Fuselage cleaning

Everything on the fuselage is now disassembled. That sounds like a lot of work, but on a Piper Cub it's really not that bad. Carefully taking notes and lots of photos to document how it all should go back in place. Then starts the fun: rubbing off the old ceconite that (no matter how carefully you take the old cover off) will stick to the tubes.


I'm very careful when it comes to using chemicals - probably too much. I asked the old guys at the airport what type of glows they used and their reply was "Glows ?...". But you should see their hands...




Found one slightly bent tube on the right side under the elevator. Will have to get this repaired and assessed by a mechanic.
