This is on the inside of the stowage door, from Stelio Frati. I forgot to mention that. It says "compliment for very nice aeroplane S Frati".

We just completed the annual, and complied with an AD that calendered out the prop hub. Kyle (Northern Air) said that as an "experimental" compliance is voluntary, but I didn't think that would be wise, so a new hub was installed. The old one looked fine.

This picture shows the engine compartment as it looked a couple days ago, and reminded me that I powder-coated the mounts and baffles, as well as the instrument panel, and stick controls that include F-15 grips.
