Engine comes off

Restoration is initially a backward process... the airplane will look less and less like an airplane for a while now. And then right at the end, it all (hopefully) comes together!

For a software engineer like me, there is something "masculine" about removing a C90 engine without the help of a professional mechanic! :-)  The Piper Cub is said to be a simple airplane, but there is still a lot of wires and stuff going through the firewall. But, it was easy and now the engine is at the local workshop Aeromech where it will be overhauled later this year. Lets hope there is no corrosion found... At least it runs smooth. With the engine off, the fuselage is now just short enough to fit on my garage at home. Will shortly bring it home where I will be able to do a little each day. Things are looking good!
