• 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.

These were offmy salvaged 'bolt. There is no elongation of any of the holes, and none seem to be damaged - but they'e ugly, they currently have a coat of silver paint plus gunk. Anyone have any recommendations on giving them a new lease of life? How to clean? Can they be plated? What's the best way to really check for integrity? I have some penetrant red dye for crack testing welds, will that suffice?
