1.6 hrs
Installed the cylinder head and exhaust gas temp sensors. Got the EGT's installed at about 2" dowstream, but #1 had to be on a bend. The EGT probes fit very tightly in the 1/8" hole, and have to be pulled in by tightening the clamp. I think I understand why they don't leak.

Then removed the top skin in prep for doing the instrument panel. Also removed the heater cable, since I'm going to use another one instead. Also removed the canopy tracks, since they need a bit more work.

Went flying today, the price on the DA20 came down just in time! Got in 1 passable landing, and 3 greasers. Very happy with the landings, need to be a bit more in control on take offs.
