some parts came in for it - I worked on my gas powered air brush compressor until I ran into needing parts... but had a few minutes to get a bit further

the short story - I have friends who transport medical personnel for free to the Bolivian highlands where they provide free medical help and air ambulance services to the people who live at the top of the world. They need to lower the weight of their equipment, and right now that's a 20lb air brush compressor and a 50 lb generator... this is 15 lbs. They asked for help, and I guess I was it (bottom of the barrel if you ask me)....
back to CC (Corvette Content).

some parts. Ordered 2 lenses, got 1

and fixed this... oops

in the spirit of breaking warranties....
I took this apart to see how hard it was going to be to limit its travel.edited Initially I was going to put an external switch... no need, just need to shorten a bit inside... but more on that later
​​​​​​​

this should give you an idea of why less weight is important

that strip is at 13,000 feet.... terrifying. I have friends in the STOL community, all of them speak with admiration at where he flies.... I have a video that I can't share but it's where it nearly ends his career on a takeoff. We joke that our guardian angels are never bored.

continuation of breaking the warranty


clever - now to figure out how to shorten the push
and my most favoritest job ever... not

and finish work on the panel (cover the holes)

it would have been nice if this set of instructions had been included.. ah well, fortunately it's really expensive and they use FedUp
