    Default Back again , finally started on my 40 year old project

    My name is will.

    I was given a 1948 piper pa-15 vagabond back 10 years ago from my father who has owned it since 1956. I even am listed in the log book as my first ride in 1956. We just had the fuselage bead blasted and primed and now the fun begins. I would like to upgrade the engine from the o-145 to a o-200 but it seems no one has done this yet. So any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Will,

    Sounds like a fun project, those are cool airplanes. I can put you in touch with a couple owners if you'd like, maybe they can provide some pictures and moral support. You can also chat with Dan Stwart of Stewart Systems, he has a really nice Vagabond that he redid.
