My stick wires are at least 6" too short and even then there would not be a lot of freedom of movement. The main wire bundles that extend up to the panel may be long enough to reach the centre avionics but there certainly will not be enough to reach switches and breakers. Thus more connections and future potential failure points will be required. The small molex connectors are not user friendly and it would be much better to use D-sub type connectors for them.
The wiring harness is to me, the only little black cloud in the whole kit.
To end on a good note; the wiring harness diagram is available from the website and I was able to get a local printer to print it full size, 3' by 4', and with the labels on the wire ends tracking down issues should be easier.
