Cessna P210N Silver Eagle

Conversion In Progress

Our project of building a showcase worthy Silver Eagle began with the dismantling of an old Silver Eagle airframe. We removed all quality components necessary for conversion including the engine mounts, the extension of the cowlings, Jet A fuel lines, and much more. We began to strip the engine cowling and wheel wells down to the aluminum to cover them in a fresh new coat of paint.

After the mounts and cowling extensions were installed we began installing the cowling air ducts and fine-tune the cowlings. We started to run new avionics and electrical system wiring. New gear doors were installed and fit to perfection. All fuel lines were replaced with proper lines removed from the old conversion. New baggage fuel tanks were installed and the new LED nav/strobe/beacon lights were fit.
