Need left wing & aileron for 1943 J3C-65 (L4-B)

Our beautiful show-quality L4-B made an off-airport landing back on May 21. The plane was totaled, and we have purchased the salvage from the insurance company. Yes, we now have ourselves a project:

The prop was reduced to splinters, the engine was damaged, and of course needs a full teardown no matter what, the left wing was destroyed, the right wing sustained minor damage, the fuselage was damaged near the firewall, the empennage was unscathed.

We've got a new engine on the way, the fuselage is being repaired and will be finished next week. Our biggest issue right now is the left wing and left aileron. We need new ones!

Any leads on a left wing and aileron for a 1943 Cub will be appreciated. We need a wood spar, to match the right wing. (The wings were rebuilt with new wood spars in 1998.)

Still looking for a serviceable left wing for a J3 with wood spar.

Any and all leads will be appreciated.

Hi, saw your post, I have a wood spar left wing with good cover. No aileron. It has a little hanger rash on the tip. Came from a plane that had the right wing damaged, but bought new Univair wings for it. It is in London, KY. I can have some pics sent to you if interested. Also, have right wing with alum spar damaged to outer tip, and both spars. Let me know if you have an interest.

Thanks but we found a serviceable (sort of) left wing and we are in the process of restoring it.
