5-07 Fairchild almost ready to go.

Started out the day by having Glenn set the valves. Then I checked that everything was the way I wanted it and put on the bottom of the cam galley...again. Every year I have to take this thing apart. Every year I say it's the last time. I guess I like the airplane too much.
The bottom picture shows how the airplane looked when I left. I'm about an hour away from starting her up. Still have to hook up the battery, put the tools away and sweep the floor. This time I put Kitty Litter down so I didn't have the usual oil slick under my feet. If it starts and runs fine, we'll finish the annual tomorrow and then I'll get to fly her for the first time since August 1st of last year.
