Good point Tony, I am up to 230 hours now but I really liked the random inspection capability. We have had so many SBs that require lower cowl removal for inspection, I miss the easy access. Prop removal is a good option!

Good suggestion David, I will look into that. Just buying a little more 'wiggle-room' would make a big difference!
