I agree! If I was going to completely rewire the car, I would buy spools of new wire and use Mercedes connectors. The plugs are easily dismantled and the solder connections are easily undone. There are no "Printed Circuit Boards" or computers on these vintage cars; it is straight forward basic wiring.

This is probably a good time to remind everyone that leaking fuel lines or carburetors are dangerous. If you can smell gas fumes in your engine compartment your car can catch fire.
