A 98 degree Texas day = high density altitude. Add two large butts and it was said the gear almost made
it into the wheel wells when it went thru the trees.
This and several boxes of parts is what we were given to start with.
We drilled it all apart. Fabricated new center section skins, increased the side skin to .040 and made it
into a one piece instead of two. All ribs were repaired or replaced and everything got a coat of epoxy primer.
Landing gear parts were all cleaned, blasted, rebushed, epoxy primed and painted in urethane. Installed
using all new hardware.
