New Wiring in 65 Swap

Hey all. So my 351w swap into the 65 coupe is going along alrite... a bit slow but im in no rush... anyways, ill be installing aftermarket electric gauges and since im swapping the engine as well, i figured why not wire everything with new stuff. im well versed in electrical and even some electronics... so it wouldnt be a problem. I wanted to update the electrical system while im at it with a modern type blade fuse box. i already ripped out all the engine bay wiring to prep it for paint. do you guys think i should rewire that and the rest of the cars wiring as well? its no where near as complicated as a modern car so shouldnt be TOO much work, right? or should I just get like a painless wiring harness? to do it myself, where would i get a modern-type fusebox? junkyard? the whole electrical system works fine, but i was thinking of doing some LED retrofitting for the taillights, etc, and obviously the wires are old and such, so what do you guys reccommend?

EZ-Wiring sells a 21 circut kit complete with new-style fuseblock and all for $150. Very similar to painless's universal setups for a fraction of the price. The LED tails are a bolt in swap.

I purchased and installed a painless blade type fuseblock. I just ran my circuits as I needed them. It came with a turn signal and hazard flasher and horn relay.
