Karl, the only time I’ve ever seen anything above zero on my CO detector in the airplane was a 1 at startup in a cold day with the heat on. I have it hanging on the microphone bracket just under the center of the panel. I know the unit works because I tested it on my car exhaust on a cold start. It went up to about 25 or 30 until the catalytic converter warmed up, then quickly back into the single digits.

Some of John Pugliese’s brake fairings and SS brake lines.

Now if I can just find some wheelpant mounting plates in good condition.

Ole Pokey (172TD/170C) got new black steel brake discs; new brake pads; new ss brake lines; and new caliper "O" ring gaskets.
George, had to get these new brakes to stop this GREEN plane :mrgreen:

Continually rolling backwards on the ramp, I suppose...

Those nice chocks will also help. :twisted:

ForeFlight has made a donation to our convention auction several times and this year it was the Sentry ADSB receiver. I was bidding trying to get it to bring somewhere close to retail and wound up the last tightwad with his hand in the air :lol: and after using it on the way home glad I have it. I had a Stratux to use on the way up and was impressed with what it did, just didn’t like the box and antennae sticking up from the dash. GPS accuracy went from 5-10 meters with just the ipad to 3 with the Stratux and 1 with the Sentry. The Sentry is about the size of a cigarette package with an internal battery and internal antennas, so not nearly as intrusive in the cabin. I mounted it just in front of the front doorpost so it was really almost out of sight.
