Default RE: Hangar 9 30cc P-47 Build Thread

So with the mini bulkheads opened up to accept the wires we installed teh retract units. These drop right in as the model is designed to fit these retracts. Simple step. 4 bolts with some threadlock and a 7/64 ball driver for the 6-32 bolts and the unit was installed.

pic #1 shows the unit bolted into the wing.
Pic #2 shows the wire harness being routed through the mini bulkheads keeping it out of the way.
Pic #3 shows the harness being directed out of the wing. A 3 inch extension was used to extend the harness out side of the wing panel. You will note the heat shrink tubing over the harness to ensure it won't come apart at any time during operation.
