    Oy Veh, That can't be a Tri-Pacer, I fly a Tri-Pacer and it doesn't look ANYTHING like that! ;-)

    What they did was restore it to better than new, but look like original. Big wing #s etc. They did not reuse any original aluminum including the nose bowl. ALL new! I'd like to have what they wouldn't use. They took a couple of exceptions though, like leather upholstery and modern radios. I'm just finishing up a 22 restoration and yea mine doesn't look that good either. I did poly fiber and I think they sold me on Superflite. She's a beaut and I think she might be for sale. Your plane could look like that.

    Great pictures, Andy. Curiously enough, that first one, N7491K, seems to be registered to fellow resident of Milford Oh -- a not-as-yet-met neighbor of mine, as I too live in Milford. I am going have to look him up and share a couple of cold ones.
