    Show us some pics when your done.

    By the way, I was at KIYK Sunday with a group doing a bit of desert flying as part of the Kern Valley Fly In.

    Totally spaced it but now I understand why the tri pacer tied down there looked familiar!

    I spent last Sunday on the western side of the Sierras. I was course marshaling for the 24hrs of Lemons �� at Button Terrible. Sorry I missed you. Were you hanging out with Rick Lach?

    Ive still got a bit to go. But here’s what I got accomplished today.

    I wanted to ensure that there’s no interference with the controls.

    Yeah it was neat to learn that Rick is the guy who builds the engine mounts for Eddie Trimmer's 180 hp ATC. Got to tour his shop and talk technical, learned lots.

    He actually put me in touch with the former owner of my Tri-Pacer, then gave me an annual. He’s a great guy.

    I finished laying the carpet all the way back into the baggage area, and have started tearing down and refoaming and covering the seats, I started with the rear bottom cushion to try out my ideas. It’s going so well that I’m going to start on the front seats next. I found the blue plaid in the upholstery bargain bin. It’s a heavy cotton and good for 15k double rubs... the blue vinyl is the same as I used for the column boot, I just purchased more. This is really my first time trying my skills on seat covers. More pictures to come....
