    The Citation 4 comes with 40' hoses (2 x 20') for the reasons that KAP and Bill brought up. I
    spoke to Jan at Axis about the warm air concern before ordering and she told me that the two
    lengths of ho...

    Thanks to all for the advice. I ordered a Citation 4 HVLP with half mask and hood. The 12 x 22
    x 10 booth is built around a garage door and I just have to sort out the evacuation fans
    now.Jack

    Looks really good. What are you using to evacuate the fumes from your booth? I will be using
    Poly Fibre and am getting ready to build a booth inside my shop using 2x4s and poly. Paint

    Thanks for sharing that link Don, I find this stuff interesting. My bolts are silver, drilled
    and have two dots on the right side of the 'X". Not sure when manufacturers went from silver to
    gold cadmi...

    Clyde Smith tells me they were used by Piper. I would have tossed them out had I not been
    curious about a part number.

    While disassembling my right wing today I looked for a part number on the head of a bolt and
    was surprised to see this. Most of the hardware on my wing was original and has "Piper Cub" on
    the bolts. T...

    Has this plane been plane been stored on floats in the water? Being very familiar with metals
    around the marine environment, electrolysis can corrode pits in aluminum very rapidly. Zinc

    Just to reiterate what was previously stated, DO NOT USE A WIRE BRUSH to clean spars.
    ScotchBrite, brass brush (?), other approved methods. NO STEEL WOOL, STEEL BRUSHES, ETC. AS
    THIS INCREASES CORROSI...

    Thanks to all for your input and recommendations. The sections seen in the pictures are the
    worst areas of corrosion along the spars. The black spots are amplified a little by shadowing,

JLCub, I too would so much like to cover with Oratex but what to do about getting it signed off by AI? I am in poor spot for painting, so Oratex would be perfect except it is not certified yet. How were you going to get around that fact when it came for inspections?
