If the question is to run a conduit on the existing holes in the ribs that are meant to accept a snap bushing then my opinion says NO
but if you mean to run a conduit separate from those, which I did, then I highly recommend it. I bought a fifty feet of flexible loom, similar to this and the weight is so little, I suspect less than a pound per side, and make the additional wiring or wiring in the future much easier.

I have installed all of my GPS and VOR antenna in the wing tip and the wires go thru this conduit

Default vans conduit

I used the corrugated conduit from Vans held in place with a few adel clamps. Very light easy to split where you need to exit wires mid wing. I left a nylon string in both to make pulling any future wire easy.

Did you use a step drill and drill out holes in the ribs per Vans wiring recommendations or run them thru the lightning holes in the ribs?
Also, how did you secure the conduit in the ribs?

Default Conduit

Absolutely add the conduit. I used 12.7mm 1mm wall nylon tubing from an automotive supplier I worked for when I built my RV, donít forget to leave a sting in the tube for pulling future wires.
