Hi Christopher, Did you use Lemke seats?

I hope you have good weather to make it to Mexico - I will be driving there - arriving on Friday morning.

Best Regards,  Larry Zepp, Zodiac 650B N22LZ

Oh understand the break in period. I also changed to steel bungee. With the heavy lycoming and a grass field seemed like the thing to do. No hurry to change on my 701...much lighter on the nose with the Rotax

The B&C alternator unit works fine. Their lightweight starter has been great too. Over 500 hrs on both, no problems.
