When this Piper Seneca came to us, it was in rough shape. It flew like a brand new plane, but had the looks of an aircraft that is way past its years. The pain was chipping all over, removing any defense against possible future erosion or rusting, and on top of that, the design simply looked dated. Take a look below:
We chemically stripped the Seneca down to the bare metal, and began blocking out the custom design. We worked with the owner of this aircraft to develop a design with less color variation for a modern, crisp look and more curved lines to accentuate the shape of this beautiful aircraft. Once the plane was ready for paint – our certified team of aircraft painting technicians went to work.
The finished product looks like a complete different aircraft. The lines are clean and graphic, the paint job is shiny and eye-catching and the planes is now protected from erosion and rusting thanks to the highest quality materials. The owner of this Piper is proud to call this aircraft his!
