.4 hrs
Two packages arrived today. The SteinAir order, with wire, terminal blocks, and the cabin lighting products. And the AC Spruce order - the PC680 battery, stainless AN3 hardware, Adel clamps, a few bits a wire I forgot to order from Stein.

Discovered that the "stainless" hardware affects my compass. So can't use it to mount the ADAHRS as I was planning. I guess I'll make a trip to Home and Aircraft Depot to get some brass hardware.

The .4 hrs is charged against installing a protection diode on the starter contactor. Also applied some heat shrink to the master contactor diode
