I intend to put mine low on the forward face of the gear bulkhead. The 
space between the gear bulkhead and the fishtail on the end of the keel 
in the elite is dead space anyway. If I can do so, I plan to run the 
ribbon cable up the keel, However, I already have the brake lines and all 
of the antenna leads in there and it is getting rather crowded. The 
number of things that can be safely secured any from all of the moving 
parts is limited. My other idea for the ribbon is to simply put it on the 
floor under the carpet next to the keel. It wouldn't show at all.
