I'm in the process of installing a radio, intercom, and battery. What wire types do people commonly use? MIL-W-22759/16? This is in an open cockpit aircraft, and wiring will be minimal, so I'm not concerned with toxic smoke/fumes (If my airplane is on fire, I've got more immediate problems...like the wings disappearing). I would just order some wire from Aircraft Spruce, but I have no idea what the sheath is like. I'd like something with a really tough, harder sheath, not the softer sheath that standard hook-up wire has. Also, does anyone make or use wire with a braided sheath anymore? I think this would look better in my plane. I've seen some that seem to be a plastic sheath with a cloth braid. What is the general consensus on the durability & quality of this wire type, and is it even available today?
