8483R Dropped off at Arizona Aircraft Painting (KFFZ)


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.

Panel Photos




Here, I’m sitting in the back seat as my buddy Adam flys her into Prescott.


A decent shot of the panel









Here you can see my EKP-IV GPS system which will soon integrate into my autopilot.
