well I have determined a different path. I plan to go through the bulkheads where the main wire harness runs--through the lightning holes. then go back through the bulkhead lighting holes to the stick.
I plan to get the 3/4" hole aluminum fittings and riveting them to the bottom edge of the lightning holes in the ribs, then use snap bushings. Not sure what I will do to hold the wire bundles in place in the bulkhead holes. I was considering using the same aluminum fittings (F14142 fittings shown on 26-04) and riveting them in place.
This also makes running the wires simple.
I have an email into Van's to make sure that it is OK to run the wires this way. I don't see why not at this point. But who knows. If it works, then I have no idea why van's would not change the plans to run the wires this way.
Does this make sense? Thoughts?
