Depends on your perspective I guess......

If you keep in mind that the RV-14(A) is a very complete kit with every design aspect done for the builder in advance (assuming they don't choose to go off trail and make any changes). So the firewall fwd kit will come with parts (in this case a fuel hose) that will only fit if all of its associated parts are installed correctly (and it helps pump up the egos of all the earlier builders that had to work through this type of detail on their own )
Opinions, information and comments are my own unless stated otherwise. They do not necessarily represent the direction/opinions of my employer.
