I had a fellow here in Sydney quote me $2500 for a new loom fitted unfortunately he has retired and his son is more interested in loud sound systems but most older auto elects should be able to do it if you want to do it yourself there is vintage wiring down your way

ive come a cross them on AULRO and they said they have never done 1 before for S3 only done 2 ,2a but I forgot to tell them I might be able to come across a colour diagram if it helps them should I give them a second try with that? did ask some old elects near by just by judging $1200 not seeing or knowing what it looks like ive looked at the original and made me want to hit my head on something hard didn't know were to start and were to finish

You can get a lot of the individual harnesses which will likely be sufficient for your needs, to replace the damaged ones.   The LED lamps will merely be changing the flasher can to an electronic one.

If you want to go that way, try P.A Blanchards in the UK. https://secure.pablanchard.co.uk/search.asp but you'll need to supply the part numbers for which ones you want.  (I'm sure someone here will provide them for you).

looks like I can have a lot of fun on that web site with my bank card with a lot of things going to wait till my funds catch up with me but im thinking of starting all over again with the harness a lot of the plugs are like sand in my hands they just fall apart in my hands
