Upgraded my entire electrical system to a 93 Caprice wagon last year, including the fuse panel, which now swings down from under the dash:


It was a lot of work, but it was worth it.

While you can buy just a fuse panel, there are no specific "kits" to make it plug-n-play for our cars, especially in light of the fact that the ones we have mount directly to the bulkhead connector as a unit -- no aftermarket fuse panel will do this. Expect a considerable amount of work to mount and wire the fuse panel yourself. However, if you are interested in upgrading the entire system, companies like Painless, Ron Francis, and American Autowire sell entire electrical system kits that are prewired to a modern style fuse panel.

like the plug-n-play comment with the old fuse type it could be done?

people rant and rave about American Autowire's kit for our cars. It is a little pricey, but they say well worth it. I believe the kit is around $600.

I went with the much cheaper EZ Wiring 18 harness, and it was alot of work. The videos make everything look so easy. This kit was around $200.

The key with the modern harnesses is, the wires are labeled, but you better have good eyesight and good lighting to be able to read the wires.

The key is, you have to take your time, and have alot of patience. If you don't have patience, then you might want to hire the job out.
