    I do have a set of patterns I used for my '47 PA12. Happy to pass them on. Installed Kydex panels.

    If I recall you mentioned flaming a break to get rid of white lines? Do you ever heat an area before bending it in a break or beading it?

    Thanks for all the photos. Beautiful work which has prompted a million question. For now, do you have any info on wording for a Form 337 for Kydex installation on a certified Piper PA-12? Thanks.

    Do you still have your patterns for your "47" PA--12 interior? I'm just now getting around to my "47". Thanks, John

    A pack of posterboard, scissors, a ruler,a fine tip Sharpie, and some masking tape... you can make custom fitted patterns for your own plane in a couple of hours. Time well spent.

    That’s what I did. I looked over Mike’s posts and other Kydex masters. Then went for it. It is fun to work with and cuts easily with a good pair of snips. It bends nice on a brake and a light touch with a heat gun will take the bend marks out.
