    Hangar available Atlanta metro

    wow...that's amazing...I'd love to decrease my hangar expense but I am thrilled with my current hangar (but not the cost) having a bathroom...amazing how many people use it again right before we leave or right when we get back!

    Rocket CG?

    now that was funny (true of course)...gave me a good laugh in the middle of the day!
  3. is the exhaust missing?
  4. this is always a tough question. At 40-50 years of age (mine is a 1979) our planes are now a story book of upgrades and/or repairs to paint, interior, avionics, engine, and mechanicals...different people care about different categories. We have to find a plane that works or we can upgrade the components that are most important. I almost think you have to be willing to open your wallet a bit for the plane that has exactly what you want...instead of deducting for one that doesn't... I have a Century IIB with STEC 30 altitude hold installed by PO for ~$7K (the STEC piece). It will track Nav sources as well as the bug (which is what I find I use most of the time). I don't have auto trim or vertical speed. Even this basic setup is an amazing aid in single pilot IFR ops. Good luck

    Fuel bladder values

    My '79 was patched many times and finally ended up with bladders...installed at O&N...one of the few upgrades I've done that was 100% right from the very beginning (seems like I always have to go back for at least something minor).

    Fuel bladder values

    Yeah Joey's a good dude... I spent a couple AMU patching my old tanks for a few years before finally giving up and getting bladders...as far as the original question...as I buyer, I would put no value in a 10 year old reseal-even from the best known shops-too many stories of leaking after reseal (which are covered by warranty for a number of years I get it). Now 10 year old bladders...I'm excited to see that. Now how to quantify...that's the difficult thing...it would definitely tip the scale in favor of 2 equal planes (with and w/o bladders). Throw a # out there...probably worth $5k to me if the bladders are 10-15 years old or less. Remember these are $14k installed now. Same thing I paid in 2014

    Wrong Way Pattern

    maybe a Sport Cruiser...
  8. Always the journey not the destination...20 years building and selling it after 55 hours

    Operation Air Drop

    It would be great if KJKA worked as a second pickup point. It looks like the ball is really rolling for Gainesville now.

    TANKS - Weeping - Patch - Nuance

    Not on your field of course by we chased leaks on my '79 for a couple years until I gave up and had them redone...in retrospect I wish I would have never tried to patch and put all the repair money towards a real fix. That the big problem as @DonMuncy said above...you just don't know if a patch will work for 10 years or until the next flight--Now I'm doing my best to pursue more "permanent" repairs as needed since I'm planning to keep 79H for a long time still.
  12. Tom are you setting up a website? details? I doubt I'm in the market right now but could be prior to paint. @tomgo2

    Cirrus Delivery

    amazing how fast the Cirrus was going when it hit the hangar. I'm sure that was quite a jolt if the pilot was still hanging onto the door. -K

    Now that adds a whole new dimension. Thanks for sharing!
