    So I bought my 89 mustang when i was 16, 16 years ago. The dash harness had been hacked into previously b4 and I'm sure i did my fair share adding things here and there. Well the wire Is old and brittle, I have aftermarket gauges everywhere, Nitrous bottle heaters, just stuff everywhere. So I decide while my car is down. (Was vandalized 2 days after finishing my build with only 5 miles on the motorhttp://www.stangnet.com/mustang-forums/threads/finally-got-the-351-in-the-car.876161/#post-8809562 ) Having to repaint again, replace all the glass, and body work.

    Anyways I'm trying to prepare for this cause I want it to go as smooth as possible. I ordered the EZ 21 kit And plan to use all the factory Plugs. I know ordering a painless would have been the best way to go, but try to remember I just finished the project already and funds are tight. So trying to save some time of trying to solder on all the old Pins to the new wires is there a place to order new ones?

    I plan on using as much that came from factory as possible, Though I dont run a heater or AC. I will be using power locks,windows. If Time permits I will try to write a detailed thread on all of this for future members.

    AutoZone has a Ford wiring pin kit , but it's about $5 and doesn't have a lot of pins in it - just enough to make you mad when you run out of pins...

    Harbor Freight is running a sale on heat shrink hot air guns for $10. I have one and it does work good for heat shrinking tubing.

    How to solder see

    That's a good place to start. All the links I gave should have the pins and crimper tool.

    @robert fugate just read the thread you provided a link for. That's messed up. Did you ever get closure on the situation with insurance or arresting the person responsible?

    Get yourself a manual for the car. Rewired my car last winter. Took a while but was worth it.
