Respraying Aircraft

Unread post by Dazman » Mon Jan 11, 2010 1:29 pm

Hi there,

I have a C150 which spent about 20 years at the coast in Port Alfred. She is now up in Joburg but has aquired a bit of corrosion from the time spent by the coast. This is not too severe but the paint job is also not looking too good so I figured i should let her be resprayed and remove the corrosion.

I only have a budget of R20 000. Do you think I can have the job done for this amount? Do you know anyone who does a good job and would be able to complete in the constraints of my budget?

Appreciated any advice. :)

Thx

Dazman, I have no idea what they might charge for what you want, but just for interest sake contact Leading edge aviation at Nelspruit old airport.They do good work there and IIRC are the agents for the anti corrotion stuff to help stop further problems.
Sorry no tel no with me now, google or phone book will work

Dazman,

You can also speak to Riekert at Montana Aircraft, Wonderboom, 012-5675724 or Baron Cloete at BC Air at Rand, 0837282206.

Don't know if they can or will do it for that price, but if you don't ask, you won't know! :wink:
