My Full-Restored
Corbin Baby Ace


finished

This Baby Ace was built in 1977 by a master craftsman. Has had only three owners (I am the third) since certified.

I just completed a full fabric-off restoration. Very few issues found, all addressed. Fresh annual and full safety check July this year.

Engine: 1420 SMOH -- Powered by a strong C75 engine which runs like new. Good compression all around. No unusual oil consumption. New oil temp gauge installed.

Fabric installed this spring. Stewarts System used.


Here are some pictures of the plane and it's restoration.

Recovered with Ceconite using the Stewart non-toxic system. Excellent system.
Easy and clear and amazingly strong seams. Below finished wing is shown with grey
filler/primer before painting. Highly recommend the Stewart system and would use again.
