I am asking for a friend who wants to buy a certified Cub.
How high is too high for a Cub airframe? For example, my friend found one that has 8000hrs on the original fuselage. They apparently recovered the whole plane in 2002 but didn't bother to replace the fuselage. I found that odd, but maybe the old Cub fuselages hold up for that many hours? Overall the plane looks great in the photos, but the first thing that bothers me is the strut attach fitting with 8000hrs on it. Doesn't sit well with me. Opinions?
It's a 1970's, newer factory engine, recovered in 2002. Owner claims it's a real peach.
