I think I'd buy a "Mac Tools" truck before breaking paint on screws holding instrument bay cover...

Also curious of how much time this has taken others to complete.

I needed the harness extension, my guess is that most recent 12is builders will need it. Mine is a dual Garmin setup so I'm not familiar with what may change with other panel configurations but it really wasn't even close and I think most will need it.

As to the time frame, it's pretty easy. My 13 year old daughter did 95% of this SB with close guidance over the course of 4 evenings. An experienced builder with a longer attention span would probably do it in a couple hours. This is with the forward top skin removed.

I did not need the extension. I pulled the pins from the old connector and cut the wires as long as I could. Ended up about perfect. (Garmin system, received 7/27/22. Probably one of the last ones to come without the updated module and connector.)

Same story here, for what it's worth. Completed very recently on a new build, no extension required.
