    My N numbers have been factory assigned. Apparently they got blocks of N numbers for different planes and production years. My old PA-12 was 3453M and I often see other -12s with similar numbers....

    Make you own as big as the tube compartments allow. My door is top hinged and I wish it was hinged on the forward vertical edge instead so it'd blow closed in flight. A neighbor waved me off a...

    Don’t forget to plan for a fuel pressure gauge, which means putting a sender unit in the fuel line after the mechanical pump. I didn’t do one initially and added it later. It would have been easier...

    Are you using their fuel filter? I didn’t and I wonder if I should. Fuel goes through a Steve’s gascolator before the high pressure pump so hopefully that’s good enough. I’ll add a pump on indicator...

    Don’t 135 and 121 regs require airplanes to weighed every 36 months? That’s not far off of what I’ve done with my planes.
