    Wing Rib/Fabric Repair Near Pittsburgh

    Well, I was sitting in my Super Cub, No. 1 in line for takeoff at Sentimental Journey last week, just seconds from a clean escape, when someone struck my right wing with his left wing and slightly bent a rib and did minor fabric damage.
    The plane is flyable, as no fabric was torn and no stitches were severed, but I want to get it fixed to look like it did before.
    Can anyone suggest a good tube and fabric guy within a few hundred miles of Pittsburgh? (I actually am based in Morgantown,WV). These folks are getting hard to find. Thanks!

    Sam Scriiva BVI, not fast but good, will teach you to do it yourself if interested. Really a good guy, my hangar is available for your use there as my cub is currently on floats.

    Might call the local sheriff there to find him, heard he got pounded by the Roller Derby girls

    And yes, it is close. Probably closer than Anchorage is to me!

    After checking with several individuals mentioned here and elsewhere, I finally took my PA-18 to Frank Sabo at Tiffin Aire (Tiffin, Ohio). They are in the process of painting and should be done next week. After I get it back I'll report on the quality of the work.
    Many thanks to everyone who offered suggestions and names - much appreciated!
