Chad is a busy man, you can ask tododavies as he has started doing them. Depends how urgent it is but diy is possible if you are short on time however the generic empi buggy looms are a waste of money, you can get stuff online I use auto electrical supplies in Tenbury Wells. Non insulated terminals and the crimpers are the best sort to use.

If you have no luck the diy route is easy enough. If using VW stuff a drawing of the switches and stuff showing the terminal numbers and position is a good start. Then fit everything into the buggy electrical wise then you can use a wiring diagram to put the main feeds in power , starter, ignition then wire the other circuits one at a time putting the wires through loose cable ties to keep them together and tidy. The diagrams will help connecting the wires when you cannot read the numbers in place.
 If you look at thin wall cable it has a higher rating and makes a smaller loom for the lights and ancillaries. Some diagrams have the wires sizes VW used originally.
