Default More wiring.........

Jack and Froggy, cheers for the feedback.


With the nearside wings in place I could crack on with the front lights wiring. To meet the IVA requirements I needed to securely fix the wiring under the wings. To fix to the GRP wings I made up these pads......... I pop riveted these special cable ties to 4cm square pieces of aluminium. (I've had a packet of these cable ties in my box for years and never found a use before.)

I then glued the cable tie mounts to the front wing with a good dollop of PU adhesive. This time I remembered to remove the black schultz coating and I roughened the surface with some sandpaper.

I also bolted a cable tie mount to the side of the headlight shell.

After painting the support pads and surrounding areas, i have completed the headlight and front indicator wiring.

The side light wiring runs along the upper wing support.

..and the side repeater wiring runs along the lower wing support.
