Default Safety wire

I have a '12 on order.

Doing some shopping before the build (paint, flaring etc). Regarding safety wire - which sizes are required for the ULS engine, please?

I'm shopping from overseas, so trying to cover most of my requirements in as few shipments as possible.

I'm not a -12 guy, but the 3 most used sizes are .021, .032, and .041. If I had to have only one it would be .032.

Vans keep 032 and 041 safety wire at quite a reasonable price. Get them to throw in a pack of each with your order. It will add about US$20 to your bill. You will have enough to build a squadron of RVs, and have enough still left to leave to your heirs and successors.
A 12 will probably use a couple of feet at best. I'm constantly looking for uses for the stuff.
