I'm considering wrapping the bundle with heat shrink in those areas but wondering if there is a better way.
Also, wondering about those that have flying -14's have any second thoughts about how the harness was routed. Having to climb in the tail to pull another wire in the future seems challenging with all the tie-wraps. Or, is this a "stick to the plans" because it's a non-issue? I figure now is the time to consider it before I rivet all the skins on.
I actually installed some extra wires while I built the tailcone - ran them along the right side, opposite the wires that Van's supplied. Then when I was about ready to fly, took them out as I couldn't think of anything I'd need to add back there. If were adding wires later, would find a way to use a flexible conduit through bulkheads or a pull wire along the side J-stiffeners. But I can't think of much I'd add that far aft..
