A photo documentation log of the complete restoration of a 1989 Van's RV-4, SN# 1775 with new paint, wiring, solid-state electrical buss and the latest in experimental Efis's, autopilots and engine management systems. Plus the conversion of a stock built -4 into one with a Sliding Canopy (ala RV-8) and a Harmon Rocket fastback turtle deck.

(Without using the Wing Removal Stick)
Today was a pretty big day in the dissassembly of the -4. My friend from down south was in the area passing through and stopped by to bring me lunch and help with the heavy lifting. He had never worked on an airplane before and did it partly for the bragging rights.
Some shots of the cleaned out interior. (instrument panel removed) I'm looking forward to getting some uniform paint coloring in there.
