Ya mine posts them too. I am never really bothered by them, especially since mine are always numbers. Let's put it this way, when I look at someones sweet a$$ post on their aircraft I never notice the numbers/title of the pic.

Jereme,

I am with you on this one! I am done with the darn fuel lines...almost. Missing one 819-6D fuel line sleeve! Can't believe it...all the same I am moving on to repair of large cut-outs in the first bulkhead behind the avionics panel then adding the hinges to the lower portions of the firewall etc...

Done. Really, with the fuel return lines and bulkhead fittings.

I plan on doing flow tests to see what kind of flow or volume loss I have with the 90 AN fittings v. the 90 Andair fittings.

A big thank you to Bruce Swayze for supplying me with an 819 AN-6D sleeve!
I was stuck and gave him a call and he had one! Looked to be from his test parts, all perfect and in a safe place. I will have to get him a replacement when Van's opens in a half hour.

His plane is almost done and it looks fantastic!

Might I suggest an aluminum plate with nut plates and screws in place of the piano hinges at the bottom of the lower cowl ? Lasts a lot longer than the hinges. Have had to repair mine a couple times before changing to the screws.

Well, yes that seems to be a grand idea. Unfortunately for me I have finished the lower hinges and will leave them and as necessary replace them if they fail. Your suggestion sounds like a winner!

Than you for the tip! I am always open to help.
