Annual Inspection (IV)

As of this morning Mike the IA has finished everything except the nose gear. Not much in the way of bad news today:
  • The ELT battery is due for replacement. I need to make a separate post on my thinking about the ELT.
  • There is some corrosion starting on the belly behind the battery drain; needs to be cleaned up, alodyned and touch-up painted -- but maybe not this week.
  • The pilot's side seat rails have worn to the point where the applicable AD requires that they be inspected at 100 hour intervals rather than annually. No further action at this time.
The expander boot for the carb inlet air duct is due in today; we are still working on the assumption that the airplane will be done and available Friday (tomorrow!) afternoon.
