Default RV8 wing additions/modifications

Hello all....I am currently building my wings and plan on installing wingtip lights, g3 avionics to include auto pilot and pitot tube. Is there any modifications for wiring and other sorts that need to be done while the wings are being built? Any suggestions comments or concerns are welcome!!

Default wing mods

I installed wing tip lights when I built my RV8 but I think next time I would consider installation of the in wing duck works mounting kit. This kit gives a larger area for installation of landing/wigwag lights and would give you more options. The wing tip lights work fine and if you selected systems fit go with that but something to consider. There is also a mod for installing the wing tips with hinges similar to the Vans cowling installation might think about plane is polished and it would be nice to just zip the tips off whenever polishing.
