Since all of this aluminum and rivet work remodeling and restoring our '71 Sovereign
31' I have reinvigorated a long time dream of building a kit plane, or rebuilding an older plane.
I believe I have the mechanical skills, and now have developed some of the aluminum/rivet skills, and definitely have the desire...now I just the need that last, and all important...cash.
I grew up flying weekly with gramps and have always dreamed of doing it on my own. Now that I am 50, kids are about gone, and my MX riding days are over I am feeling a draw back to the skies.
BTW, yes, I am crazy. I have a doctors note and the prescriptions to prove it.
All that remains is acquiring the funds.
Man this Airstream project is gonna cost me more than I ever expected.
