Default Alternative to Painless

The race car I bought has a Painless switch panel in it. I want to rewire this car so I know what's what. What other vendors make comparable wiring panels? Thanks

Check out K&R. They're not cheap, but you get what you pay for. That's what will be going in my car soon.

I dont know if they make switch panels like you need, but I used an EZ Wiring harness when I rewired my Impala. Loved it. And it was a fraction of the cost of a Painless. I think it was $250 or pretty close to it. You might wanna check them out

Ron Francis has a complete line of wiring supplies. They carry harnesses, switches, bulbs, LEDs and custom door openers and just about any electrical component you need.They have a large downloadable pdf file catalog.

I like these. Good quality and reasonable price. Circuit breakers instead of fuses is a nice feature.

They come with the wiring. The roll bar mount is a clamp on deal that requires no drilling. I used one of these when I put my car together 8 years ago and never had any issues with it.
