Jack's Hack Restoration
P-51D Racer Restoration Diary
Monthly Updates by Restoration Crew Chief, Pete McConnell


The windshield assembly was removed from the fuselage, stripped of all paint and prepared for primer. All internal surfaces were painted flat black. A new bumper was installed on the anti-glare shield edge. Missing windshield and side window retaining strips were fabricated and fit. A replacement windshield and side glass panels were test fitted and then removed for frame painting. The frame's exterior surface was primed. The appropriate placards and warning lights were fitted to the interior as well.
