No disrespect Racer 997, but those bends in the wire to pull it tight may fly in the CMRA inspection, but that is not the correct way to safety wire - the wire should be tight between attach points.

I wouldn't wire the prop on an airplane this way, but then again we're not the FAA. Ideally I'd like wire to pulling tight without a bend, and that's recommended in the rule book as you have probably noticed, but 75% of the people who come through tech have the most -awful looking wire jobs you're ever seen; some are merely loops of wire passed from one fastener to another with no twisting. I'll fail the worst ones, but failing all off them is hard to do on race day. My recommendation is that they wire it correctly, per thee rule book, but a bend in the middle to take up slack is better than nothing at all.

Caliper bolts -

What needs safety wired? What wire gauge?

I'd love to come see some of your wiring. I've always been fascinated by how skillful a good airplane mechanic is with safety wiring.

I'm usually just too lazy to do it the right way, but I'd bet some of these pro's can show me the way to get it done faster and do a better job too

Nice examples Linz
