    This is the heavy fabric wick type stuff on my Cub. I believe it's the original stuff that was
    used. It might be Fabreeka - "original fabric reinforced, elastomeric pad developed in 1936"
    for impact s...

    some good reference info in this link. I think that rubber pad is actually some kind of thick,
    tough cloth material - forget the name.

    pre-defined entry points so the termites and carpenter ants wouldn't bore their own holes and

    The panel in my Cub has been there for decades, if not since WW2. The only original L-4H/J
    instrument panel reference I have is the image in the L-4 manual, the one with the graphics
    error showing 2 c...

    I pulled out my Piper NOS L-4H/J panel to get you the measurements, all the holes are
    pre-drilled...except for the flange! I'll go check my Cub sitting in the barn.

    Simple enough to check - the FAA database clearly says N51503 is Piper s/n 9811, so the
