Hey all, Just uncovered my tail feathers on my new project and all was good exept the left elevator. It is a mess and pretty much would take a complete start over from scratch rebuild. Anybody have an extra in good shape they would like to get rid of? Thanks John

John,
I have one, I'll have to uncover it to check it out. What part of the planet are you located? BTW an uncovered elevator can be used left or right, it's only after covering and drain holes are made that they become left or right. Jim Swayze

Jim, I'm located in Colorado. Let me know what kind of shape yours is in and how much you would have to have for it and maybe we can make a deal. The elevator I have, some time in its life had all the ribs were re-welded onto it and the hinges are pointing upward. Also the trailing edge has a section that they used flat material and rolled it to make a tube. The control horn obviously is also not centered where it needs to be. Thanks John

John,
I just cut open both ends and it looks brand new inside. Is $200.00 ok for it and can you come pick it up?
PS; this is the later 2 hinge elevator.
