I was in a crunch for free time to do mine, so went for the Blau
harness.  I would have done it a bit different, but it works well
as they designed it.

I did have to fix a couple of problems, some connectors didn't mate
and one side needed some pins transposed for the 4-pin.  I also added
the factory boots for the plugs (didn't come with the harness) and 
ended up sending Scott M. a note about the connector on one side not
having the same orientation as the other.  He has an excellent page
of information for this:

Anyone who cannot cope with Mathematics is not fully human. At
best (he) is a tolerable sub-human who has learned to wear shoes,
bathe, and not make messes in the house.
