After due consideration I have decided to make my own loom (cheaper than bought ready made 1) and also get a modern blade fusebox, I have ordered all the wires/fusebox/relay holders/fuses from Vehicle Wiring Products, so they should be here soon Smile and the old loom will be consigned to the bin Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
