Hey folks, I want to recover the rudder on the Skybolt but don't want to order excessive amounts of fabric and chemicals. It's Stitts process and was wondering if anyone had any extra material from previous projects laying around they might want to sell. Would appreciate anything you might have.
thanks and best regards,
Brad

What specifically are you interested in? The chemicals will incure hazardous shipping. I have some fabric I could part with and some tape. Don't know if I have any bias tape though.

Think I have just about everything ready to go. Just need to order some chemicals, paint and some bias tape. Many the tape is expensive. Just need a little, not the whole role....Oh well.
Best regards
Brad
