This car really needs the treatment given to the Red Rocket. We took that car down to the tub for a repaint and replaced everything. The original wiring harness was retained but any questionable wires were replaced before the harness when back in the car. I swore I would never do that again but this car deserves it.
When you buy new wire for your car make sure it's good quality. Most all of the wire you buy these days is made in China by the lowest bidder and the insulation and copper is not as good as what Porsche used years ago.
Forget about Radio Shack wire it's the lowest quality there is. Go online and search for the good stuff or buy it at a good marine hardware store if there are any in your area.
