Basically you have to take it apart and put it together with pics. Have the seals replaced in the engine and all rubber components.
Take it to the Dar , get a new N number and airworthiness certificate and go fly.
Nice winter project for someone.
I would love to have it but can’t justify the...
I would like to make him an offer . I am considering travel and the fact that there are no builder logs. As I understand it , the engine needs to be gone through and change of seals is in order at minimum, I think.
then have to find a DAR, get an airworthiness cert.

I videoed my stick today . There was a lot of traffic and everyone was using the...

Some days it’s fine and others I’m scared to let go of the stick to take a pic.
