    Madras wing tip broke

    So I have a customer with Madras wing tips. One was damaged pretty good. I know they are not made anymore so my options are to repair the fiberglass and repaint or replace. What other options are out there for replacement tips that I can swap them for? Thanks, Tim

    I have a one which came off a Pacer what side do you need?

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

    fix it... that's not bad

    mask tape outside

    pop rivet metal strips on outside to hold it temporary,

    repair inside

    drill out rivets & remove strips & tape

    Do them a favor and replace. Lots of options fit the rib. Demers' are heavy. Had them on my Champ.

    I forgot to mention first step. Take cutoff wheel an cut a small gap at all cracks to get rid of the overlap.
