This is my 1966 Piper Cherokee 140 that I decided to upgrade with new paint & interior. This is the last photo of how she looked with the old paint. Up close, her paint was Matte looking & had no shine to it. It was oxidized also, but from a distance she looked good. The wingtips and the strobe on the tail are new in this photo as well.
As you can see in this photo, I have already removed the carpet & seats. Although the panels were in decent condition, they were a really dated design. The carpet was the same color but quite aged & discolored. Seatbelts are also getting replaced.
