Has anyone drilled a hole in the forward wall of the right side gear tower in line with the firewall hole shown in OP-35 to route the power wire from the firewall-mounted battery into the avionics bay? Seems like the most direct route-straight aft under the F870B stiffener, into the gear tower, then up through the upper tower sidewall hole. I hesitate to drill additional holes in the gear towers, but the existing one at the base of the tower and also in bulkhead F866 aren’t ideally located for this purpose. I’m planning to use a VP-X for power distribution, so would probably only need to run a single #8 or #10 gauge wire rather than a bundle. Would still want a hole large enough to take extra wires if necessary. Other options? Photos would be greatly appreciated. I have looked at installing the battery in the baggage box well, but adding a mount to a QB fuselage seems like an unnecessary complication.
