I plan to remove the fittings this way and patch the wrongly placed hole from the outside. Then relocate the fitting. If planned out properly, I think I can accomplish it without too much extra work.

John, separate question but do you have a source for the electrical connectors you are using? They seem like a nice solution.


Wow looks like I am in the same boat. I installed the BNC connector for my capacitance fuel quantity indication system in the same location. I will have to see how the center wing spars fit. I am hoping they just clear. Or I will have to cut holes in the rear baffles and install new ones. Man what a pain.
