Renovating a 1974 Gulfstream Sovereign
When the Gulfstream came into the shop it had been sitting in a yard too long and let’s just say was not exactly in prime condition. Pretty much everything needed replacing, but what a great canvas to work from. Thank you Wally Bynam! We had to start by ripping out the entire interior and removing all the windows.
The outside started to come clean with some serious elbow grease and aluminum cleaner. You can see in the picture above the difference in the top and bottom of the body. We also started cleaning up the rest of the exterior details.

Once we got down to the frame we found we needed to replace that at well for the most part so the team started cutting and welding!
After a bunch of hours sweating it out we had a solid new structure to work from that will last for years to come!
With a solid frame to work from the team started by putting in a new sub-floor that will be the base for the rest of the build out.
The team is pretty happy with the results so far! Nothing beats a job well done and for Presley a good cigar at the end of a long day!
We have a long, long, long way to go! But this has been a great start so far and we look forward to sharing our progress as this masterpiece comes together.
