My new loom arrived from Auto Sparks a couple of weeks ago. I am now wondering what I have taken on!
At first inspection it looks well made and the connectors look correct, but won't know until I try and fit, which is not likely to be for two to three months. I will post how well it goes (or not):unsure:

Geoff - Good luck with the install! I'll - in conjunction with a mechanic friend who has infinitely more patience than yours truly - be doing the same thing later this year. My oem harness is a mess after years of previous owners splicing in, cutting out and basically bodging up the works. Seems easier to start afresh.

What were your choices besides Auto Sparks? I seem to recall another company in the UK (or perhaps Germany?) that sells Montreal harnesses, only they further distinguish for cars that came with factory a/c and those that didn't. My Montreal appears to have had factory a/c that previous mechanics/owners messed up over the years with the wrong condenser etc etc grafted into the system. At some point, I'd like to bring it back to how it left the factory, which is why I'm asking about the harness. Thanks!

Hi Malex
I seem to remember seeing harnesses from one of the German supplier's but I can't remember which one.
I went to Auto Sparks because they are not far from me, but also Rob Thompson who is well known for rebuilding Montreal's and he uses them.
I don't have air conditioning and to be honest didn't cross my mind if the wires for it were included in the harness.
I suggest you take a look at there website www.autosparks.co.uk and maybe give them a call.
Regards Geoff

I have removed the old loom after taking many notes and fitted the new loom to the rear of the car,. I laid out the new front one as suggested as suggested by Brian on the floor and then laid the old one beside it. I have to say it all looks very good so far and I am pleased how the new one matches, I think I can safely recommend Auto Sparks.
Anybody thinking of ordering one bear in mind they is several weeks lead time. Also specify RHD or LHD and air con or not.
