Ashamed to confess to this, but with 120 hours on N2578B, went night flying for the first time last night.
While my original light is still burning brightly, some of the metal tape seems to have melted off, leaving some of the top left (pilot side) part of the light uncovered by the tape. It also seems that at that spot, I’m getting a considerable reflection off the prop.
Is this reflection due to the tape coming off, or is it just something I have to learn to live with? Also, any suggestions about how to augment the missing tape without creating a fire hazard or some other type of problem?
As always, appreciate the input.
