Dan, thanks for answering my question. Thanks to all for posting experiences.
I’m rebuilding an -6A. A solid build but no Bronze Lindy. Flown, but sat in a back corner of a hangar for 15 years. I ran into the “Layers of an onion” thing. “While the wings are off and the tail is off and the engine is off, etc. I might as well get that fixed/changed/uncomplicated...”
The de-construction stopped in December. The new Vans -A engine mount and nose gear are on. I have a slick firewall. So this is a timely thread. Going the fiberfrax / SS foil route, as well.
Again,a big thanks to all those who’ve tested & shared knowledge on firewall forward.
