coppercity Posted May 22, 2012 Report Share Posted May 22, 2012 We all enjoy our days of flying, but sometimes skimp on the cleaning up afterwords. Although we may not have to do it after every flight, it is a good idea to clean up your investment now and then. Going over the entire airframe with some soft cloths and some Composiclean spray wax is a great way to not only keep things clean but allow you to inspect the airframe for any signs of small problems before they become bigger problems. I know its not fun to crawl under the belly and clean, but it can tell you a lot about how your engine is doing. Is it leaking any fluids on the belly, how is the exhuast staining (normal, dark). Are the airframe drain holes clear, have you hit the ventral fin on the ground, or knocked a wheel pant loose. How about your placards, are they peeled off, legible, missing. These are things we may overlook during preflight but when you are focused on cleaning these areas to shiny perfection you notice things. Just something to keep in mind...Take care of your plane and it will take care of you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
