98 Targa LX Lighting problem. Complete re-wire?

Currently, either all the lights come on, or none at all. Seems to be pretty random (mostly going off at night of course).

The only thing i have hooked up is the headlight and tail light, and that is all I want in terms of "extras"... so I have a mess of unused wiring. I like things nice and tidy and I certainly don't need all these extra wires crammed behind my headlight.

Has anyone attempted a complete re-wire? On a scale of 1 to Total Bitch how would you rate this mission? I have the wiring diagram and am pretty confident I know what is what.

I just pulled the cover off and a lot of the wiring is pretty gnarly...crimped, missing insulation, oily...I'm going for it. Can anyone recommend wire gauge?

Just use any wire really. I think I used 18ga that I got from auto zone.

For anyone else that is intimidated by this...don't be. It's cake, make or find a new wiring diagram and rip that old shit out.
