LookingForCruiser is on a distinguished road
I bought some of the flat conduit, but of course didn't have the right screw bits to get the headliner down (little square ones screw holes...).

In any case the foam backing for the headliner is a little less than a quarter inch thick, so that conduit is too thick, it would make a huge bulge under the headliner. I only have 5 16-gauge wires (hooray for LED lighting) to run to the mast, so I'll probably just find something very thin and flat to hold them in place every 18" and epoxy that to the ceiling.

Not very forward looking, but it'll be a few years before I'm in a position to be buying fancy broadband radar or whatever the latest thingamajig is...
