Roger. I think I am going to take another look at the value of this to me and anyone browsing. I have tried several avenues and they are all dead ends...lol

I am not seeing them either after a thorough cache cleaning

Default what happened

Kent: In one of the first posts in this thread a reference was made that looked like it was the history of how you got started into this project but when I click on it, nothing comes up. Can you give me a brief history? Thanks, John R

John,
I got started looking for a plane to purchase, certified. Couldn't find anything with the performance I wanted. Started looking for a kit and found that Vans is right down the 5 freeway 20 minutes. Seemed like the best choice.
Saw the plane wreck I now own for sale on Barnstormers I think and after some vacillation, I thought I could make it work and bought it. Trailered it up from SAC and started work on it. It was a turn over from Nevada originally. I purchased it from the guy who bought the wreck originally for the motor that was in it. So it had no motor or panel and had a bent left wing spar amongst many other things.

I purchased a SB fuse kit minus hardware and a few skins and have been resurrecting it ever since.
I knew it would have more damage than I thought and I was correct. I have rebuilt many vintage cars and it is always worse than you think. At least that has been my experience.

I think that about sums it up!

Kent

Just messing about with the frame and getting to know each other a bit better before we go all the way.



Hope they show...

Now they don't show! They did, and now they don't (and I'm signed into my Google account). Unfortunately, Google sucks!
