It has a MA3SPA carburator with the Lowe STC. A 50 amp Jasco alternator supplies all the electrical needs.

Solar grey windshield and dark tinted glass make this a "cool" Texas airplane.

We used all Poly Fiber products for the wing covering and also the paint top coat. The colors are Nevada Silver and Santa Fe Red.
