Had a short session in the shop but was able to
finish up the grounding of the shielded cables used for the nav/strobe &
wig-wag wiring. A butt splice was used to connect all the ground wires together to a
single ground point on one of the inboard seat ribs. The ground wires are a
little long … but that made it easier to crimp the butt splice and the ring
terminal. After the connector crimping was completed, the ring terminal was
connected to the ground point on the inboard rib. Also, the stick grip and spare
ground wires assemblies made yesterday were connected to the ground point
on the inboard seat ribs. Once all the wiring was in place and connected, the
wires were dressed with cable ties.

The other item completed in today’s shop session
was finishing up connecting the ground wire to the +12 power outlet and
dressing the power outlet’s wires and auxiliary audio cables with wire ties. Van's suggests securing the auxiliary audio connector to the top of the power outlet with a wire tie so that is what was done.
