When it came down to wiring the 1968 Chevrolet C10 project, Ryan Manson, Editor of Custom Classic Trucks Magazine, chose to use a Painless Performance wiring harness for its simple integration with various components in the truck. If you’ve been following along in the magazine, we’ve completed an extensive transformation, including swapping out the long box for a short and have even managed to stuff in a supercharged, late-model LS 327ci small-block for power.
Today, we get a peek inside at the Painless Performance wiring harness (part number: 10206) that Manson used. The fuse box was installed in the stock location right underneath the dash on the driver side where the wiring will be run to all the electrical components in the truck. Amongst the wiring that sits on the floor, you can see the Holley Dominator ECU that will control the supercharged LS.
“This wiring job was one of the more difficult projects I’ve encountered, due to all the additional electrical components we included. Thanks to Painless Performance and their extensive line of wiring products, it was easy to integrate the various computers, relays, and switches using a single harness,” said Manson.
Thinking about purchasing a Painless Performance wiring kit yourself? The 1968-1972 Chevrolet C10 kit is sold at $469.97, has the ATO/ATC fuse block included, and has an 18 circuit quantity. If you’re thinking of running the air conditioning with it, you’re unfortunately out of luck as this factory A/C harness (part number: 30901) is not included in the kit and sold separately at $112.97.
