As the title suggests I'm looking at getting a new loom for the SuperSpec to get rid of the birds nest under the dash and sort out some electrical gremlins.

What do people think of these 2 and which would be the best or easiest to fit in.

I have a rapid fit, once I realised how to use it, it was simple enough. I vaguely remember the guy has now stopped doing kit looms though....

They still do the 7 style modular looms on their website. Will drop them a line though

I assume you mean installing? Coz you wouldn't be wrong lol.

I vaguely remember seeing something about it, it may have been on Facebook as I can't find their page now....

I have used 2 rapid fit looms and they have been really well put together, I did see some posts about them no longer doing them though

Hi, hope it is okay, but I would just let you know my experience with Rapidfitlooms. We ordered a loom for a Escort Rally car, was told it were ready within 5 weeks. He received the old wiring harness where he should use some of the connectors from, the 13th March 2017, the 17th july we finally received the new loom. We tried to contact him many times without luck during this period. He promised several times it would be sent next week.... For him next week means in a couple of month. 

When we finally received the wiring harness, he hadn't returned the old harness as promised, the connectors he should use from the old harness wasn't fitted on the new loom, nor sent back to us. He should fit a FIA approved main switch which wasn't fitted neither. He promised to do a partial refund due to the long delivery time, this didn't happened either. 

 

We finally got in contact with him again, where he promised to return the old harness so we could get the connectors, this was just one more thing he couldn't manage. 

 

All in all, if you want to gamble with your time and money Rapidfitlooms.co.uk by Richard, is the right place. 

Can't recommend at all.

Strangely that sounds the complete opposite of both my dealings with them, both looms were the 7 type looms altered to my spec and really good customer after sales...

i would have to agree with ThomasD my experience with rapid fit looms was very similar weeks past delivery date he would not answer my emails luckily i had paid through paypal so had to take action that way to get a refund then went to premier looms and got great service  

and i only live about two miles from where rapid fit trades from thought i might get it quicker how wrong was i

The loom seems to be of okay quality, but the customer support isn't there at all. He also deleted his facebook page after we and other customers gave bad response. 

The only thing he delivered of what he promised was the loom. None of the changes we payed extra for were done. Now we are just missing the old loom with the connectors, so we can go and buy them somewhere else together with the FIA main switch. 

 

It's a shame, if he had done a good job and delivered what he promised we would probably have ordered a few extra looms for other customers here in Denmark.
