My Piper Cherokee 160
 Here's some photos of my 1962 Piper Cherokee. This is a factory 160, not the common 140 converted to a 160.

Since I've bought the airplane in June of 2014, here's a list of things I've had done to it:

-Prop stripped, repainted and rebalanced
-All fuel lines in the engine compartment replaced
-New battery installed
-All new spark plugs
-New oil lines
-Two new comm antennas installed
-New ELT Antenna
-Second VOR and ADF (both inop) removed
-Installed B.A.S. new front seat belts with shoulder harnesses
-Some serious elbow grease cleaning from top to bottom!
-Shampoo'd the carpets
-Aircraft re-weighed for new weight and balance sheet
-Nose gear scissors bead blasted and powder coated

This is really a beautiful airplane and I really enjoy owning and flying it.

 

 

 
N5255W My dad and I flew N5255W to Oshkosh in 2014. We've been going to Oshkosh every year since 1996 (we skipped 1999-2001) so I'm sure we will fly there again!
   
Cherokee N5255W Sharp lookin' airplane, right?
   
Cherokee N5255W This picture was also taken the day I bought it. When I brought the plane home, I removed the carpets and cleaned them. They cleaned up really nice and all the stains you see here were removed.

I just installed brand new seat belts and shoulder harnesses from B.A.S. but I need to get some current pics.

UPGRADES:  
   
I removed the cabin heat box and rebuilt it. It was so old and nasty that the cable wouldn't even move the butterfly valve.
   
All the hardware has been replaced, and the metal parts were bead blasted and repainted. I chose red just because it looks cool!
   
Nose gear The nose gear scissor pieces were removed, beat blasted, and powder-coated. Looks great!
   
Nose Gear Of course all the hardware was replaced.
