This got me thinking about the 12 fuse loom and the 14 fuse loom as I'm doing a full resto on a mk1 Escort, the original wires got burnt so I've no other option.
Apparently they are used mainly on hotrods and classic car restos ... I'm not going original so for me these looms are a great idea and for around $60 , why not...

I concur with Marty. are basic wiring for hotrods with minimal circuits...just like an escort.
 
Positives:
The wires are labelled for use which makes the inevitable problem solving easier
Solid insulation making it robust
Wire size means load isn't much of an issue AWG 13 from memory
 
Negatives:
AWG 13 means they don't fit Deutsch DT pins without removing 7 strands (of 26)
heavy and large bending radius because of the insulation
No fuel pump wires (assume mechanical pumps in hotrods)
Odd dash
Expensive compared to the one Marty posted.
 
I ended up replacing the fuse box with a series of Fuse/relay boxes in a dedicated analogue/manual PDM! on an electrical control tower in the passenger footwell. Added the extra wires for 3 pumps, 4 fans, rain light and ECU
 
All back out of the car again for more work.

Hello JP, it's been ages lol
Yes I like how the wires are labeled every ft or so, so you know what is what .
I had a quick look at the 14 fuse I linked and it has a fuel and a/c which could be handy for something else like maybe spoties or power windows , sunroof !!
On a side note, the link just sent me a offer of $52.50 , ten buks off so am going to get it now lol , win !!

Nothing happens quickly!
moved to the UK and back again in the last few years. Built a place to put everything and have...cough...5 modified cars!
but its the escort's turn again. Been collecting parts and tools. It never ends
