Well I'm going to have to eat some Crow. My Wife and I went to a Airstream Rally this past weekend near Buena Vista CO, and it rained, and rained , and rained, then pea size hail, then it rained some more. My previously reported and bragged about GT that had no leaks, now has a small leak on the bottom inboard corner of the right wing window. I bought a small tube of latex caulking at the local Ace Hardware store and sealed the area up and stopped the drip. This weekend I will seal it up properly before I head out on the road again to Sacramento CA for the next month

Hey Kip....work those leaks. I see your still flying the Herk. I sure miss it. Here is a little clip from my Southern Air Transport days. Most folks won't understand, but you will.

'71 Globetrotter Full Monte

Son has been driving KC130J for USMC in Robert Cross old unit in Japan. Those Dowty-Rotol prop blades change the sight and sound of the classic Herk.

The Globetrotter is my current project as I have to change 6 skins now, along with the stringer problems. I,m going to try to bend all the new stringers up today. We have a CNC press brake and it will take longer to set it up then to run the parts. I,m going to make a bunch, so if anyone needs some, I will have them. I,m making 2 styles. Zee's and C channels, 1inch legs and total height of 1.750, .040 thick, 2024-T-3.

Hi, I would like to purchase a Roller if you have any made. Thank you, Mark 785.366.6049.

Using the right channel

Hi Kip
I got busted fron the site admin for trying to respond to you from my I-phone. I guess i should use the right channel. Speaking of channels I am looking for 1 1/2 " base(id) with 1 1/2 outside leg and 1/2 inside keg. If this is what you are bending count me in.
I'm in the middle of a frame-off of a '60 Tradewind. My first A/S project.
Your posts are great! Really helpful.

I had planned on a lot of work this last summer but my labor was re-tasked to a remodel of our family cabin. I'm traveling a lot this fall so no work. I am still planning on having it done before I retire in 4 years.
