    So then why paint inside the tank bay at all- it’ll just run out the drain grommets…?

    I’ve never understood the “paint the inside of the tank bay, and that’ll solve the problem” theory- fuel just runs aft of the rear spar, where the backside isn’t painted, and the wrinkles begin. ...

    Broke through crust and got pulled to the side. Tipped up on one tip and prop then came down. Nose gear structure looks ok. 172XP

    ‘Tis the season. 172 trike on 29’s tried the the ski strip/gravel runway here yesterday and got the prop and wingtip. Seems we get at least one about this time every year…:banghead:

    Not my experience... Kinda ridiculous when you can buy all those parts new. But then again, they don’t like us replacing all the old parts with new at the same time...:roll:

    It’s a non-issue. I flew an airframes 4-place with brakes just like this and didn’t think about it vs stock cub. I think the angle of the pic maybe makes it seem worse; I don’t remember the master...

    Delfleet shoots real nice, but Iíve never used it on fabric and I wouldnít- I doubt itís flexible enough long-term. Although youíll probably be fine in a hangar and fairly stable climate. Bob, the...

    I guess I don’t see why yaw control is any more difficult than pitch control- If the nose goes left you push the right rudder pedal, if the nose goes down, you pull the stick back. Screw up either...

    I knew some would think my response arrogant, but that’s not at all what I intended. I don’t think any less of nosewheel pilots; that’s a ridiculous, shallow thought process. My question was based...

    Respectfully, if there are folks who aren’t cut out for tailwheel, are they cut out for flying? Honest question; genuinely interested in an explanation.

    The pa-12 windshield trim strips I got didnít fit the Dakota boot cowl at all, so I made a fiberglass lower strip. Other than that it was just like any cub windshield install.
