Smoke stayed in
Very basic power up after rewiring about 1/3 of the electrical system for clarity, my anal retentiveness, to make it field repairable, and to learn what I did not by contracting it out. The gent that did the harness did a beautiful job, but I was incredibly remiss by not being more involved, I had no idea how to repair it, and an old USN Chief who put in 20+ years wiring everything from props-jets grilled me mercilessly over that until I took it all apart, relabeled everything, replaced most of the white wires with red or black, added quick-release connectors where possible, and could draw the schematics of any system for him on demand.
Yes, the wiring needs some tightening up, and not everything is hooked up yet. I do have a couple "funnies" I need to track down, but they're not critical and can wait until I get home in a couple weeks.
Thanks to everyone here for letting a "Seagull" tap your brain trust for knowledge.
