Brief Description:  Right Wing Wiring Provision

With all the bulkheads done, it's time to get started putting the fuselage together, but I need to get the wings structurally complete and moved to the airport to make room in my garage at home. Not much today, just making provisions for antenna (or whatever) wiring in the right wing. I had one 3/8" through hole in one rib to open up to 5/8" for 9/16" ID snap bushings to pull antenna wiring to the right wing. Even if I decide not put antennas in the wingtip, the holes can be used for whatever extra wiring might be needed.

Before installing the snap bushings I deburred all the holes and/or smoothed them with maroon scotchbrite. After installing the bushings I ran a piece of twine through the holes and tied off about a foot on each end so I'd have something to pull the wire or cable through when the time comes.

I still want to scuff, clean, and prime the big aileron pushrod and (maybe) install it before riveting the bottom skins on the wing.
