Just bought this from Stockornaut.






It's gonna be a crusty driver. I need some seats, fender and other nonsense.

I'd ditch that one and get the one on Craig's! I was told by Lindy a few years ago "You'll be way ahead by starting with more but you'll pay more!" I'm on my third build and he's right!

I agree Bob. I already started writing checks for the other this bug though. Had I seen the CL listing two weeks ago, I'd be all over it.

Been tinkering with Warbird. Installed body molding and hood emblem. Slowly filling holes in the dash with parts like a grab handle, functioning fuel gauge, glove box button, new (old) speedo, plugging the speaker hole, and installing a wire cover in an effort to get her ready for cold weather. Currently in the process of installing a 1600 and some new rear shocks.

Thanks. You'd never guess that plane is almost 20 years older than the bug.

So the plane was built in the 40's?
