The next chapter in the #RV-7 baffles is the installation of the snorkel. This is the fiberglass piece that directs the air from the filter in front of cylinder #2 to the Airflow Performance AFP 200 throttle body. This fiberglass duct is designed to fit the smaller Bendix throttle body, so we'll need to perform a little surgery. Nothing beats cutting a $300 part into pieces! :(

We woke up to a big bang this morning. Lightning struck our neighbor's tree across the street. The splinters made quite a mess. A significant chuck struck our garage about 120' away. Impressive, but no damage. #panoramic

Our year in review, auto-generated by Google robots. It does a pretty good job of representing our year -- dogs, flowers and airplanes.

Work on the #RV-7 baffling continues at a snail's pace. Here I've fit the optional oil cooler shutter to the baffling. It will help regulate the oil temp via a push-pull cable in the cockpit. Because I mounted the oil cooler as high as possible, the original shutter arm was going to be too close to the cowling. I made a new arm to address this. I think it will work well.
