My Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 Rebuild Diary 2008.

22-January-2008. Right hand lower wing.
One really big problem - where to get the material locally to remake the wooden brace rib that cracked. Dave (English Dave to Yahoo group readers) bailed me out of a big problem, he gave me the materials I needed. Saving about four weeks to get hold of them. Thanks Dave.

The wood to make a new rib.
First I cut the rib to shape and fitted in place. Tightened the drag wires and checked everything was correct.
In place and all seems to be correct.
So I removed the rib and completed it.
