HOW WE DO IT
All of our drawings are color, gage, and terminal correct. When
we get an order for a harness that we have not built in the past,
our in-house draftsman works up a blueprint, or shop drawing. We
use the schematics and the customers original to prepare the shop
drawing. The reason we require the customer to send the originals
is the schematics don't give all the necessary information that
is required to build a harness from. Although the schematic tells
you what color the wire is and where it goes to, it doesn't tell
you the correct gages, individual wire lengths, types of terminals
and connectors used, nor what type of braid or loom might have been
used. This is how we ensure our harnesses are exact duplicates of
Once the draftsperson has completed the shop drawing, we can price
the harness and quote the customer. Upon approval, the harness is
put into production. We start with OEM approved PVC wire. We braid
and lacquer all the wire used in our harnesses right here in our
own shop. We even do our own striping where required on our PVC
When an assembler begins a harness, he pulls the appropriate wire
and cuts it to length according to our shop drawings. We now offer
wiring harnesses for a wide range of applications including motorcycles,
boats, trailers and planes. We are constantly adding to our line
of harnesses, as our machine shop completes the tooling required
for many hard to find connectors and molded plugs. We constantly
seek out new ways to improve our products
