So far so good, Damien called me back within 30 minutes and he knows his products inside out. Glad to hear positive feedback on the company and products.
I guess the 14 uses the same tips as the 10, so it should fit great then.

What did you end up doing about the light holes that comes cut out in the leading edge of both wings?

The 10 doesn’t have precut holes so can’t help you there.

Can you order your skins without the cut outs or is Van against that?
The kit came with brand new wingtips, specially made to fit the LED modules.

The kit was the fiberglass wingtips themselves with integrated light in the back, fiberglas mounts that the modules mount to, the LED modules, and wiring connectors for the modules.

It was a "bolt on" as it gets I suppose. For me as a non-builder the hardest part was the fiberglass work. The mount needs to be fiberglassed into place inside the wingtip. It was challenging, but I had a friend help who build a glasiar. He thought it was a piece of cake.

Here's a gallery of a few pictures I took. The second picture shows the wingtip, LED module, and mount before they got put in the wingtip. The only thing I didn't get a picture of was the light in the back.

Great job on the plane! I am for sure going with these tips, would like to find out from Van's if I can get leading edges without the cut outs for the lights.

Most RV-10's I've seen do not have a cut-out in the wing leading edge for the lights. I've always assumed if there is a cut-out, that the builder put it there. But, I have not reviewed plans for all of Van's models.
