It took about three hours but the effort was well worth it and at the end, my little Weedhopper was spick and span and all ready to go.
It was sunny and bright while I was cleaning her up but it clouded over before I could take the pictures to record my handiwork but I’m super-pleased with how she came up. It’s hard to believe that this is a 20 year-old aircraft as it doesn’t look it either inside or out. The shots over the wings show how its covers are still in excellent condition for its age – much better than good ole MYRO’s were.
So it’ll be the turn of the Savannah tomorrow and with a bit of luck from the condition of the runway today, I might even be able to get the first flight of the year in, in the Weedhopper because when I’ve confirmed that everything to do with it is fine (I’m sure it will be) I want to contact the prospective purchaser ASAP. I might even shoot a little video to send to him – I’ll have to wait and see how things turn out.
