My friend Pam decided that we don't spend enough time here on Circus. I agree so I'm starting this thread to to give us a reason to be here. This is my favorite forum after all. This plane used to belong to Herve the owner of PAU. We're friends so I usually hang out with him and the rest of the gang at Joe Nall. This year Kyle (The Alien) W. I'm not attempting to spell his last name. Had a dead stick and landed the plane on the wrong side. The top. It's messed up pretty bad. This is not just an ordinary Extra. It has become a favorite plane of Kyle and several of the other guys that fly for pau. It even Acquired a nick name. "Cookie" While we were stopping the plane Herve Asked me if I could fix the plane. Cocky ass me said (Sure I Can). He asked me if I wanted it. I told him (Yes I Do). The only reason was because it was a sentimental favorite and it deserved a second chance. So now My big mouth got me int a challenging build. Let week while I didn't have anything to do but watch TV I decided to take a look at what it would take to fix up the Cookie. I didn't like what I found . Pretty much Every section will need some kind of attention. I started with the Cowl the top was broken So I glued it back together and reinforced it with some glass. I don't like working with F/G so I set it aside at this point and started on the fuse. I'll let the pictures do the talking.
