• 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 need some advice on how to solve a problem on my 1991 Skybolt.

The problem is that I have a rater great play in the trim tab arms caused by enlarged holes for the push/pull rod.
The material as you can see on the pictures not that thick.

How shall I in the best way put more material on, so I can drill and ram a new hole ??
I dont whant to put on a lot of weight.

(and yes, i will re-paint them)

Best regards
