  1. Strangely enough, my dad cant get factory parts for his 2005 Toyota Camry. But I be danged if those things dont still command a premium price on craigslist.
  2. Nice job! im a fan. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Sorry - was going to take it but found one from a friend.
  4. use outline.com and paste the link below -- reading right now. https://dailytimes.com/news/article_b5fd6b10-056c-11ea-a29f-830a66f49904.html
  5. What kind of total hours/ratings do you have?
  6. New to Texas -- never heard of it. Adding it to my list of places to visit. Thanks for sharing! If I wasnt at the AOPA FIRC this weekend I would definitely be attending their Beer, Planes, and BBQ Hangar Bash http://www.lonestarflight.org/hangarbash
  7. Some would say if it wasnt for the USA you would be speaking bloody german...(if were being honest)
  8. Very sad. Same airplane. Hard to believe this was just a year ago https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.palmbeachpost.com/news/20191102/wpb-doctor-in-stuart-air-show-crash-died-piloting-lsquohis-babyrsquo%3ftemplate=ampart
  9. What size camera are you looking to use? Have you considered using a STC’d payload pod for a 172?
  10. The pictures I took during the process I posted earlier in this thread. Anything your looking for specifically that you didn’t see? The plenum had some type of cracked sealant material around most of it that was hodgepodge. I just used aluminum tape to close the gaps and cracks (not pictured)
  11. Mine was a pain to replace, but not all that difficult. Mainly just frustrating. I had airflow before I started the project, but after getting into it and taping closed all the seams on the plenum, I now have huge airflow and it makes a big difference. If you ever decide to drop the headliner make sure you tap up those gaps. Makes the summer all that more bearable.
  12. It would be interesting to once and for all collect some real data on a shared spreadsheet that lists all the different categories for hull value, pilot experience, etc to get a sense of what members pay and what provider they are with. There's lots of forums one here that I have seen posts with spotty data, but never anything that's consolidated. Most people say something like "my insurance is only xxxx per month..." And that's it. Devil is in the details. I would volunteer to put this together if folks were interested.
  13. This just happened this weekend. Wife surprised me with a private flight with the crew of FIFI after the Wings Over Dallas airshow for my birthday. One of the most incredible experiences of my life. Crawling through the crew tube over the bomb bay to get to the rear guns was sombering. Can't image those guys trying to deliver payloads on target while getting peppered by flak and torn through by enemy fighters. Helped clean off the gallons of oil that leak from each engine after the flight as well.
