    Marc Ingegno Brake Parts

    I have 400 hours on the Goldfren pads and don’t plan on changing them anytime soon. CT_MATT & I don’t have problems with the Marc brakes.

    Blue LED

    Does anyone have a source for the blue LED bulbs that light up the site tubes?

    Hey Russ, 

    This is Tip Ruffner from Indiana, PA. I noticed that you had your LS advertised and now it must have sold. I would like to sell mine. It has 900 hours on it. What should I expect to sell mine for? It’s in great shape and I would like to buy a newer one. 

    Do you have the Zenith that you built?

    Hope all is well!

    E-scooter for the last mile

    I looked at one at Sam’s last week for $150.

    Fuel caps

    If you cover the LS caps with bolus tape, it will blister where the gas is weeping.
  6. My son & I flew into Chandelle (0N4) which is 3 1/2 miles from Dover Speedway. From there, we rode Razor scooters to the track & back. The scooters fold up & fit easily in my LS.

    Prop Issue -- Cosmetic or Serious?

    It’s not my plane, but one that I saw. Tom’s right. What most people call the back is actually the “face”. The side you see from the cockpit.

    Prop Issue -- Cosmetic or Serious?

    I was surprised at how bad the paint was chipped up on the back side of a Sensenich with 150 hours. 2011 CTLS. The Nueforms always look like new.

    Kennel Storage?

    I had questioned the forum several years ago about transporting a kitten for my daughter. The consensus then was that it would probably be too loud for pets.

    iFly 740b Install

    Andy, could you post a picture of the bare block? How does the original block keep tension on the rods so that they don’t retract?

    iFly 740b Install

    I like this location but I don’t know how the knobs are supported. It looks like the tab that was part of the original mushroom is moved, but it would need to be supported really well in the new location. I think that this was Scrapman1959’s first CTLS.

    Favorite weather app for planning?

    I uses this one a lot http://www.usairnet.com/cgi-bin/launch/code.cgi?Submit=Go&sta=KIDI&state=PA

    I shorted out my landing light and it tripped its breaker. The fault also destroyed my intercom without tripping its breaker. My ruined intercom acted like yours.

    New panel insert

    I can’t find it at IKEA in the US. Maybe in Europe?
