I think you'd be defeating the purpose of the wing by doing that.I do think adding a strip to the leading edge however IS possible...if you have the right abilities and tools.The strips are virtually the same width as the leading edge.And they're 'covered' with a radial shape plastic covering molded in.You would however need to be able to cut a hole in the wing to run the wiring down into the inner cowl plug.THIS would be VERY hard to do.Unless of course you just ran the wiring under the wing concealed.Don't think that would look very appealing.
If the wing was full carbon fiber,it would be dicey to start cutting that leading edge to fit a strip on there.A pro could probably do it though.There are some strips that have the exiting wiring at a 90 degree angle,so they can be mounted on something flat,and the wiring is not 'protruding' out the end.
Now,if the wing was actual CF,it would probably be hollow inside,so the wiring(using that 90 degree wiring configuration)would work very well to run the wiring down through the attachment point and to the plug.As expensive as full CF wings are...you'd need to get it right basically the first shot.This considering you're doing it yourself that is.It is totally doable.
I thought about doing this also,my wings are nylon(solid),so I couldn't open a hole to run the wing into.
