Hooked up landing lights

The ground (black) wire attached to the C401J connector that came with the wiring harness in the kit was too short to route through the outboard rib and spar to the landing light. It was originally intended to be grounded to the rib. The instructions for the AeroLED landing lights recommends bonding it to the ground for the landing light which is routed back to the fuselage in order to prevent radio interference. So I removed the black wire along with its molex socket from the C401J molex connector. I ordered new sockets from Mouser and they arrived today. So I cut some lengths of 18 gauge wire and crimped the new sockets on.

Inserted the pin back into the connector and routed the wire.

Crimped on the the ring terminals.

Ran the wires through the adel clamp and connected to the terminals on the landing light. Wire tied everything to keep it neat and tight.
