I just bought a PA-12 on floats. Specifically, it`s an Experimental PA-12 replica with a PA-12 fuselage, PA-18 wings and tail. Wouldn`t need any STC`s.
The engine is good, the fabric fair. I`m thinking that once I get the beast paid for I`d like to get it rebuilt with most of the Alaskan mods, PA-18 gear, big Bush Wheels and tail wheel, left-hand door, bigger fuel tanks, maybe a belly tank, re-covered and new paint.
Anybody got a ball-park figure of the cost to do all this?
I`m thinking Dan`s in Fairbanks but I`m sure there are other options out there.
Wait a minute ...... let me sit down first!
