John; do you know if this mount is fabricated in accordance with the supplemental drawing from the Pietenpol family?
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. My compute was hacked. What a mess. I am assuming it is as the mounting tabs are to specs. It was a flying Piet built in 92'.

Re: replacing bungees (need advice)

My Piet, acquired in many pieces, didn't have the bungees. Would someone like to tell me what size the cord should be? It may be in the manual, but the one I ordered has gotten lost in the mail (at least the dog didn't eat it). Approximately how long should I start with? Thanks. John :oops:

Covering the turtle deck

When covering the fuselage, is it necessary/required to rib stitch the ribs of the turtle deck? If not, should anti chaffing tape be used anyway? Thanks John

Re: Where are the Piet Folks Based...?

Well, I'm in Nashville TN now, and was just in Chattanooga today for a meeting. I started my Piet in Fresno CA and hung out annually with the Weat Coast Pieters before moving here. I moved to Nashville 2.5 years ago, and my project (a fully framed fuse) is in my storage unit waiting until I can buy...
