Holy cow! Finally all the wire is run. Well except for the stuff coming from the wings. That's no problem. There's plenty of room in the outboard snap bushings. The middle ones are seriously packed.
That ADAHRS cable is a honker! That one and one coax really ate up space. Thankfully, it all fits and I didn't have to drill new holes in the Center Section. Antenna doublers are riveted.
Finally I can move on to the last million little jobs to complete this lady. Too many little tasks to think about.
I'm taking a two week hiatus for a VaCay then back in the factory. We have a Great Grandaughter on the way next week. Gotta go see the baby. Someday maybe she will ride with the old guy.

I cannot be, nor will I be, held responsible if you try to do the same things I do and it does not work and/or causes you loss, injury, or even death in the process.

Working on the F-7106 Fwd Top Skin. This is the last skin to be installed and I held off until all of the stuff behind the panel was done.

I've pretty much hit the limit of what I can conveniently rivet by myself, so I'll have to find something else to do until my rivet partner comes back from a business trip next week.

Default OK...been a while...but...

So...I've been putting the SLOW in slow-build, but hit a pretty big milestone this weekend.

It's flipped...and on the cart.
