    FWIW Avemco insures projects. You can adjust the value as the project grows and you gather parts and components. Very reasonable.

    I'm sure it pulls just like my IO-400 did and like my Thunderbolt 390 will. ;) I'm familiar with the motor and the weight. I'll be interested to learn more about how they manage the CG.

    How's that plane balancing out for CG? Are they adding tail ballast? That's a lot of motor sitting on the nose of what started out as a 100hp Cub.

    Insurers are very sensitive to over insuring and will question the stated value if it seems high. For obvious reasons!

    Same at my TX shop. Big fans help until you figure out you're standing in a convection oven. We put in overhead doors at both ends. Changing the air rather than moving the air seems to help.

    That’s plausible. My baggage door collects water in the rain. If I open it it drains in a steady stream. If I don’t open it first and fly it? No water in the door when I land.

    How much water drained?

    Is the headliner wet? Probably not since the carpet isn't wet. That means the top cabin probably isn't the source. Wing roots, cabin vents, windscreen lower strip, etc all...

    In a 180 that flies at an average weight above 2500#? 12 psi in 29s works great. You may go down to 10 but odds are you’ll never need less than that. If you run at 3000# you’ll be adding air. It...

    Nope, but we'd all use overhead hoists until they aren't available. Not available describes 99.9% of my airplane life. In this case Eddie already bought hydraulic bottles.
