On my first 3800 swap, I took the complete harness out of the donor car and stripped it down to individual wires. I got rid of the shorter wires but kept the longer ones and rolled up several of each long color/gauge to put in my inventory. I don't think I will ever have to pay for wire again. Something to consider.
