Where did you get your harnesses? Or did you DIY?

Brian: I made the harness myself. I copied the original wires. Of course according to the automotive standards. I made all from the main harnesses to the shortest standalone wires. Took me weeks...

Niiiiice.

Do you have a recommended source for wiring? Looks like you stayed with the DIN colours. I need to do a harness or two on my wife's SC, on the fence re: buy vs build.

I've purchased the automotive wires in basic colors (red, grey, green, etc.) and then handpainted with acrylic paint pen. It looks really like the original.

replaced spark plugs, upgraded spark plug wires to Magnacore wires, replaced distributor and rotor, checked valve guide clearance, and put on newly coated Fabspeed headers.
