• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

I plan to remove whats left of the plastic film, inspect deeper / buff out some light scratches, and re-film.

1. The plastic protective film looks like it has been on the bubble for years, it will not peel off in large chunks. Anyone know what solvent is safe to break it down?

2. What compound can be used to polish out light scratches?

3. Is there aDIYmethod of applying new protective film?
