I was just wondering if anyone knew where to buy different color electrical wire at a decent price. I'm looking to clean up some wiring in my car and repin some connectors. I'm hoping that I can find wire that is the same color as most of the stock wiring (i.e. black w/orange stripe) so they need to have a VERY LARGE selection of colors and combinations. Thanks.

If you are desperate try Autozone. They only sell them by like the 1000 feet kind though. They are like 4 bucks per package. So however many colors you need, I guess you have to buy as many packages.

Being the cheapskate I am, I just bought black and red. I use it for everything. I just electrical tape color code it.

Incase anyone cares, I would refrain from "just" buying wire. The deal with wire is generally limited to the quality of insulation. Factory wire is generally TXL spec wire. This is the same wire ford/gm and many others use for the oem wiring. Good stuff.

Here is a bit of spec. Search the web for TXL wire and you'll find a few good sites that sell all the colors you can handle.

I've got just the answer for you. Your local university. At the university that I attended in the senior design lab they had all kinds of wire for free.

This will obviously be somewhere in the engineering buildings...but you'll have to find out for yourself.
