Finished wiring and labeling the connectors for the left and right MFDs. Part of the work had already been done, so it only took a short while.
Before connecting the rest of the MFD stuff, I got the static and pitot lines connected to the MFDs. The connection ports are pretty hard to see when all the connectors are in place.
The thru-firewall connectors for FADEC are torqued in place and fully wired on the panel side. Now I am wondering how much clearance I will have after the engine is in place. I have measured this about 15 times and the score 7 to 7 with one undecided.
Things are looking really neat and traceable behind the panel! I even know where some of the wires are supposed to go!
Well, some things are coming together. The problem still remains that as soon as a bundle is finalized, there are 2 more wires to add.
I have tried (at Bill's suggestion) to wire all the hot (+12v) wires so they can be bundled together. All hot positive power wires are red.
I could post hundreds of pictures of wiring. I think if the plane weighs 2,000 lbs, half of it will be wiring! These are the FADEC enable switches. They are 3-way (on-on-on).
