Jeff is one of my "silent" helpers. Often, when I post
a question on the Zenith Aircraft's mailing list (on Matronics server), I receive an e-mail from Jeff with
detailed pictures and explanations of how he addressed the same situation.
As you will notice on the following pictures, Jeff works exceptionally
well and is very creative in addressing problems and developing nice
solutions. I recently sent him an e-mail saying that with a so nice
job inside the aircraft, it is almost sad that he has to cover his plane with an
aluminum skin.... but I am quite certain that the exterior quality will
match or exceed the inside.
Thanks Jeff for the good support!

Pitot static are coming in through snap grommets and then under the armrest through the two poly tubes seen there. They are well under any cable runs so they use space that is often wasted.
Wires from strobe power packs and nav lights are coming forward and eventually coming out under the rolled gusset.
Rolled up poly tube are protecting landing and taxi light wires. Got

formed, just rolled - you can make it any diameter to fit the
The 'snap bushings' can be found on page 149
of Wicks catalog and page 96 of ACS. You might find them locally in a well-stocked
hardware store. They must be made of vinyl or nylon.
