    Are copper brake lines the only way to go in a J3 or is aluminum or stainless permissible? I
    think my 180 has aluminum... Side-point: does somebody have the PDF of the J3 brake line
    print?KAP's work s...

    Piper rented/leased space in a non Piper owned building? They grew fast, which would make
    sense...The people that took these few historical grainy black and white pictures; I wonder if
    they ever thoug...

    Hard to make the argument that the factory storage facility airplanes have an incorrect paint
    job! (Joke)Are we sure this is in the Piper factory, and that these are new? Remember, back in
    those days,...

    That lightning bolt is distinctly different than the Cub Crafters lightning bolt, and different
    than what, I believe to be anyhow, the conventional "correct" bolt. Compare them... Hard to
    make the arg...

    I'm getting ready to install cowling. The plane will have a 90-8 in it, however for mockup I'd
    like to use a 65 or 85. Are they all (externally) the same size? Will the exhaust pipes be in
    the EXACT s...

    Floating nut plate idea implemented. Excellent idea. See pictures. Now, tell me what I haven't
    fully thought through. So Installing the tank after the boot cowl is installed is a bloody job.
    Why could...

    What years, if any, did the stripe continue onto the rudder?Sik

    Nut plates on the top straps... should they be floating nut plates or will standard nut plates
    be just as good? Size? (Side point, my goal is to not have one screw anyplace on the plane, nut
    plates ri...

    I hope he doesn't mind me posting his picture.... This seems rather tight on the sides and
    maybe an 1-1.5"on the bottom? It's tough to tell in the picture. This would be a fun airplane
    to look over. S...

    So if the pin issue was moot, optimal would be flush on the top, a quarter 3/8 inch or so from
    the boot cowl on the sides, and say an inch on the bottom? I'm assuming there should be some
    gap on the b...
