 85. Painless kits are really easy to use and come with instruction books that are pretty good.

    All my connections on my harness were marked as to what they where and the connectors were already installed and they just popped right on. I highly recommend Painless wiring. Good quality, good price, and easy to use. There tech support hotline is awesome too. They are very knowledgeable.

    Nothing wrong with a Painless wiring harness--but with so many trucks in the junkyards I'd say you'd probably be able to score a good harness cheaper there--but then again,the wires wont be new and clean(the copper itself)and newer is always better if you can afford to get it......
