Why are wiring harnesses so expensive?

Figured I'd replace all the wires at once until I saw the price!!!!

Now I'll make my own, but I can't help wondering why they're so expensive? With a jig and some measurements, surely they can be whipped up faster than would be necessary to justify ~$200!

:twisted: They are only expensive if you are buying them. They are a fair price if you are selling them though. :twisted:

To buy restoration parts, such as cloth covered harneses to match the originals you have to pay premium bucks, to get modern functional ones, they are much more reasonable.
