What We Do: We offer refurbishment services for vintage Mustang underdash and related harnesses at attractive prices with a two year, no questions asked, guarantee for the non-concours hobbyist. We can also convert 1967-1973 non-tach harnesses to a tach configuration.
How We Do It: Every harness is examined for broken insulation, wires, connectors, and pins, and repaired using only OEM components and professional tooling. Every harness is cleaned and re-taped where appropriate. Every wire is checked for continuity and any wire run showing higher than expected resistance is repaired. Repairs are typically made using uninsulated butt-splices and covered with heat-shrink, in accordance with best practices in the electrical repair industry.
What Comes With Service: Every harness comes with a new set of fuses, a complete printout of each wire's connector type, wire color, wire number, function, and where that wire goes within the harness, an instruction sheet for short-free installation, and a two year, no questions asked, guaranty. Shipping within the US is included in the pricing.
How Much Does It Cost: Refurbishment of an underdash harness is $175, and a core charge of $50. Conversion from non-tach to tach configuration is $50. We prefer to refurbish your harness instead of replacing it with an existing one; this insures your harness will have the necessary connections for your set of equipment options.
Why Do We Do This: The cost of quality reproduction underdash harnesses is risen to unprecedented levels. While the quality of reproduction is excellent, the average hobbyist has little alternative but to repair an existing harness or go to others who offer concours level harness restoration services. Our harnesses are guaranteed to meet or exceed the original performance specifications, but may have visual flaws when compared to concours-level restoration efforts. These flaws typically include splices with shrink-tubing that may be visible. However, all wiring, when installed correctly, cannot be seen by a Judge without extraordinary effort.

How Long Does It Take: Typically, it takes one full day per underdash harness. With a recent retirement, we now work 7 days a week. Harnesses are refurbished on a first-in basis. Depending upon how many orders have been received, turnaround time is typically one to two weekends. Upon receipt of the harness, we will e-mail you with an anticipated work schedule.
