Well chaps, hold onto your hats.... here we go!
Having made the decision to rebuild our plane, I thought I'd start a thread to take us (and you) through the process step by step. I think we are going to learn a hell of a lot through this process... there will undoubtedly be lots of swearing and frustration too!
Just to remind you what we are dealing with... here is what DBP looks like now.
The total rebuild will be from the ground up. We are going to make this trike as good as she was when she rolled off the factory floor, complete with new wing sail and propeller. She is just too pretty to chuck in the skip.
Step 1: the Airframe, I think we have found a suitable candidate.... going to check it out on Wed
Anybody know a good "spray shop" in the Pta area? Will need to do some re spraying of schock covers, wheel spats and the pylon fairings etc.... We are also looking for a good low hour accident free wing structure from an Aquilla 2
