I am looking at buying a verieze that was finished in 99 and had one hour logged on it

but it need to be rebuilt the wings are in poor shape after sitting around for 9 years in a barn

need to redo all the rigging and  motor needs to be put back on and many other things

Now in doing this can i re do the regitration so i can have all the perks to follow the 51% rule

i like doing my own repairs and my own inspection also i will need to do the 40 hour flyoff time on it

if I buy the plane i will be doing alot of mods to it like doing the 22 inch nose on it and also adding the electric nose gear  also adding the electris belly board

any info you may have will help i have tred finding this info and cant find a thing

I might be doing a rebuilding project myself. It will involving taking everything apart all the way down to the frame and then putting everything back together again. A friend told me that if I document the process, that I would be eligible for a repairman certificate (I believe this is what the OP is asking). Just curious if that's legit. I don't believe a repairman certificate was ever issued for this aircraft.

In a nutshell, all a Repairman Certificate allows you to do is perform an annual condition inspection on one particular aircraft. Only one Repairman Certificate will ever be issued per aircraft, so if the previous owner/builder had a repairman certificate issued, then it's doubtful you could get one.

 

All that being said, since it's an experimental aircraft, you can still do all that work yourself, you'll just have to get an A&P (an IA is no required) to sign off the condition inspection.

If it only had 1 hr logged after it was completed,look very carefully at this aircraft. There may be a reason it never flew again. Be sure to check alignment of all flight surfaces. Please be careful!

Only the original builder of the airplane can get the repairmal certificate is able to get the repairman certificate. If the plane has been registered legaly there is no such thing as re-registration.
