    Here are the drawings for the two wood parts. You may need to adjust to fit your plane.

    I can not find anything that limits the sliding window travel in the down position. The way the
    rivets are placed in the triangle sheet metal pieces, two of them are within the U-channel. I

Keri, really enjoyed looking over the photos of your work on the wood Cub wings. I have not seen the Cub Club Cub plans. How much of your build do you have completed? There is a guy at work that built a PnP that won a number of awards at Oshkosh. He keeps it at the airport our EAA group hosts its meetings. Beautiful plane. How much time do you have on you PnP? I look forward to following the rest of your build. There are some significant differences between the wood and metal wings. I am not a Cub history buff so I do not know if the changes are by age or if they were specifically for the metal spar. The immediate difference is the location of the "H" shaped drag strut assembly. The entire "H" is located next to the rib and your assembly straddles the rib. The pulley routing is probably similar. Thank you for the help you have offered. Maybe we will runinto each other when we get our projects flying. Till then good luck with you build. Joseph Begany
