Default Great Planes Seawind Restoration

Picked up this seawind with a gas engine and in rough shape.

I will be going through and restoring the plane back to is original glory.

- Fiberglass repair
- engine cowl replacement if I can find one or maybe repair the cowl I have.
- Partial nose weight removal
- Step extension
- Firewall repair
- Hopefully retract install
- Retract nose gear door install
- Repaint white but probably different trim colors…not great with trim painting Name:  smile.gif

Here are some pictures of the current progress. Repairs have been made to everything except extending the step. I decided to keep the step as is.
