Here is another repair progress photo of c/n 2512 which is nearing completion.
Take note of the interesting new clean looking more aerodynamic Fiberglas lower
cowling that was talked about in the recent post on c/n 627. The cabin air and heat
inlets are now NACA style inlets and the landing/taxi Lts are flush mounted LEDS.

As much drag as the Helio has, in my opinion every little bit of aerodynamic
cleanup helps, if not in speed, probably in long term fuel burn economy, also
in my opinion it generally just looks better.

I wonder which wings Ben will use maybe he will take them back off of c/n 627
or maybe he has, I would think he would want the 60 gal wings back on 2512
and 120 gal wings on c/n 627 a H-395.

I opened the photo above in the photo quue.
