  3. I am doing a 55 nomad as we speak. What do you want to know?
  4. I've used some of their components-ign switch, remote cut off, had good luck with that. Check with "Tugmaster" (?) here, I think he's a Rebel dealer.

    Take a look at the ENOS kit.
    One guy assembles everything. It's a nice assembly. Two things I like about it -

    1. The wires are NOT preinstalled. 2. the instructions are very clear, easy enough for a dummy like me to understand.

    I like that the wiring isn't preassembled. This way, if you cut a wire too don't need to "splice" a new section on....just replace the whole thing..! If you decide you want a larger or smaller (?) gauge wire...again, no splicing, replace the whole wire, etc., etc.
    Like most other kits, labled every few inches on each wire. The better insulation used in most of todays better kits.

    As for the instructions, VERY easy to follow. Each circut is on a seperate piece of paper, very clear, easy to "see" what goes where.

    Another thing, is the horn relay on the fuse panel. Makes things a little cleaner under the hood.

    The fuse box is a little longer thAn most, and in my Stude a little tuffer to mount cleanly, but with all of the other plusses, this isn't a concern.

    Take a look, you might also think it's a good way to go.

    We are dealers for American AutoWire, Ron Francis, and Haywire. They are all great kits. A little info on what it's going into and what all you want to run will possibly help guide you to a solution.

    I find the Ron Francis kits to be VERY user friendly. The Haywire is probably close behind and is mostly what we use in the shop.

    feel free to pm me here or call me at the shop(704-462-1051) and we'll do all we can to help...ken...

    I used an American Autowire kit in my '40 pickup. It had all top quality parts and a notable difference is that the different circuits plug in rather than all of the wires being directly attached to the fuse panel. The tech support was also very good.
  8. I have used the highway 15 kit in 4 of my cars,,helped wire 6 others with this same kit,,I won't use anything else.

    I've used rebel,haywire,Ron Frances and a few lesser known kits,,I've also made my own years ago.

    The Amercian Autowire is a little more expensive than some but it has everything you will need in the box. HRP

    I have installed about ten EZ wiring kits and I think they are great, especially for the price. The insulation on the wire won't burn either, if you ever have a problem later you don't have to worry about a fire.

    I've used American Autowire. I find them to be a good quality product. They have detailed instructions, quality connectors and wire, and nothing else to shop for. I just tape the instructions to the wall in order of the install, package A,B,C, etc., and check them off as I go. That way if I have to take a break from wiring for a week I know exactly where I got to.

    I have wired two of my projects with American Autowire harnesses and I am impressed with the quality of the components. They cost a bit more than some other brands but I think the money is well worth it.

    Take a look at Rebel Wire. They are a big supporter here on the HAMB. I have installed 3 of their kits, and found them very user friendly, as well as very cost efficient.
