    The PA 11 and 18 top decks are completely different. Forward wing spars in the 11 join the structure inside the cabin, while the 18 front spars join the fuselage at the wing root.

    I also should have asked does anyone know of a pa-11 jig near the Minneapolis/St. Paul area?

    If the jig has an interchangeable top it should work. Have you checked with Javron? I don't know if he does repairs but he may steer you to someone who does.

    Yes it will. gear and rear spar attach points should be the same. As mentioned, the front attach point is completely different, but it still will fit in the jig.

    I built a front spar adapter to fit a J3/PA11 fuselage in my PA18 jig. Everything else is the same.
