Default Must have

I bought a -9A and flew it for a few years before installing the supertracks. Should have done it sooner. It makes a huge (HUGE) difference in the ease of loading and unloading the baggage area. And as someone else has pointed out, passengers no longer try to sit on the canopy edge.

It looked like a bit of a pain to install as a retrofit, and I'm a klutz, so I had my A&P do it during my condition inspection. He said it wasn't THAT bad, although he did have to call out his extra-small helper to get into the rear fuselage.

Cost/benefit wise, it's easily the best thing I've added to my -9A.

Anyone have comments? Must have? Nice to Have?

Installation difficulty as a retrofit?

Better to install during initial construction?
