I would suggest that you give Rhode Island Wiring as try.  They are located 
at http://www.riwire.com/ I had them do a complete set of harnesses for my 
1938 Oldsmobile Business Coupe.  They did a much better job than any I have 
used on other vehicles.  They are not a cheap way to go though.  I believe 
in the saying, "You get what you pay for."
