No...she'd still be 80% original airframe wise. The right wing was rebuilt after an accident in which the right main gear was also ripped out but beyond that she is 'as restored' by one of Col Pay's engineers 25 odd years ago. That original restoration was period perfect too..when I first flew her walking up to her was like being in a 1956 time warp. Maybe 1 new head and half a handle
The ground up restoration of my pride and joy is on going.
The L/H horizontal stabiliser after demating, bead blasting, two pack etch and some new skins...its mate is also as good as new.
The guts of the vertical stab being clecoed back together after the above process. The missing three ribs were so corroded we manufactured new ones (a few hundred $ as opposed to US$800 each from Beechcraft), the leading edge skin cleaned up a treat and is now white and we also manufactured new side skins.
The engine bay after a little cleaning.
You can see the holes and cracks in the 'chin' skin.
LOTS more cleaning and some new bits
Cleaned, acid washed, alodined and the holes cut for the new supplemental louvers
Two pack etching
Ready to be painted Matterhorn white and reinstallation of engine mounts, engine/cowl flap controls and fitting/rigging of the upper cowl doors...which are similarly restored.
The engine mounts, cowl latch mounts and cowl flap control crossover tube after bead blasting.
The structural 'back bone' roof skin...as removed, note corrosion.
That came from here.
Cleaned, acid washed and alodined.
Painted and ready to go back on after prep of the underlaying structure is complete.
