1. Annual Inspection

Left landing gear repair and new gear fairing installed
5. Wheel pants repaired and painted
6. New hooker harness'
8. FAA conformity Inspection

10. New vinyl "N" numbers
Lot's of minor repairs
12. Assembly and rigging
13. Test flying by Steve Wolf
The left landing gear drag tube had a nice sized dent on the bottom. AC43.13 provided a repair scheme and so we warmed
up the tube and straightend it as much as possible. Afterwards I fabricated a diamond patch per AC43.13 recommendations
and Steve Tig'd it in place. It came out looking real nice. I cleaned it all up, chromated it and painted it Tennesse
Red to match the rest of the airplane. I installed a new faring on the gear leg as well.
Both wheel pants had damage to the bottoms and also holes in the aft end's. We sanded these down, fixed the composite, filled
and faired with micro and then painted to match.
