Wiring: 5.5 hours

Ran 6ga wire from SSC to powergate. I originally had 8ga but since the powergate and SSC both are fused at 100 amps the larger gauge is more suitable.

Installed terminals on remaining switch wires. Began organizing and zip ties wire bundles.


Wiring: 4.3 hours

Ran start contactor wiring.

Drilled USB power mount hole in mid cabin cover. Ran pilot/copilot pitch trim wires from cockpit floor to GAD 27. Mostly done with cockpit wiring wiring except for a few ground wires.

Strobe light power: 2.3 hours

Ran into an issue when I went to hook up strobe power. The strobe wiring is 20 ga and the main power wire is 16 ga with a 10 amp fuse. Problem is a 10 am fuse is too big for 20 ga wiring that splits off to each strobe. So I am running the main wire to feed a fuse block with appropriate fuses for each wire. Hard part was finding space. I settled on the right forward gear tower. Had to reroute the wires just need to order the fuse block to finish.

Drilled holes in console for trim breakers, cabin LED switch, and bag warn LED.

Panel wiring: 4.2 hours

Fabricated switch LED ground wiring and BAT1 contactor ground. My switches have LED so wiring the battery contactor between the switch and power source resulted in too much voltage drop for the light to work. So I have to remove one wire and install two wires to power the switch prior to the contactor.

Terminated flap switch wires. Ran CO2 ground and alert wiring.

Wiring 3.0 hours

Laced GDU460 wire harness. Match drilled and countersunk panel switch spacer to panel.

Cut and glued flap switch panel spacers. That was too much work but the switches are rock solid now. I should have done toggle switches but it looks cool.
