Decent paint job all around. Blue with white trim. She shows her age a bit, but for the money this is a great find.
Blue with white highlights. No tears or rips on seating. Could use a new interior, but great for a trainer!
All ADs complied with. Annual good until 11/23. Log books since new are available and well kept.
