    Up here Finishmaster brings in 55 gallon drums of "the good stuff" and sells it to shops. As far as I know you can't buy the good paint stripper off the shelf any more.

    Trim could go either way. If you're already in there and have the money to drop on the STC and parts, the PA-18 trim is nice to have. I had problems with my J3 trim for a while that -18 trim probably...

    All good questions. That was my apprehension was the cost to replace the 18 gallon tank. Since the 12 gallon tanks sit between ribs rather than on them you would have to add back in full ribs in the...

    I think dual 12 gallon tanks is a good mod to add in just for future resale and the potential that you can do XC flights.

    It's too bad Atlee's STC SA459AL is only applicable to the J3 and not the PA-11. That would provide a full PA-18 stock size baggage area and be the way to go. I wonder if you could get their engineer...

    Agreed on most of that. The PA-18 elevator system doesn't add any weight and the baggage is absolutely worth it. The PA-18 trim system is a worthwhile upgrade as well if you're in there. Use oil lite...
