WW sells the WiringWorks harness. Most if not all places also sell this same one. It's a very good harness. I'd call a few different places though and see who makes their harness, may be able to find it cheaper.
Kustom1warehouse has it for $209 ($25 cheaper than WW) and free shipping.
http://www.kustom1warehouse.net/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=WIRINGHARNESS%20Bug

WiringWorks doesn't have a website, but their info is here, may be able to get one direct for even cheaper.

So long as the one pictured on their website is the one they send you, yes. The picture with the instruction booklet shows the WiringWorks instructions.

well ill prob get alot of crap for this but im going to get rid of the og black

it dosnt have that good of patina and id rather just go ahead and restore it all the way while its already apart and im still young and have a shop at my disposal.

after the new year it should be back at the shop and i will have more frequent updates and i progress with it

now i need to find a color. im stuck between either beryl green or a maybe slate blue im leaning more towards blue though

I like beryl and I am actually starting a build on a 60 for a buddy of mine that will be beryl green. Just ordered $2200 worth of parts for it tonight.
