About 6 hrs
More wiring.
Received a Dynon care package yesterday, so started with the tach pickups. This involved tapping into the magneto lines with 30K ohm resistors. The resistors have very thin leads, so it takes a while to build up a connector that can stand the abuse of life behind the panel.

Wired in the pitot heat circuit to the switch, along with the LED indicator.
And finally, wired up all the LED with grounding, and pigtails for the controlling signal. Included in this was the EFIS warning LED. Only the fuel pump still left to wire to complete the LEDs.

Also rewired the transponder GPS serial in line. This has a resistor inline, and I wasn't happy with just the resistor exiting the connector. So wired it up so that the resistor is doubled back against the wire, with lots of heat shrink to add mechanical sturdiness.

And yet more wires!
