    I don't know if I'd trust an airplane that shiny. Doesn't look like it's ever been used, never tested.

    Thanks gents.
    I hope to make it much prettier by putting on 8.50's and taking it to the plethora of grass strips in my area.
    She's spent a few years in Alaska before coming full circle back to the Midwest. The previous owner spent, rather paid someone, to polish her.

    She needs some work, new flap tracks, both sides. The tail feathers have a few dents from hail. Not a structural issue, replacing the elevator skin would make her a 10/10( my opinion). I'll take it to airventure next year, so we'll see what the judges think too.

    Very cool. Congratulation! I can't wait to see it in person. What field are you going to hangar it at?

    Nope. Getting ready to move back to the lower 48 shortly. Most of my money is tied up in the move. Owning a plane is a bucket list item.
