And I forgot to mentioned that I found another Seneca I in flying conditions down here. LV-LII ... nice paint job, and also with 3 windows per side as -LCW and -LIL.

Hi Diego, You and your crew are making great progress. And seem to be doing a very thorough job of it. I think you'll enjoy your Seneca for a long time when it's all back together and flying.
One caution; make sure you follow the engine overhauler's instructions for operation during the first few hours after re installation. Doing that first start and first few hours of operation correctly will pay long term dividends.
Let me know if you need more guidance on this issue.
Best,
Steve

Hola Steve, thanks for the feedback. Yes, indeed more work than I expected to do :blink: but somehow in the back of my mind I kind of thought some surprises might come up! Hopefully everything will work well, but I am planning for some things to present during the first hours.

I would love to learn more about how to run the engines those first hours, would you please share that information with me?

And one more question: One of the landing lights is burnt, so I am thinking about replacing both for these LED:

Any reference on those?
Thanks,
Diego

I have attached an article I wrote on first starts when I worked for Kitplanes magazine.
I didn't see where those LED lights are approved for installation.
Let me do some more research on approved LED lights and get back to you.

Quick update ... landing gear has been re-installed after a full overhaul & painting (including the wheel wells). Spare parts (engine and hardware fuselage) on their way from MIA. Aiming at starting up those engines before the end of June.

Will keep you posted.

That's great news.
You and your crew of technicians are making short work of refurbishing your Seneca!
Keep us posted.
