Default complete Painless wire harness job 81 Z28

Any of you out there ever done a complete wire harness rewire of a vehicle?

Angie's 81-Z28 is a basket case of wiring mess. For her birthday/xmas present i am going to rewire the whole car for her. The kit is here at the parts store ready for pick up later today.

I have read through the 150 pages of directions (on line download) and all looks pretty straight forward.

Wanting to know if any one here can give me any tips or tricks that are not in the directions...

Biggest thing I have seen about the tips is to not be in a hurry and I know this project will take a few weekends to complete....

thanks in advance.

I've never wired an entire vehicle from scratch but I've traced enough wires over the years.

What is in the kit that you bought or are buying? Do you start from scratch completely and just have connectors and spools of wire or do you get a harness that needs to be modified to match your accessories?
