    J-kid, I’m building one and I had the same question. The PA 14 has a max gross of 1850 while the Wag 2+2 says 2200. I spent a lot of time trying to account for the difference but couldn’t pin it...

    Too true. You'd think I'd learn by now. I have three prized polar Tec style jackets with melted spots and holes in them from grinding, not welding.

    I remember forgetting that once, when I thought I'd just do a little quick grinding. Put on face shield and hearing protection and hit the piece...

    I don’t know what was going on back in 1946, but mine was issued NC777QB.

    The turtle deck channels are straight with angles, right? I'd take a piece of channel, cut a notch at the bend corners and then bent them to the proper angle and tack welded them.

    That may be why my policy, which is only a year and a half old, has a "no racing or practicing for races" exclusion while MTV's older policy does not. Same company.

    Long ago I was looking at a Citabria to buy. The owner took me up and we flew around some--putting it through a few paces.

    He came back to the airport and lined up for the grass runway, which was...
