I have both rolled my own harness and used the Blau harness. I would say if
you are really good with crimping, have a good pair of ratcheting crimpers
and have a decent DC electrical wiring understanding you can build your own
for cheaper even factoring in your own time. OTOH, if you are not so
experienced with wiring, then definately pop for the Blau...
