    A couple of minor additions to the 727

    I finally bought a Grimes cockpit light at the right price. Works great and changes from red to white. It's dimmable and has a momentary button on the rheostat knob.

    Laid carpeting in the cockpit too. Just some cheap indoor/outdoor stuff. It's the sort of carpet you'd cover speaker boxes with. Looks a lot better than bare floor or even painted wood.

    Hi Michael..

    Cool idea on the carpet... where did you find it? Was it at a carpet store or hardware place? That is what I would like to use.. Any advice on where to find it would be appreciated.

    Michael,
    Are those home made set tracks? nice additions in the light and carpet too.

    Yes, they're self-feeding equipment rack rollers. I'm thinking of replacing them with one with metal wheels. You can find them in McMaster-Carr's catalog.

    You can get that carpeting nearly anywhere that sells auto stereo equipment or auto parts.

    I wish I hadn't shook the phone!

    One thing I noticed about the iPhone is that even though the resolution is better than my old Razer, the shutter speed is slower. You almost need a tripod to take pictures with this thing.

    Thanks!
