Thank you Doug for a great resource.

I think you are one of the first to apply for approval of a G3x Touch and a G5 back-up without any huff & puff. Have you had to provided any additional information to explain why LAA Eng should approve this configuration?

Default N573RM

Just got my 7A back from Glo at 52F. Very pleased with the job they did. Would highly recommend them to anyone in search of quality workmanship at an affordable price.

Now that it?s back I?m looking forward to knocking out the last 1/2 of the phase 1, then taking all the friends and family for some joy rides.

Thanks for the great source of knowledge VAF!
