The Point by Kent

         We're making steady progress on the Skycoupe project.
          Saturday morning the fabric on the fuselage was removed in preparations
          for a cleanup of the fuselage before recovering.

          Niels did a superb job of removing the aluminum leading edges from the
          wings.  Next we'll be making some minor repairs to the wings and
          preparing it for covering.

          Terry has done a good job with the engine, any now we need a few parts
          to get it running.  Before our group spends money, we'll call on the
          membership for donations of parts you may have.

          We need the following:

          1. Propeller, fixed-pitch, metal, fits Lycoming 6-whole flange for O-290
          engine, diameter range 72"-74", pitch range 48"-52".

          2. Starter for Lycoming O-290.  We have a Delco-Remy starter, model
          number 1109657, S/N 21180, 12 volt.   Can anyone rebuild such old units,
          or have a newer one that they'll donate?

          There will be plenty more items we will need, stay tuned.
