Short Description:  Exhaust Pipe Installed

Finally got a momentary break from the cold and headed out to the hangar (rain and flooding - but not cold at least!). Last session (27 January), I stopped by a welder's shop on the way home from the airport and the owner was nice enough to weld 2 spring clips onto my exhaust pipe while I waited (Shout-out to Schebish Bros Automotive in Manassas). Since that time, the pipe's been sitting in the garage.

Today, I returned to the hanger and within 5 minutes I had the exhaust pipe installed. The remaining time I spent reinstalling the cowling to make sure I would be able to do so without having to remove the exhaust pipe. Luckily I can otherwise it would be a nearly impossible task to install the pipe with the lower cowl already in place.

Since I was installing the cowling, I decided to install the front top skin (covers the avionics bay from firewall to instrument panel) so I made sure all the avionics were good to go. This was the first time I had installed the cover since installing the canopy. There are some tight fits and a lot of jockeying required to bend the piece into place, but it can be done.
