    Some before and after fun, I started on this project 2 years ago. The body was un-cut, but rusted badly and beat to ****. About 20 % of the sheet metal is new. Welding, patches in 19 different spots.

    Got paint at the convention and some good weather here in SC to splash it on.

    Great looking A2, are you putting the ROPS back in it?

    Well gang, its a wrap. Restoration completed on 6 Nov 2018. Maiden run of about 25 miles to an airfield north of us.

    my starting point was an un-cut 1971 A2. Pretty badly rusted out below, banged up above. Otherwise pretty complete. Engine needed pistons, rings, crank bearings.

    I picked markings from 4 squadron, 2nd Cav, unit 6, stationed in Bavaria in 1974.
