|I have a great IO 540 powered Starduster Too for sale.
It has flown in the past year.
When it was new it was a show plane, but the primer softened under the urethane top coat.
The fabric is in good condition so it would be a shame to recover it.
I have used paint remover to soften the top coat and peeled the paint away in a couple of spots. Once the top coat was removed the primer could be removed with lacquer thinner and lots of rags.
The problem was the Cooper Superflite system called for too much flex agent in the primer.
This plane is a great performer and could be made back into a show plane with elbow grease and repaint.
I plan on removing the engine,prop and avionics and sell the plane as is.
I am completely open to offers.
It has a complete canopy. Photo available
