Short Description:  Clean up wiring

Clean up wiring. So what that really means is going around the aircraft and fine tuning / finishing little projects. Some of these projects have been purposely left to the end. So in no particular order I have:

Routed and re-routed the spark plug wires to ensure no chafing, sufficient length, and maintenance clearance. For example the number one and three cylinders have spark plug runs from the left magneto that go over the oil filter. It took some trial and error to determine the final routing that gave suffient wire length to reach cylinder number one AND clearance to get to the oil filter for oil changes.

Routed, connected and tested the elevator trim system. I left the electrical connection at the trim motor until the end so I could spend some time determining the best connector. That has been finished. I tested it the electrical connection and ran the motor (and the trim tab) to its up and down limits. I need to adjust the connecting arm to get the proper movement of up/down 25/35 degrees.

Installed the cabin heating SCAT tubing, it needed a heat barrier to protect it from the exhaust so that was installed as well.

Researching control stick grips. Everyone seems to want a lot of money for a simple grip. I may have to fabrciate my own.
