Engines about ready

Say what you will about TCM, so far for me they have been great to work with.  They've been accessible via email which for me is very key.  Got this note today:

Hello Adam.

Your factory engines should be complete and ready to ship within the next 3 to 4 business days... probably by this Friday or so. Of course, I'll contact you as soon as they're ready.

Sounds good to me, everything seems to be coming together.  Hopefully the shipping will be expeditious.  I still have to get my elevator up to Chico.  I thought I'd just hop in one of the NRI club planes and shuttle it up there, but I didn't really realize how big the dang thing is.  The left elevator is a hair under 6 ft long and it's 2 ft wide.  I don't think it will fit in a 182.  I'm going to beg my friend Jerry to see if he can shuttle me up there in his 421.

One other item I'm going to see if I can take care of while the plane is down is the wing strobe fences.  Here you can see that sometime in the past they were cracked and repaired quite sloppily, so I want to get them fixed.
