How much would it be? Wiring question

I want this shop called RPM to rewire my whole 1969 firebird with a new worming harness. How much should I be expecting for the install+harness? I really appreciate you guys helping me with this

Depends - @ $100 per hour expect to pay maybe thousands?
If it's a stock install it will be easier than a PRO TOUR setup.
I've seen nice installs done for about $500 in labor + Parts. Wiring is a thing that you get what you pay for so ask what kind of after install warranty they honor.

Ask about adding extra circuits for maybe HID lights / electric seats / electric windows / dual fans - these are typical electrical mods that if accommodated now may save you some money adding them later.

I'd say be realistic about extra upgrades and call around cuz the only way to know in your area is to shop!

Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

Agreed.

A stock/original replacement is very easy. There are a couple manufacturers that make premade harnesses (Camaro, anyway). One can add some changes, as well: single wire alt., fans, HEI ign., Vintage Air, etc.

If it is a complete custom deal, it could take quite a while, i.e. money. Though, these cars are pretty basic at heart... We would have to know what modification you have to even make a guess.

My 30 year old son recently rewired his 1968 Camaro with an American Auto Wire kit. He looked into may other brands including painless and even into some shops that do them. What sold him is that the shops that he would have choose to do it were recommending the AAW kit because that's what they perfered to use and support later.

In the end you can not go wrong with the AAW kit because it's allows for upgrades, has good documentation, gets good reviews for being well built and their customer support. Still important to me is that it's American made. - If you do this spend the money on a high quality connector crimp tool because it really makes the job easier.

I used AAW for an entire car wire/harness replacement. I found a couple problems. But it was a great product.

I'm not that far on my camaro but when I did the 67 corvette I just ordered a new "oem remake / replica / what ever you want to call it kit from a corvette parts place.

It came as a complete kit, you simply laid it out and everything fit where it should I also got the "fuse box" too.

Granted the camaro probably has more stuff than my vette but I'm sure you can do it on your own. If your worried just start at one end with the new kit and fallow the current wires. I bet it's all plug and play.

Only "issues" I had was getting my fat hands in the dash of the corvette

Like they said get a quality one for sure
