This aircraft has completed a total refurbishment.
It was completely disassembled almost to the point of being down to rivets. Essentially the only parts that remained in the fuselage were good control cables and aluminum hydraulic lines. All parts were stripped of old paint (including the engine mount) and properly prepared for new finish. The following is a partial list of work completed:
Easily removable auxiliary fuel tank in baggage compartment (approximately 12 gallons). Pump control on upper right panel. Note: It would be difficult to find an aircraft refurbishment more extensive than this one. Countless hours attending to details and maintenance.
This aircraft includes a COMPLETE empennage kit (partially built) and wing kit.

Joe Schumacher has built or restored more than 40 aircraft in the last 35+ years, including building three SX-300s and restoring two. On the list are many of Van’s RV’s. He wouldwelcome any serious buyers to visit his shop near Iron Mountain, MI (IMT), in order to see this project in process as it nears completion. There are good connections through Minneapolis via Delta Airlines (rental cars available in IMT) or through Green Bay, WI, about a two hour drive to his shop in Florence, WI.
