Any leads on an aftermarket wiring harness that would suit the 73 GTS?

Most of the aftermarket setups I've looked at are so universal that I have concerns with things such as light switch and column connections.

I figured someone here may have replaced theirs already in restoration and I'm hoping for some feedback.

Thanks!

as far as i know there is no aftermarket set up for our cars.      if you want to re do it   you just have to do it yourself and cut and splice in connectors

Lol. Figures, considering NO ONE seems to make anything for the 73. LOL

Just thought I'd try before going through with it. I'm looking at an EZ Wiring setup that runs about $175 or so. Basic large fuse panel with 12 circuits. I just need to replace the stocker so it matches and performs better (than the old glass fuses) with the high dollar Ron Francis Telorvek engine management harness I'm wiring in.

I recently did a rewire of the engine compartment on my 72 GTS.  I found the main harness on Ebay after checking in there for a few months.  Also found some detailed wire schematics there.  I have a 70amp alternator and ended up getting my alternator wire harness from CJ Pony.  It was made for a 72 Mustang but with a little lengthening of the wires it worked perfectly.  I'm not to good with schematics and it took some time to figure it all out.  But now everything is working as it should.  That was my first rewire of an engine compartment...... and hopefully my last.  Did I mention that I hate wireing?

Here is the only thing I have seen. Not a direct replacement.

For the Money, the ISIS system is pretty neat with multiple blocks, but damn $$$

That's exactly like the EZwiring "mini" fuse kit found all over the internet for $130. 

Maybe not with Ford specific wiring color coding, but in general it looks to be the same. 

I believe I will go with the EZwiring  12 standard kit for $170.
