  1. Landing/Taxi light lens install

    Long story short, replaced my landing and taxi lights w/ LED. Got ahead of myself removing the lens cover. It dropped on the hangar floor and broke. My new cover arrived today w/out pre-drilled holes. Any suggestions on marking and drilling holes to match with the current holes on the wing and prevent cracking the new lens?

    Thanks!

  2. Elevator trim

    My 1950 Pacer's Elevator trim cable came out of the pulley aft of the baggage compartment and started to fray the cable. I have the parts to convert to a double sheave pulley, but am missing the mounting bracket for the additional pulley at the jack screw. I did a search and found some info, but the pictures in the posts did not show. Any ideas on how to mount the pulley with out welding would be greatly appreciated!Click image for larger version.

  3. Cockpit Light

    Been spring cleaning the aircraft and realized my post lights aren't doing a lot for me. Over my left shoulder I have a C4-A cockpit light that hasn't been the most useful. On the right side is the stock light post. I went with Tom Andersons LED conversion kit. It comes with two lights. Any ideas on what it takes to replace and remove the C4-A light so that I can mount the conversion kit?

  5. Ultimate Cargo Pod

    What would be the ultimate cargo pod that you could think of? What don't you like about the pods that are out there, and what do you like. If you could have any pod that you wanted what would it be? What would be best in service, cost, resale, performance, availability, warranty, accessories, form, fit, function, and etc.?
