This is one striking M:  Beautiful paint, clean interior, and an absolutely stunning IO-520 installation.  But, the feet were being neglected.  Time for a trip to AVSTAR for a pedicure.

The landing gear was removed.  During disassembly, measurements were taken to assist with reassembly.

Much cleaning of parts ensued!  After cleaning, full inspection was made.  Unfortunately a few parts needed replacing.  Everything was collected and sent out for epoxy-primer and polyurethane top-coating.
