Today I installed the wheel fairings, it took a bit longer than expected as I had to widen the gap between the tire and the fairing.
I still have to install the gear leg fairings before resuming flight testing. I hope to gain a few knots on the top speed.

Bad weather, so no flight. I did some small tasks by installing the fuel pump shroud, trying to find why the OAT is not working (maybe a faulty D-sub). I noticed that one nutplate under the right floor needs to be replaced. I finally begun installing the wheel fairings.

We are still wainting for the weather to improve to make the first flight. Withe Sabine we spent one hour at the hangar, mainly to fill up the fuel tanks as the airclub was open today. I still have no card for the automatic pump.
Sabine taxied in the plane for the first time, and after taht we noticed some oily residue on the front leg. We took the cowling of and there must have been some oil or fuel in the airbox. We will monitor that.
