I bought a 9a nearing two years ago in grand haven started back in 2000
I flew up and looked it over with another ia AP sn 90024 I've converted to a 9.
Hoping you didn't give a lot for it as I must agree the riveting looks bad as not likely airworth.
Keep us posted

Best of luck with the build! I'm up in Grand Haven and building a 9A as well (rather slowly). Hope to see you around.

Good Luck,
Ethan

Well we've been busy doing a few more items to the plane. And bought a couple more things for the shop. I seem to always need more table top space, so I headed to the local Harbor Frt and bought an x-frame stand. Also bought a cart to wheel tools to the work area. Items for ease of manufacture.

And while not an RV, here's a couple of pictures of the C120 I restored and learned to fly. I didn't have my PPL when I started the project, just the voices in my head that said, "Restore an airplane, learn to fly". We did just that and have enjoyed the challenge ever since! https://www.cessna120-140.org/forum/...p?f=12&t=11526

Yes, I'm a Buckeye transplanted to Mi for the last 30 years. I notice that people up here seem to cheer at the wrong times during our big game....

Somehow the C120 even turned out Scarlet and gray. My friend Victor G. from the type club and I, lined up the planes one day preparing for the annual rivalry. What kind of crazy person, paints their plane in school colors anyway??

Does anyone have an idea as to why I can't insert an image from Google photo's?
It worked fine on the previous posts I've made here, but now when I paste in the URL address, it doesn't upload the single picture I'm wanting to place in the thread. It uploads a link to all the pictures in that file I think I saw.
I just want to upload a single picture....
Must have some sharing option wrong.
It was working fine up until this time that I'm trying to post.
Any thoughts?
Thank you,

Andy C.

Back on now with a different photosharing site. Google photo's quit working to upload pictures.

We fabricated an engine stand for the O-320 we're about to start overhauling. And the Fuse is in the paint booth for some preliminary interior painting.

Can you explain what's wrong with it?

I'm pretty sure I can see what's wrong (skin damage etc) but a full rundown from those in the know would be instructive!

I wonder if the guy even knew that he had to deburr the rivet holes after he drilled them...
