If I decide to build a PA-18 from "scratch", will any J-3 stuff fit? I might have a line on a couple J-3 basket cases for cheap. I am mostly talking about fittings, ribs, seat, etc..........Thanks for all the responses I've been getting concerning my plans to build a PA-18, one way or the other!

Ribs are the same if it is a metal spar wing. Seat is different. Control system is different. Build a nice J-3, sell it and buy a Super Cub in need of work. Just my opinion. Or hold out for the SC.

Very few parts are the same, some ribs and misc wing parts are the same, but very little.
