De-wiring done

Today I completed the de-wiring. I weighed just the wire alone and it came out to over 30 lbs. This doesn’t include all the instruments I took out which will be replaced by lighter equipment.


From a wiring nightmare,


to a clean sheet.


Not bad for a days work.


Basically, I have a clean plane with an engine now. The next step is to strip the interior of the existing finish, make some new interior panels and replace the sight glasses. Then re-zolatone the interior.

I am not looking forward to the dust and mess of the next step.

    I started out doing what you’re doing. Its a big commitment. I got too impatient after a few yrs so just cleaned out the wiring a wee bit, mapped it out, and returned the LongEz back to flying. However, I know YOU can do it in 4 to 6 months. See you at Sun n Fun. BTW, what was your basic empty weight before the restore?
