Not the Don Henley Eagles version … but an evening in the hangar .. sun long down … and a few things to do …
expect to get one , maybe two done … but … to come away with ALL done … great 😊
Now the permit is done … time to clean, tidy and get this little niggly things worked on …
2 more mini screen bolts to drill out and fit … Done
2nd inspection ring under port lower wing needs the proper ‘layered’ inspection sandwich of material with plastic ring in between… the existing hole is one of two in a section between root and first rib. So patching over, with an oversized panel may not easily take … and leave the rest of the panel … some 50cm x 60cm slack
The freshly cut ring, pre glued took really well the the fresh glue around the outer ring of the old inspection hole. As it was so cold in the barn the heat soon dissipated meaning I could lightly shrink it … beautifully tight .. so ready for the next layer of glue to be applied ready to seal in the inspection ring.
Then, my ongoing intermittent click in the radio … whilst working on he engine reinstall, I realised I had BOTH mag leads running almost parallel to 3 dedicated direct earth leads (secured to the engine block) .. one of which is probably the dedicated earth for the Trig radio and Transponder
The slight irony … is that retracing these mag leads … they end up running down an engine mount tube and then end up going vertically up the bulkhead and into a dedicated blue loom … So when I installed I obviously wanted these to stand out and BE separate.
It may makes things better … now diverse routed … but good to continue neatening the general wiring and routing
