Hey, I'm a WIXer too :wink: Those gun mounts were a huge pain the a$$, I didn't get the last one broken apart until 2am after half a bottle of PB and lots of persuasion with a mallet! They're getting bead blasted tomorrow, and painted over the next couple days. I'm putting them back in Sunday afternoon if ya wanna stop by, I could use some help! Someone (hint hint) will have to get up on the ladder and screw the mount assy's in from the outside! :lol: You shoulda been there today Steve, ya coulda got some good pics of the engine coming off!

Woohoo! #3 engine is back on the plane! We are still sorting out the wiring, but so far we haven't had any surprises as we selectively put power back on the various systems. (and no smoke has escaped from the wires :) )

Sorry Trevor

I did not know that.
Liberty Belle pilots John Hess and Bob Hill are also WIXers, John is actually WIXer-BuzzBy and Bob is B25PBYGUY but they have not posted in a while-we need to get them back here!
