We found what looked to be a very nice Tri-Pacer fuselage and removed the flat metal to comply with 819. People should know that there’s a reason for that service bulletin, and I got to see why. Every tube under flat metal was replaced and a few more that had pits. Every time “The Crew” made a pass over this thing, they were finding more work for me to do. Oh well…. Measure, cut, fit, grind, fit, grind, fit, and weld.
While we were here we tried to do every mod known to man, left door, skylight, Cub gear. etc.
