N2935D Makeover Debut

Postby rusty » Wed Aug 24, 2011 10:17 pm

N2935D all spiffed up and ready for another half century. Interior original we just replaced the carpet. Had the turquoise repainted and has all of eight hours since major. Lots of elbow grease later we have a gorgeous "new" airplane.

Rusty, very nice! You'll have to tell us more and share more regarding your project.

I was at the hanger today at the debut, and I've got to say that plane is absolutely perfect.

Looks Great!! But you did have a pretty nice canvas to start with. Has Mike seen it yet? Glad she went to a good home.

Rusty, as you know, I have seen your plane numerous times and it is a jewel. I am anxious to see it since this last project. Rumor, yesterday, had it that there was a photo shoot at Hicks today and maybe an article on your plane upcoming. I wasn't where I could come up to see it in person. Share where we might see this article if you are at liberty to do so.

Whooo-Hoooo! Very nice! (Glad it's turquoise and not green.) :lol:

I saw it when your Dad was in the hangar one day, and I was very impressed with the condition of the interior at that time. Sweet airplane....

As Bruce and Kathy Rhymes can attest, most of us are easy distracted by shiny objects. We look a lot like this smilie > 8O


Now if, and it is a big if, that is an original compass correction card, I'll be impressed. :lol:
(And I want a copy of the card for my interior label collection)

Very nice.

Wow! What a beauty!
Guess Kathy and I better get to polishing if we expect to have a chance at the next 170 Gathering...
Can't wait to see your plane, Rusty!

That is a beautiful job. Looks like it just came out of the factory.
