    Need door wire looms

    I'm look for at least one, hopefully two, OEM door wire looms for my cargo doors. See picture for what I'm looking for. Also, if anyone has any of, or can point me to where I can get, the door grommets/pass throughs to go with them would be awesome

    These loom are little more than storm door springs

    Lots of choices here - - - I would use the very last set

    Here is the problem.
    The "correct" factory style door loom in not being manufactured ...Yet.
    How ever you can get creative with after market parts & Fabricate a similar loom your self.
    Its a "van thing". A life style you have to live to understand!!!!

    Still on a mission

    Thanks Guys. I did find one at a salvage yard, but ended up pinching it when clsoing the door.

    So, in an effort to try to restore close to original I have ordered this copper tubing bending springs kit with assorted sizes. Took me a while to remember where I had seen a spring similar to the loom on the vans. They have the flare at one end like the original door loom. I'll let you know how I make out.
