I am talking about the plastic IDC connectors at the end of the ribbon cable that connects the GBfans proton wand light kit to the GBfans Soundboard. I know going closed loom would make it hard to pass that ribbon through the loom because of its connector. After seeing that picture I may carefully slice the tube open and then run the cable. I have never sliced a ribbon cable or changed IDC connectors and I don't want to risk messing anything up.

I don't recall if I took any pictures of my method but I took a little tape, rolled the end of the cable so the connector was oriented vertically and taped it into shape. Then I taped a string to the end of that, and fed the whole thing through.

The sounds worth a shot! I would rather not cut the loom if I don't have to. I do kinda dig the screen acurate look of Egon's pack with the split loom and the electrical tape but I don't think anyone is really using split anymore on their packs lol.
Thanks for the advice!
