Looking for informative tips on rejuvanating the fabric/polytone finish on a set of wings finished 20 yrs ago,  They have fine cracks here and there with a few spots of ringworm.  Otherwise the fabric looks and feelsvery good.Nice and tight. No peeling or delamination.  Looking thru the inspection holes at a light shows what one might think of seeing a few stars in a dark sky.  I have read the poly manuel,  I am looking for something in the archives or first t hand experience.  What really happens when you spray on two or three coats of poly fiber rejuvanator????   thanks Bob

The best one to talk to would be Jon Goldenbaum at Poly Fiber. Call their number on the manual. Great guy and more than happy to help. I have taken several courses from him.

Cheers

I have used the process once before on a Super Cub.  I added the rejuvinator to the new paint and repainted the plane.  It looked like new when finnished.  This was in 1989 and if I can't find the photo the plane should not be hard to track down.  It belonged to the FAA out of OKC and was used to train their pilots.  I would like to see how it held up myself.  If I can find the photo it will have the n number on it so you should be able to track down the plane.  Roger

The question is not so much as how the plane looked but how well it held up.  I think the scan came through.  See if you can locate a current photo and let me know.  Roger
