Day 53 - January 26, 2013

After six hours of work on the landing gear service bulletin for the TeenFlight 1 airplane, we got the gear back on and all the bolts torqued down.

On the TeenFlight 2 airplane we continued to route the engine control cables.  They are almost ready to be attached to the carburetors. 

The next step in the lower cowling process was to apply an aluminum heat shield to the inside of the lower cowling half in the places that come close to the hot parts of the engine.  After pressing down the sticky-back of the heatshield to the fiberglass we spread a coat of resin along the edges of the shield to make sure they do not peel up.

We also routed the oil hoses.  That plumbing is almost done except for one hose.
