Jenne, Mike and I installed all of the post holders we could today including: REFL11, REFL33, REFL55, AS55, MCRef, POX11 and POP55.  We did not install AS110, POY or REFL165 because there are interferences that will require moving stuff around. We also did not mount POP22 because it is a peely wally ThorLabs PD that will be replaced by a strong, straight and right thinking LIGO PD in the fullness of time.  We did move it out of the way however which is no more than it deserves. Next step this afternoon Mike and I will install all of the telescopes and launching hardware.  Then with the help of Steve we will begin routing the fibers.  The 1x16 splitter module will be here by next Monday, the laser by the following Friday and then we will light up the fibers. 

 I'm proposing split loom tubing that would run in the cable tray  to protect the fibers  inside of it.  This tubing diameter in the cable tray can be 1.5-2"  and out of the tray 0.75"
