kinda like how the bottom pins overcenter/lock in my -12 seat bottom....
This is the coolest back seat option I have seen so far. Thank you Mike for sharing it with us...
I just uploaded a Riblett 613.5 airfoil drawn at 1:1 with 63in cord for Piper Cubs and Wag Aero.
I hope itīs of use for everyone interested.

Combined with the carbon fiber tank covers looks like a total of 18# lighter for a set of wings.
Wait, a Cub Made of Carbon, this all sounds too familiar,

An engineer and builder friend pointed out that the rectangular gussets used through out the rib construction have corners that do not add to the strength; they just add weight. The picture below shows the gussets trimmed of the unnecessary corners. How
