Visit to the Golden Age Air Museum
Paul, his father and the crew are nearly finished with their Jenny restoration. As you can see from the picture, the workmanship is magnificent.
Here's a shot of Paul making the access door opening in the Jenny side cowl. Paul probably saw the look of envy on my face as I admired the great looking louvers he had made.
Feeling generous, Paul made me a set of cowl access doors to take home! Check these out:
Paul made these louvers by pressing a rubber sheet into a female mold with a hydraulic press. By the way they turned out, I'd say his ingenuity was effective.
Paul also made an extra set of windshields for me. Since no real guidance survives (old blueprints or drawings) He spent hours trying to get the windshields exactly right from old photographs. Thanks, Paul.
