    I finally subscribed to your channel and watched some of the videos. Now my wife is giving me that “wtf are you laughing at at 10pm” look. Great stuff.

    The air freshener hanging from the ceiling is a nice touch.

    Tricked out with curb feelers was a brilliant touch.

    Hey, those curb feelers give me an idea. I'll bet if I mount them pointing downward then they'll help keep me from plopping down in the flare.

    ......Careful - an air freshener is reasonable suspicion grounds for a drug search in South Carolina.

    You don't think she pushed a castering nosewheel around the A&P? Those carts have two castering nosewheels. She probably knows what an A&P is too.

    Can you help me pimp the 414? Maybe put curb feelers on the tip tanks?

    You need to get a couple of those fancy headlight lashes for the landing lights.
