I'm definitley going to be putting a new coat of color on my cub this winter. I was just called by a guy that went and checked the fabric on the airplane and said it's in perfect shape except for two small spots of tape that needs to be fixed. After seeing his cub today, and realizing how much brighter, shiny and prettier it is then mine, I made my mind up.

I understand that Lockhaven yellow is for Pre-war cubs, and the OEM yellow is for post war cubs. Is the OEM brighter?
