My friends, if you have done all of the above, you have saved yourself at least $500 by doing this yourself. To boot, you will have maintained or increased the value of your aircraft. Pride of ownership is the ultimate payback.

REMEMBER - the AME inspects for conformity to the original type certificate. If he finds the aircraft as per the original, and everything works, then he is entitled to sign it off. If you have done your job as an owner, the AME should not have to do any work other than inspecting and torquing and safetying items you have undone.
