      These have about every color stripe wire you should need I am not really sure what typ3 of connectors you are looking for but bullet connectors are the most common thing to use. They need to be .180 to plug into factory for wiring. I have also bough this wire and have had no problems with it in the last two years. check molex connectors as well deutsch connectors are good for firewall pass throughs if you arent using original wiring. the molded plugs that factory wiring used is not available.I bought these crimpers along with this connector kit and this wire with no problems for the last year

      Be aware that some of the wire sold by Amazon is copper coated aluminum and it can be fragile, causing problems with the wire breaking inside the insulator and resulting in a dead circuit. Aluminum wire will also heat up and expand when carrying current and crimp terminals may come loose from the constant heating and cooling cycles. I use only pure copper conductors in all my wiring. Here's a link to what to avoid when purchasing primary wire. 14 Gauge Single Conductor Stranded Remote Primary Wire 11 Rolls 12 Volt 25 Feet Each - - Amazon.com

      I've used Delco Weatherpack connectors for years but Delco sold the product line and now there are numerous companies selling Weatherpack connectors. Some are good, others not so good. I recently switched to Deutch connectors, but they can be a little more expensive than the Weatherpacks, but they do look a lot nicer.

      Yes! Exactly what I was looking for, thank you! There's a couple of spots I need to redo my bullet connectors, but may just replace them with deutsch connectors to keep it clean and waterproof.

      Weather Pack connectors are easy to work with and assemble, although the connectors tend to be rather large. I used them extensively in my build. I got a big kit from DIY Auto Tune that included all the pins, rubber seals, and connectors in a convenient plastic storage box. They have some other options well: MegaSquirt Wiring Components at DIYAutoTune.com

      I used a 1986 Mustang harness in my car and heavily modified to meet all of my needs. There were plenty of circuits available for all the modernizing I did in my car and I simply removed anything that I did not need. If you don't mind doing a little modifying, grab a junction box from a later model car in a junkyard and make it suit your needs. You could pull all of the wiring harnesses from a donor vehicle and shorten/lengthen them to fit your needs and would be a lot more economical than buying a bunch a new wire.
      Never thought of that, I have some leftover harness' from work and I think one may have a BJB. I don't need a lot of circuits, but the less wire I have to run under the dash, the better. It's a complete organized mess under there with a full a/c box, radio, and clutch pedal in the way. I wish these dashes weren't welded in, would make things so much easier.
