Anyone know where to get original pattern fabric loom wrapping tape for late models?

AES do the individual wires : -

but I think ( ? ) you are thinking of wrapping a bundle of wires.
I've not come across anything and believe you would have to consider a loom re-braiding service from somebody like Autosparks if originality is paramount.
A lot of work taking the old loom out , getting it re-braided and then putting it back in.

Brian,

The looms are woven with the pattern integrated into the weave. Autosparks in Nottingham offer a superb service for this. You just need to send them a completely uncovered loom, including any additional circuits such as electric screen wash, fog/spot lights, reverse light, rear/front screen heater etc., plus a sample of the original weave pattern. They will tell you how to prepare the harness pre-weaving.

It's also a good opportunity to replace any dodgy looking connectors, maybe needing extend some wires and back will come a brand new wiring harness!

Thanks guys. A lot of useful information.

I don't need a complete harness. Just adding some extensions.

This is the kind of thing:

But hoping to find something that is a better match to the existing loom.

Will need it in September when I’m back in Norfolk (UK).

Need to wrap about 3 foot bundle of about 6 wires.
