Tonight I finished putting the electrons back in 373Y.  The new electric setup features new connections at the battery (goodbye cheap radio shack connectors!) plus entirely replacing the rats nest behind the panel with a slightly more sane setup.  Everything is hooked up and powers up nicely when the ship is connected to the battery.  The LX 16 vario makes a nice steady tone.  The only thing left is to solder the voltmeter into the system but that needs to be done last.

Tomorrow I'll probably take everything out of the panel and get it varnished.  There are a few odd screws that I need to find some extras of so that everything is completely attached, plus I can work on finishing up the plumbing.

3Y passed its condition inspection also tonight with no issues so this weekend with any luck we'll fly!
