Absolutely not. Itís just different solutions for different people. I chose to have the avionics wiring done by a very experienced person versus doing it myself. I figure I saved several (at least) months that way. My point was that regardless of which way you go, I think you will need additional wiring from the fuselage harness to all your avionics.

Also, Steinair makes the fuselage harness for Vans. They can provide you with specific information regarding your plans. Good luck!!

As said above, my harness as delivered by Vans was in my opinion to short, I you want to use it, I suggest contacting Steinair and let them know that you want the Vans harness but with additional lenght to all wires leading to the center section.

The area behind my panel looks like a mess now, if I would have another 1m/3 feet or more to all wires I would have been able to do a much better job.
