I am in need of a lower right wing. Prefer uncovered. Pleas email me with price and pictures. Would also be willing to pay someone to build one for me.

Great Dennis,

I have all the fittings as none of them was damaged when the pole hit the wing or I should say I hit the post. My wing tips are good. Where the post went into the wing it looks like someone took a 4" section out of the center of the wing through the first spar. You can send me the pictures to [email protected] along with your price. Hopefully it will work for me.

Guys I actually need the lower left wing if you are seated in the cockpit looking forward. My AP and the tach company, I have recently had to order two cables from, have me describing things as if I was standing in front of the plane.

Anyone shipping or just moving cross country with something that can handle a 4' x 9' wing, maybe even tied to car rack.

Here are the photos for the left lower wing, all glue joints tight with T88 epoxy.
Front spar is the best i have seen at approx 40 rings per inch. Rear spar is approx 24 rings per inch.
Out to out of steel spar attach fittings is 21.25". i would bolt the wing in place and
use drag wires to adjust for I-strut ...etc.
The wings were load tested and deflection measured, i have reports.
Built in 1990's.

Dennis that is pretty work and exactly what I need. I have everything needed to finish them. I'll try to make you proud. If anyone has any comments on what the fair price is for the wing please chime in.

I had a great visit with Dennis Friday night when I got to his home. Couldn't ask for more hospitality and great airplane talk. We got the wing loaded Saturday morning and I was on my way home. Too bad business matters kept me from spending more time since we were so alike in our interests. From airplanes to old cars we matched perfectly. Thank you Dennis for all your help.
