Discovery continues: The 1996 log entries show complete repaint and rebuild of tail with new fittings.  Here are the inner butt ends of the Horizontal Stab.  Top is normal riveting, middle is beyond unsat (note the overpaint with the exterior color), the bottom view of the riveting speaks for itself.  No 'prebuy' could have spotted this stuff without completly taking the tail apart.

Tail work - sometime in the past the left elevator cable slipped off the pulley in the tail.  It was flown enough to saw into the support bracket.  No replacement done.  Note the slit in the bracket made by the cable.

She didnt know it but she got me a 47 Westfield Columbia Compax Paratrooper take apart bike, one wing nut and she comes apart in two pieces, just what a guy needs to make a beer run into town at Columbia next year!  But will she fit in the 48 Luscombe is the big question on Christmas day?
