Default Ghost back from paint shop

Well now I can officially say my 9a is done. Just got it back from the paint shop.
Purple Hill Aviation just north of london ontario did my work. Grass strip so the wheel pants are still off. John and Som did an outstanding job for me taking my silly sketches and turning them into a finished product exactly like I wanted. Highly recommend them, really great guys to do business with.








Back together with pants, and better pictures to come. Just happy its home! PS this hangar will be the same one RV1 sits in for the WINDSOR ONTARIO stop. Come say hi. Happy to roll out the red carpet to any visitors. Customs on the field, 2 minutes from Detroit.

Wow, Rick, that looks sharp! Congrats.

However, there appears to be some sort of blotch on the tail. Looks like half of a leaf or something. Might want to have them touch that up.

Again, congrats on The Ghost's new look.

Very nice. I like the Maple Leaf.
Do you have a tinted canopy? Looks darker than usual.

Default Thanks

Appreciate the comments. Very hard picking a paint scheme and not just hijacking someone elses.

When I saw 3 rvs with the exact same paint job and colours at osh, figured that was not the way to go.

Will get some better pics when all back together, just excited to have it back. Wahoo.
