Yesterday I picked up a 1969 coupe. The best way to describe this car is it has been somebody else's project car. Its a base model 69 coupe. There are no power windows or power seats. A previous owner has swapped the 200CID for a 302 along with the usual things like aftermarket distributor, sensors, sending units. Most of the electronic things on the car work as expected. There are some things that are not working and some things that are just plane working wrong. For example, some of the headlights dont light up, one of the blinkers in the hood doesn't blink, and when you pull the knob to turn on the headlights, it also turns on the heater blower. I need to address the electrical in this car. I have not come across a really great and comprehensive wiring diagram. I have a bunch of ford shop manuals covering 1969, but they don't have much in the way about wiring. Is there a good resource out there for a complete wiring diagram that is easy to follow for the 1969 mustangs? And while looking into this, I am also considering trying one of those all-in-one kits to rewire the entire car. I see a couple different ones on the market. Is one of them better than the other? I see some of them say they only work with the aftermarket 1-wire alternator and only works with aftermarket ignitions. I think I would prefer one that worked with the stock configuration of the car and then let me pick and choose if I want to run a 1-wire alternator or MSD ignition box. Do you guys have any input to which complete wiring harnesses to get and which to avoid? Also, I have never rewired the entire car with one of these complete harnesses. I understand the general theory behind it. When it comes to the 1969 mustang, how far do you have to take the car apart to rewire it? Do you have to pretty much strip everything out of the entire dash? I will probably skip pulling the headliner out just to swap the dome light. I'd splice the existing wire into the new harness.

Hell yes! Absolutely! My only real question is why didn't I send him my harness a couple of years ago? After reading horror stories about the stock and aftermarket gauge ribbons, and having already veered off the stock rebuild path of my 69, I decided to use a Year One gauge bezel and Auto Meter gauges. I contemplated wiring the car from scratch. Having heard good reviews of Midlife harness rebuilds, I emailed him. I explained my plans and what I would like done. He quickly replied back with options and recommendations. He told me how many folks were in line ahead of me, when he expected to get to mine and the cost. I shipped my writing harness and gauge cluster of to Midlife. He notified me when he received it and that there were some issues with my pos(my words)harness. I really should have taken before pics as it was a joke. Many slices were merely bare twisted wires. Some has more than one splice the length of the wire. Most of the ignition switch wires had bare splices. Randy contacted me every time there was an issue, and kept me up to date during the entire process until he shipped it back to me. I received my package today from Florida complete with instructions. One area of service which fell short is that Randy didn't personally deliver the harness and install it today :) In today's world of crappy service I felt I owed it to Randy to let others know we have an honest, talented top shelf guy right here on our forum, who says what he does and does what he says. Thanks again Randy, Bob. A customer for life.
