YO wiring harness
« on: February 26, 2011 - 01:36:31 am »
Does Year One have the market cornered on wiring harnesses? I have been look at other places that do GM cars and things but can't find any other sources for E-body wiring harnesses. I don't really want to do one of those one size fits all harnesses.

Thanks guys. I hate having to give money to YO. I would rather support smaller vendors as they are the backbone of the aftermarket.

One thing to think about though.  That other wiring vendor has had a lot of wiring issues with wires not being crimped correctly and pulling off.

I have personally had to fix 2 of his wiring harnesses and found wires in the wrong holes. I think someone is color blind over there. Lucky it didn't burn up the freshly restored cars.  Year one uses M&H Wiring  and you can get a 20% discount code. There is a reason why they are the bigger vendor.

The best factory style reproduction wiring I've ever seen is from M&H (http://www.wiringharness.com/) and Year One has him locked up so they are the only ones who can sell it.   If it was me, I would get a good discount code and place the order.  You will be very happy if you're doing a factory style resto.
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

I paid the piper and bought harness's for the front and rear lights from Year One. They were spot on. They even had provisions for my front fender turn signal indicators. Yes, I probably paid more than I should have, but it all worked the first time.   :2cents:

Painless makes them too. For my 1972 Cuda 440-6 I bought a Summit 18 circuit harness it is marked about every foot. To where it goes and it has the new spade fuses not the old glass ones. I was tired of shorts and cracked wires and bad connection at the firewall. The wires run right threw the firewall no connections to go bad or corrode or melt. Now it should be good for another 39 years or more.

John, I believe Slotts could rebuild yours.  He is very good at all he does, if he has the time

YO has an EBODY 15% discount that I believe is good indefinitely, plus a 5% bulk discount for over $500.  Also, try a Google search for "Year One Discount codes" (I do this for everything when I am buying online in fact).  It will come up with a list of past and current discount codes.  Try them all and see what works.  I found a code for YO that gives %20 off from midnight Thursday through the weekend.  Saved $150 on a recent order.

I believe it was the WEBDAY one listed at this site:
