4 hrs
Install wiring for left wing. This took way longer than necessary since I kept losing the end of something as I pulled another item through. But persistence payed off and I'm pretty happy with the results.

Also ran lines for pitot and AOA in left wing. Had to drill a few more holes for proper line routing. Chose the bay outboard of the aileron bellcrank to install the pitot system. Broke down and ordered a heated pitot from Dynon, since the controller needs to be mounted in the wing, and that is best done before riveting on the skins. That's pretty close to solidifying a choice to use Dynon equipment.

With Glynn's help (another Bro-n-law) cut wing wiring circuits to length and wrapped with nylon expandable sleeve. Then it was off to my sisters house for Christmas dinner.
