Riveted the nut plates to the inboard bottom skin and the inspection ports.

 

Installed the pitot mast, pitot tube, and pitot heat control box.

 

Two of the crimp-on quick disconnect terminals on the pitot tube were not properly crimped by Garmin and pulled off when I went to connect them. Disappointing! Unfortunately I had already put in an Aircraft Spruce order this weekend. I’ll wait until I have more stuff to order and get some new connectors.

 

Reinstalled the aileron push tube and torqued the fasteners.

 

Reinstalled the flaps.

Wired the right wing for the nav, strobe, and landing lights. Also ran the wires for the autopilot servo.

 

In the left wing I ran the wiring for the nav, strobe, and landing lights. I also ran the wiring for the ADAHRS and the plastic line for the pitot tube. Decided to drill a couple of extra routing hole in order to mount the pitot tube outboard of the aileron bellcrank in order to avoid interference with the aileron push tube. I omitted the wire for the stall warning system since I didn’t install it in the leading edge. The Garmin system has an AOA sensor as part of the pitot system. So no need.
