Merry Christmas, everyone! I thought I'd post this excellent picture of N12055 that Lee & Jamie Walton took at Kentucky Dam (Thanks!). Happy New Year, and I wish everyone 100% safe flights in 2020!

Here's my list of Winter / Spring projects. Lots to do...
* (DONE) Move vertical card compass to 6-pack
* (DONE) Install G-meter
* Change the oil and send it off for analysis
* Install new oil plug with push-to-drain
* Rewire Yaesu radio power wire
* Straighten vertical Yaesu panel mount
* Re-flash the Stratux microSD card (because it stopped working)
* Change center console attachment points for easier removal
* Replace Oil Temp instrument and/or Probe
* Fix Cylinder Head Temp instrument
* Install uAvionix ADS-B out system - either Echo or Tail Beacon
* Install flexible braided fuel line from tank to firewall
* Get remote for video camera because it's a pain to operate and is distracting
* Fix camera / intercom cable to allow audio recording of intercom
* Get transponder checked after uAvionix installed
* Re-torque prop bolts (original), look for wear, replace if necessary
* Adjust left main toe-out .5 degrees inboard
* Replace original ELT with modern ELT and panel remote
* Install stick grip with PTT and trim switch
* Move trim operation from center tunnel to stick grip trim switch
* Move flap switch from panel to center tunnel
* Install control stick boots
* Install baggage compartment panels
* Install nut plates on shelf behind seats to make it easier to install/remove Stratux
* Install Odyssey-compatible battery charging cables w/ battery post eyelets

Me too, Rich! I will work to get these projects listed above done by mid-March so N12055 can come to meet his Western brothers :).
