What is our Custom Update Series TM Wiring System?
In basic terms, it's the simplest way to update your classic vehicle's wiring with the customized upgrades you want installed.  (upgrades may include: newer steering column, H.E.I., alternator, aftermarket heater & A/C system, reproduction tail light assembly, updated gauges, etc.).  It is a complete car/truck wiring system.

This is not a fits-all system.  It is custom manufactured for a specific year & model vehicle; designed with the foresight, engineering and flexibility to bring your vehicle's electrical system up-to-date.  When you install this system, you will determine the routing of the wires to fit your needs.

This system has been designed with the power capabilities necessary to run separate options*.

*some of these options may include power windows, stereo systems, air conditioning, computerized fuel injection / ignition system, ABS / ride control, other computerized systems, etc.  Wiring for these types of options are not provided with the Custom Update system.

"1960-66 Chevy Truck Custom Update Series Wiring System"

The completely new 18 fuse, 21 circuit, fuse box system that the Custom Update Series is built around comes completely ready to install under the dash. The harness that is mounted under the dash was assembled to accommodate the factory dash supports while not interfering with any aftermarket equipment that you will install under the dash now or in the future.
 
Original dome lighting is included in the wiring system. Additionally, the Custom Update
    series includes under dash lighting and enough spare circuits to add power door locks,
    power windows and much more!
Original design rear body weatherproof boot and tube assemblies and original design light
    sockets make  attachment to original or reproduction tail light assemblies an easy
    plug-in.  Even custom applications require these assemblies for weather protection!
All original connectors are provided for connecting to all original equipment: lighting, fuel
    sender, optional back-up lights, license lights, and even for adding a third brake light.
Simple 3-7/8 male and female connectors are provided to connect any steering column
    from the original to fully modified. The wiring harness is completely GM color coded and
    we even supply the color code to adapt the original system.

All the Custom Update Series harness systems come ready to connect to the updated SI alternator and original coil/distributor or most any aftermarket system without additional parts. All Custom Update Kits were built around, and in conjunction with, other industry leaders.  Our kits are compatible with many of the top name aftermarket manufacturer's products such as: Autometer, Classic Instruments, Dakota Digital, Flaming River, Hot Rod Air, Ididit, Pacific Western's "Rain Gear", Stewart Warner, Vintage Air, and VDO. Custom Update Kits are engineered specifically for the exact requirements of the vehicle.
