Here are some details of electrical installation. Also included are pictures of my pitot/static line routing.

For instrument panel wiring, see my instruments panel page.

The battery contactors are located behind the pilot seat on a channel fabricated for the purpose.  At the time I made the electrical system, I was not sure of the exact location for the battery.

For the electric trim tab servo connections, I used DB9 connectors from whose I removed the shell.  After the wires are soldered, the whole thing is packed with GOOP.  A shrink wrap sleeve is installed.
