    Default Maybe 2020 will be the year I get traction

    So I bought this project last year thinking Iíd have more time to work on it. Well, that didnít really happen - all Iíve done is get the fuselage fabric off and start grinding on the metal welds trying to get it ready for the Service Bulletin. I thought Iíd have a hit more guidance from a ln IA friend, but he had a rough year, too.

    So, Iím gonna try and see if I canít get more done this year. The bird is a PA-20.

    Hope you find the time to work on your project this year! If you have questions just ask because you will find many knowledgeable people here and they are all willing to help. If you do not have the drawings from the Short Wing Piper Club https://www.shortwingpiperclub.org/s...r-drawings-cd/ I would suggest you get a copy. You have a great support group here and they want to see you succeed.

    I know the feeling....

    Mine has been sitting in a heated hangar all winter with my new engine on it and I just can't get out there to finish it up. I'm also about to get kicked out of the hangar within the week....what a bummer.

    I wish, after about 12 hours I am toast and my brain is mush. "Back to work."
