  1. Door Seals again

    Yup, the 3M wheel with PPG Ditzo is was what i used, i had 50 years of gunk on mine, some places more than 1/8" thick. Key is to get it clean and wipe it again to get the oils from your hands off with the Ditzo. Hit it at annual with some spray silicone. I have had no issues since i replaced almost 2 years ago. A bag of clothespins to hold it in place every few inches while applying helps.

  3. Exhaust crack at annual

    I did get it out without taking the lower cowl off. Can't recall what order, but believe I had to remove the exhaust risers too. I sent it all in, and they replaced it all. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. I'd totally watch that. Only thing I watch now is Pickers and Paw Patrol. I know a few producers, but TV and Film is not their medium. Surely somebody, somewhere has to be pitching this.
  5. I've replaced the entire exhaust without pulling the entire bottom cowl. You can get the shroud off too. I got the scars to prove it.
  6. Ya, I am supposed to be at KIXD next Saturday if this weekend didn't work, and then it's time for annual. Dream - you should check out Barnstormers at KOFK too. Haven't been there since they reopened, but was always fun and great airport to fly into. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  7. I'd be interested in coming down, but would be in afternoon as the boys have an Easter egg hunt in the am. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. Fast is relative

    GAMI or stock. I've been able to get my stock injectors to run pretty smooth to 40 lop, at about 9ish gph. When I try it w/ram air open it gets rough below 15 lop. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Ah, I'm having flashbacks of Le Corbusier from architecture class! Wonder if Al Mooney applied it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  11. Fly Q

    I have the FlyQ lifetime, Steve P and Seattle Avonics are going to be around for a while. There openness in both protocol and customer service is what will keep this happening. I agree with others that it really comes down to what you are used to, but it really gets my goat that Garmin and Stratus lock everybody else out just to protect their efb subscriptions.

  13. Landing without landing light

    I think it is a huge improvement over the GE, Seems to have a better wash on the sides and I like that LED 5K white light. Seems to light up the reflective paint of the runway better. I thought about getting the "non pma'd" 8 degree whelen, but I dont like to put undue pressure on my AP. And yes I wired it wrong the first time, but fortunately I didn't put it all back together before I tested it.
  14. Landing without landing light

    I've done no light landings on my night XC in training. I happened to check the light before CFI and I took off and noticed light was out. He was like - can we go?, i said legally yes, then asked him if he was comfortable with it and he said yes and it would be a good learning experience. Glad i did it. Found out my landing light was burned out over Chicago on my way to Coldwater, MI. Flying a 3hr leg into an unfamiliar airport with the family on board. Made the wife a little nervous, but really no issue. Follow the PAPI down. Keep it in the middle of the lights and over the green threshold lights. Gently sink into the black hole keeping the nose up. A squeaker. Wife said that was one of the best landings I've done. Now the hard part, getting to an unfamiliar ramp at an airport with no blue taxi lights! Just cell phone flash and a little flashlight hanging out the door and window. That was the hard part. When I got home had LANCECASPER order me up a Parmetheus Plus from ACS. Now the things I see during my early morning "laps" scare me. Literally a standoff on the taxi way with a coyote (thought it was the aiport dog at first). I'm sure with havest that the deer will be thick right now too. But nice to be able to just keep the light on all the time.
