Sad to say that on Easter Day my 601 xl-b took a direct hit on both wings and prop from high wind blown in hanger doors.
As I try as hard as I can to locate wings ,prop and save my 25 hour tt engine it is becoming painfully obvious that my 601 xl-b has made it last flight.
Such a total joy to have flown.
Can't say where I go from here but not into the sky with N2257.

I have a set of 601 wings. They are upgraded and still open for inspection.  No fuel tanks. I'll let them go very cheap.  Basically I want them out of my hanger and can't stand the thought of scrapping them. I'm in Virginia.  Let me know if you (or anyone else for that matter) are interested.  These aren't perfect cosmetically, but are certainly flyable.  Sorry, can't help with the prop.

Sorry to hear...

Sad event... time to sell and build another. The dash and motor are the big ticket stuff... build new using that.
