"Big Toot" now has the following completed, laid out, installed or ready for bolting:
cables and the tailwheel assembly installed
brake system for landing wheels
rudder control bar
rudder pedal heel plates
and the legacy piece for Meyer Aircraft, the control stick knob from
the original Little Toot.
The knob was originally a deep red but now, some 58 years after N61G's first flight, time and wear have changed it to a gold hue.

These Wire Guides have bearings. That means as the wire moves the guide rolls along with it; result: easier wire movement, no "slop", longer life of all components.
