170B wing

170B wing

Well I have a C-170B that I purchased 2 years ago. There is some damage to the wing leading edge and it is time to correct the evils in the wings. We are pulling them off the plane for a complete inspection, repairs, stripping, and painting and one thing that is obvious before we even get started is damage to the leading edge. It is an early serial number wing. Anyone have any suggestions on reputable sources for the wing?

Re: 170B wing

Well, it doesn,t look like anybody wanted to offer any direction or even comment but we found the short outboard leading edge had been replaced along with the last two ribs.The two ribs were new but the section of leading edge had been cut from what was probably a scrap leading edge. It was a little bit too short and whoever did the repair "stretched" toward the top which made the leading edge turn slighly upward. Why do people have to do that sort of work? Anyways it is corrected and the wings are ready to come off for stripping, inspection cleaning and painting after any other repairs or corrosion found is corrected.
