    your wasting your money buying one. I bought one from C.P. years ago for my swtd when i had it and chopped the shit out of it. since then i make my own. real easy. i bought a bunch of wire from a guy at the good guys swap meet in 100 ft. rolls of all the correct size and color. It may not be marine but its auto wire and works just fine. you can tie strap it or shrink wrap it also. the amount you pay for one, only to cut it up, save your money and make it yourself.

    x2 on slot car, some times you just need to do it your self can be cheaper/ easer, my harness was from a skyjack sissor lift, all nice and cover ect.

    I do make them for boats and cars. I have a 20 year history with 12volt. I braid all my wires so you dont have to ziptie them together. If you have any questions please pm me. Thanks Michael

    Better off making your own and if you don't know learn. If you go somewhere and have someone do a "custom" job for you, be prepared to break out your wallet as it will cost you out the ass and most likely won't be what you expected.
