Myself and a Cessna 414

Hi community, Last week my A&P mentor and friends asked me if I wanted to help treat and remove the coating that belongs on the Cessna 414 de-ice boots. Of course I said yes just to do something with airplanes and to learn something new. He said it’s a 2 day process and the process I’m doing right now is a 7-8 hour process plus another day to do treatment. Below is some pictures of the process and what I’m doing to treat the boots


Cool - those are some high quality photos there.

Totally jealous of you there though. :)


Thanks! Glad you liked the photos


Erm I have one BIG MASSIVE concern

Why is there some green tape on the wings

That’s on purpose. That’s so we wouldn’t get anything on the wing surfaces. It’s an outline

Nice photos, I really like how good they are!


Thank you! I appreciate that

Just checked on flight radar at the registration and it’s a 40 year old plane… looks pretty good for a 40 yr old

I know the owner and he keeps it in great shape. He only wants the best

Very nice. I had the chance of doing this at work with our company’s aircraft. cleaned , waxed, and dried the PA 28 and PIVI all in 3 hours. Then , it rained insert sad face here.

I’ll redo it Sunday lol

But hey, I get free flying out of it with my colleague pilots. I love it!!!

Finished the project this afternoon. Can anyone tell the difference?


Nice plane, nice photos, Nice way to make someone triggered who’s not present
