    Multiple closing loops.

    Closing loops are cheap and plentiful, and should be inspected on EVERY pack job for chafe and proper closing tension. I don't see the value in doubling them and possibly adding risk of a container lock.

    First jump - felt sick

    It might go away, it may not. It may be best to try to condition yourself to disorienting situations another way and see what happens. Spending time on carnival rides would be cheaper than stepping up for AFF only to find out the nausea is with you to stay. Or, just get used to throwing up a lot.

    Sit Fly Suit

    Evo's suggestion works well for me, exposing less thigh to the relative wind. Or fly yourself in an "X" form using the distance between your feet to regulate speed.

    who's responsible for this?

    Get in contact with the "Dealer Principal", the individual that owns the dealer. You may get further than speaking to a Service Manager or General Manager of the dealer. Damaging the ABS in a vehicle mod could be construed as a safety concern. Said dealer could be liable in event of a collision.

    When do the nerves go?

    The anxiety and fear you feel is a normal response to your body shifting into "fight or flight" mode. Your response will evntually be retrained through the process of completing successful, exhilirating jumps. Your "learned" response to this state will eventually be arousal instead of panic. The amount of time this will take is different for everyone. As you gain confidence in your abilities and in your gear you will enjoy the experience more and the anxiety level will diminish. Visualisation of successful jumps and relaxation techinques before and during the ride up will help with the process. Different things work for different people, this is something you will want to experiment with and see what suits you best.
