    As most of you know, I have used Starbrite polish on my boat for as long as I can remember. I've occasionally even used it on my cars. Well, the airplane needed some loving, and I didn't have anything to use, so I figured what the heck, I'll give it a try.

    Man, I love Starbrite's products, I should buy stock in the company.

    I have to include this picture of panel porn, so when people ask me why I am not taking any long boating trips this year, they will understand. IMG_1492.jpg

    Dang, if I had a plane, especially one as pretty as yours with as much panel porn as yours has, I don't know if I would EVER go out on a boat again. :grin:

    The boat is definitely not at the top of the food chain any more.

    I am trying to figure out which model Piper. It looks like an Archer with wheel pants.

    I see a lot of "before" pictures but the "after" pictures seem to be missing...

    Your guess is mostly correct...actually it is a challenger, the archer started with the tapered wings.

    I used to own a Archer. Great little plane. Flew it throughout NewEngland. Enjoy as it is a fun plane. If you are ever high on approach, the piper dis well diving and bleeding off speed. I found Cessna's were better to pull than he throttle and use like an elevator.

    Actually if you hold your approach speed at 85 mph, and pull the throttle, she drops like a rock. It is a great airplane though, I did my instrument rating in one back in 1988, and have had a soft spot for the model ever since.

    I bought this one with the intention of teaching my two sons how to fly, so should they decide to follow in my footsteps, they can do the flying on the side and get a college degree in something else. When I lost my medical for six years, it became apparent that having a degree in aviation was next to worthless.
