Brief Description: Re-routed switch panel wires from the panel
Re-routed switch panel wires from the panel to the rear of the instrument panel.
Re-routed the fuel gauge cables from the tanks once I noticed that the added VOR antenna cable would not fit through the hole used by the other antenna cables while being shared by the fuel gauge cables. Drilled a hole adjacent to the antennae hole and inserted a snap bushing.
Re-routed the antenna cables to the rear of the instrument panel area after adding a R-400 coax cable to the other three cable that pass through the right side of the center spar. The antennae cables now remain on the left side of the F-802R-R Bulkhead. They formerly crossed on the forward side to pass through a large snap bushing above. I enlarged the other hole and inserted a snap bushing directly above the cables penetration of the bulkhead. Now the Antennae cables are better separated from near by power and signal wires.
The added R-400 cable will be used to connect the VOR antenna in the right wing tip to the GNS-430W. A splitter will need to be added to this antenna cable to provide both VOR and Glide Slope signals from the single antenna. I plan to put a female BNC connector on the VOR cable at the fuselage side for ease of connection of the antenna during wing installation.
