    CD Shadow G-MYEP

    In 2003 I had a CD Shadow G-MYIP and had some of the best flying in my life in it. This last weekend and 15 years later, I became the proud owner of its sibling: G-MYEP

    G-MYEP is a credit to its former owner Stuart Taylor who completely and totally rebuilt it after a heavy landing. It took him two years of evidently intensive work - but what a result. This is as nice a Shadow as I have ever seen and I am proud to be its new owner. The wiring loom that is now easily accessible behind the raised panel is a work of art in itself.

    You must feel pretty lucky to get a shadow like that!! Love the instruments. Well done and good luck with your new machine.

    Wow as Terry says, you must be "chuffed to Naafi breaks" with it.. (shows how old I am... as you say a credit to the previous owner.
    Unfortunately, being a big fat decrepit old git... I would have to throw out the "heavy lump of cast iron" from the foot well
    But with having "short fat hairy legs... and arms" I reckon I could even adjust QNH with that set up!!

    How I wish I had never sold my Shadow... the "Frustratin Fruster".. is just that in comparison...

    What a gorgeous Shadow, I often regret selling mine and seeing yours has certainly re-lit the flame
    Hope you have many happy hours with her.
