Bob Turner thanks for the reply. Sorry for the duplicate posts, I was to impatient I guess. Posted twice and didn’t see either one then all three showed up. I tried to delete them but couldn’t make it work. Bart if you can help the first two can be deleted.
I do have a service manual that makes it sound straightforward but having been elbow deep in ag equipment to many times, sometimes things are not what they seem. Just wondering what others have experienced.
it isn't attached along the front fairing, right? it's just tucked in behind the strip along the front? i was told it's pretty well formed so it holds its shape when removed making it pretty easy, I'd guess, to get the new one in. but, that's coming from a guy that thought rebuilding the wings, cover, and paint would take about four months.....a year and a half ago!
That’s pretty funny four or five months,, I thought the same thing when I started then life got in the way. I have heigh hopes to finish early next year. So like you I planed on months now I’ll be happy in one year. I only planed on simple recover. But nothing is simple.
Yeah, Bartman, I got the project without the windshield in place. Have a new one. Does anyone have a picture of the top and bottom of the windshield in place that shows how it is held in or intersects? It is shaped well. Also. Anyone know if the 1974 and on service manual would cover most of the airframe stuff on a 1965 ECA as it was mostly unchanged throughout the years except for minor panel mods
If you are truly motivated, six months will do it. In 1971 I did a spar replacement and complete cover in four months flat. Working during the day and singles bars at night. I really wanted to fly. The J3 is somewhat easier than a Champ . . .
