Thanks, John Boy!

Went over to Wayne's house to visit and get ideas about various items. He had a Andair gascolator that I will buy from him. He has a gorgeous new IO-390 and doesn't need the gascolator. He also lent a .3105 reamer for drilling the landing gear weldments. Unfortunately, I snapped it, so I get to buy a new one.

Start drilling main gear and weldments to .311.
