Default Making 10FT cable-cable boomslang - does the 64p connector exist?

Hi - I am planning to order the standard parts for a MS boomslang, such as:

(1) 64 Pin Male connector (174518-7)
(1) 26 Pin Female connector (174516-6)
(1) 22 Pin Female connector (174515-6)
(32) .040" Contacts (175061-1)
(16) .070" Contacts (173631-6)

On the first item, this appears to be a cable to board [from what I can tell from TE.

I am interested in making a true cable-to-cable connection [~10 ft] so that I can relocate my MS to the back of the glovebox.
That way, I can switch the stock ECU back in as needed, without further mutilating my existing harness connectors. This also can mean that I won't have to do contortions anymore to plug in / plug out.

Does anyone know if there is a cable version of this connector?
It may not, since these parts are intended for ECUs....

I could make a board with thru-holes for the connection to the existing harness, but that seems unnecessary. I guess it's doable...

What approach have others used?

You can solder wires directly to the pins. Add some shrink tubing and it's not completely horrible.
