Hi.

I am starting to completely strip my car, the current loom is not great and is from an 1972 850 mini thatís been converted with a metro turbo lump.

With the renovation works being a nut and bolt rebuild I would like to replace with something more
Up to date, I suppose there are some benefits.

Has any one done this or have any recommendations?

Lowestoft, Suffolk.

I'd start with looking at what basic electrical features your car has/needs and matching an off the shelf loom to those requirements.
You can then either add to that basic loom to tailor a few minor tweaks or if the modifications were substantial then create an additional/overlay loom to build to your needs encompassing relays and fusing where necessary for high load circuits.

Are you retaining the metro distributer or opting for something like Megajolt?

Another option is self build bespoke loom.

https://www.autosparks.co.uk/ is a good place to start, I've hade wire from them to match the original colours, you can have a new standard loom, or have extras as mentioned added in.

Ok thanks for this.

Iíve looked into it a bit lot now, would
It be better buying the Mk3 Cooper S loom? Now Iím running turbo where Iím going to be needing fuel pump and oil temps etc? Currently mine is a standard Mk3 850 loom. Itís completely shot.
