  4. Its black just faded, we are about to paint it. When your ready to get yours painted contact me (greglumpylambert@gmail.com) my airplane mechanic has a landing strip on his farm and can strip the old pain off pretty reasonably. After its is striped you can spray it outdoors and get decent results (like painting a hot rod in your back yard), it wont be a professional aircraft paint job but much better than it is now.

    A real airplane paint job done professionally cost more than these old birds are worth. I own a car lot that specializes in rebuilt vehicles so I have access to some good automotive body men. Spraying a car and a plane are pretty much the same, its the prep that is different. A plane needs to be striped chemically or gently with hand sanding, an air sander can damage the rivets.

    PS: You got a great deal I bought mine for $12500 out of annual and past TBO (TBO BTW is an estimate mine is at 2300 hrs and compression is still strong) and I thought I got a good deal.
