To upgrade, or fly it as it is, is the big question. I flew it 'as is' for a while, then I realized that I would want more fuel in wing tanks, etc...., and decided to start a rebuild.
Now, I stop wing re-build until satisfied with the welding of the expanded tanks. There is alway some new skill or lesson to learn.
