• 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 was thinking about going for a gray bubble. I do have a clear one, unfitted, that came with the salvaged Skybolt I bought. Today I decided to clean it up by getting all the protectivecling-film off of it so I could inspect for any scratches before I decide to sell it. This film has been on the bubble so many years, that most of it seems to have adhered to the bubble. I cannot get it off. I have tried breaking it down with MEK, acetone, water and soap, wd-40, . A finger nail will actually take off a little bit, but forthe time it took me, it would take me 10 weekends to get it stripped! Any ideas?
