    Fuselage Frame Paint
    Gents- I will be recovering my Model C soon, going with Oratex.  I am debating repainting the fuselage in the process.  Majority of the fuselage paint is in good shape, no rust present.  I am simply thinking of updating the color.   Just starting the homework....
    Who knows what type of factory paint - or - powder coating was used by Avid?  My plane has the normal white/off-white color.If a paint (not powder coat), would there be any hesitation in painting over the existing finish (with light prep of course)?  I would like to avoid stripping the existing finish if possible.Thanks for any input.

    Avid STOL Wings For Sale - Clearing Space!
    Hello Gents,
    I have a pair of Avid STOL wings for sale here in San Diego.  
    Age and full condition unknown, they will require restoration, including rib-tail flaperon attachments.  Flaperons not included.
    Asking $500 for the pair and motivated to clear some space!  I have jury struts available as well, separately.
    Email or PM me with any questions.  Will be posting to Barnstormers soon.

    nlappos - found this just as you linked me from the other post.  Thanks!  Looking forward to any additional performance experience you get especially as it compares to the 582.

    You have me curious about the 670. Do you have a link to any posts on the improvements you have found and what the conversion from the 582 involved? Thx.

    Thanks, Jim.   Admittedly, just looks ,  no other good reason.  I can understand shortening the lift struts but I assume the spar-fuselage bolts and clearance holes would no longer line up?

    Reduced Dihedral
    Hey Gents - Heading into restoring my wings - I am curious if there is a way to reduce the wing dihedral once a wing is already drilled and rigged.
    Thanks for letting me know any options !

    STOL Wing Rib Dimensioned Drawings or CAD
    Gents- does anyone have detail dimensioned drawings or CAD for STOL wing ribs?  I am setting up my CNC to cut new rib tails and forms for new wing tips

    Georgeous plane.  Perhaps this was asked earlier but it appears you have very little dihedral.  Only curious, is this by design or your implementation in the build?

    Hey Mike
    Just to confirm, are these the Desser 27 10-8 tires?  (old posts and the links no longer work)
    What 8” wheels and brake setup would you guys recommend?
    For those folks running these tires, have they worn well?
