N52111 new N180V total restoration
Author Last Post
I am based in SAF and yes that pretty woman is my wife, she did the soundproofing. The paint job was done in WIckenburg AZ and they did a tremendous job, I highly recommend them. Their price was very fair for the amount of work.

Jean-Pierre,

I saw your plane is Santa Fe too. Where are you based now?

Super nice restoration job. You should be very proud of N180V. BTW, the only pictures of people actually working on your plane are the painter and a pretty lady whom I assume is your wife. Just wondering if she deserves all the credit for a great piece of work???

Have a great day. Fly carefully in your new bird.

Having worked on this project myself I get a better understanding of why aircraft maintenance bills are often higher than expected. Changing the fuel bladder for instance does seem a straight forward procedure but the time and aggravation of taping all the seams and rivet heads, especially in the far corners is frustrating at times and demands the operator to place his body in very unphysiological positions!

Yes that's the one, it used to be in california, came to SAF around 1999 and quit being flown in 2001.

Was this thing parked at Sante Fe inside a hangar about a dozen years ago?  I recognize the fuel stains running down the fuselage.
