never used one, but it looks OK in the pics. My only gripe with off the peg looms is that they're usually longer than necessary and you may end up chipping it back to suit.

If you don't mind cabling and electrickery it's pretty easy to make up your own loom with terminals, connectors etc, if you have some cable strippers/crimping tool and a soldering iron...it'd cost you around the same (possibly a bit more) than the one you've linked to, but chances are it'd be better quality. Plus if you buy the tools, they always come in handy for future farkles...

these are ace...https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yato-Professional-Automatic-Electrical-Cable-Wire-Stripper-Cutter-CrimperYT-2313/222793540528?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20171012094517%26meid%3Dd9427011f32b407ea96c977afeec9639%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D173908782533%26itm%3D222793540528&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219


if you're not happy wiring, then 34 aint bad for a plug and play....but check that the connectors are compatible with your lights

Reason I ask is because I am pants at wiring and would probably do more harm than good if I tried. :232:

there's only one way to become un-pants....but if it's a real chore then maybe best to buy a ready made
