Today’s odd job: Install new rear spinner backing plate.
Took longer than quoted because of the 180 hp upgrade and different prop. The guide pins were not properly lined up and the bolt holes had to be enlarged for 1/2 bolts.

There is a new Airworthiness Directive out regarding incorrect fuel selector placards on all PA-28 series aircraft. 2018-02-05 is a one time AD that will require verifying the placards are correct and if not, replacing the placards. This will be an easy AD to accomplish and will allow for an owner or pilot to perform the verification in accordance with Service Bulletin 1309.

We are glad to help any one out with complying with this AD. Fly in for lunch and leave legal! This AD takes effect Feb 7th! Shops might book up quick doing these! The FAA expects 17,000 types are affected!
