Brief Description:  Wing Wiring & Prep for Closure

Installed remaining wiring into both wings:
- Picked up 16 AWG wire from local aviation supply (Falcon Crest). (18 AWG was out of stock.)
- Installed wiring for navigation lights, stobes, and landing/taxi lights in wing tips. Discussed wire sizing with AeroLEDs CTO via email to claify reasons for recommended 18 AWG wire sizes. Primary reason for this size wire is to allow a single breaker to power 2 Aerosun VX lights (1 per wing), which means using a 10 amp breaker and thus 18 AWG wire.
- Applied RTV to roll servo wires run in right wing top J-stiffener channel.

Dimpled the J stiffeners and wing ribs. Counter sunk the rear strut skin holes. (QB wings left this work for builder to perform, but does not explicitly call it out so I almost missed it in preparation for riveting the bottom skin.)

Began match hole drilling and dimpling of bulkhead for mating fuselage to tail cone. Cleco'ed bulkhead to rear of fuselage, which required drilling out temporary soft pop rivets from baggage compartment floor ribs.
