Factory paint. Universals and cables looked to be in decent shape

Standing water and evidence of long term water in the tail area. Preservation needed. Boeshield is perfect for this once the water has been removed

More evidence of long term standing water. Making sure the drain holes are clear and a closer inspection for corrosion should be carried out.

Factory zinc chromate paint

The horizontal stabilizer was reported as having been rebuilt

New attach hardware and recently refinished structure

reinforcing tape pulling away and should be fixed prior to the next flight. Upper side of the LH elevator

 

Recent repair?

Tail gear was reported as having been removed and rebuilt. It looks like it as does the main gear. Very nice

trim shafts in the aft fuselage. The universals that I was able to tough all had little wear. The cables looked good too
