Well, it’s that time again. Time for the annual condition inspection! The good news is that there was nothing to fix this year. Just run the compression tests, open all the access panels, lube the pivots and put it back together and return to service. The only new change I made, was to remove the zip tie seat mounting and replace it with a screw mount from the seat pan to the tube structure behind the seat. This will make it easy to get behind the seat for maintenance and inspections without always having to cutoff the zip ties and then replace them with new ones. I also extended the mounting tabs a bit with some fiberglass and carbon to get more material on the bolt locations where the seat screws to the floor boards. The original installation was cut too close to the hole edges and broke out over the years.
