3 hours left!

Spent the morning attaching this little mini-fairing to the nosewheel. I had to cut it down quite a bit so that it wouldn't get knocked off when the nosewheel pivots, but it turns out to be worth it: I think I gained at least 3 knots from this little guy. And it's not even sanded down yet, and I think I can extend that little tab at the top a little higher as well.

I wasn't planning on going out to the hazy central valley today, but I ended up doing it to get away from all this traffic. It got worse after I took this picture...

Not even at 75% power, but getting closer to Van's published 75% cruise at 162 knots (showing 157 knots here, I think I got it up to 158-9 at 75%)
