Introduction from Chapter 92:

Building a GlaStar—with Dave Prizio

Taking over a project started by someone else and bringing it to completion is a special case of building a plane. I will cover topics such as selecting a partly completed project, evaluating it, and getting it back home. Then I will look at the pros and cons of living with work that others have done, both good and not so good. Lastly I will look at my decisions about how to equip the new plane while staying within some sort of budget.
