    The original harness was in two pieces, the front light switch part which supplies the front and the rear which joins the front on the right side front fender liner.

    There are some modifications needed to run it with turn signals. Save as much of the old one to sort out the differences. The switch plug on the front lacks a single terminal which is easy enough to add. A few of the Douglass shells needed swapping.

    And save all the little unions inside the shells. The harness that I got didn't have any so we were scrounging them off the old harness.

    So if you're not going for an award winning restoration the Greek harness is the way to go.

    Making your own harness is certainly an option but the time you'd spend doing it is worth more than the cost of buying one already finished.

    I bought a VWM harness, and thought it was worth every penny. My old harness was junk, even the outer shells, so it was worth having a new one made. Didnt have to source the plugs, all the connection pieces, the blinker setup. Along with the time I would have had into building my own, made sense to buy one. It was one piece to my build where I decided to buy instead of build, worth it
